The power of personal story and how to harness it

Banner with words My unique perception
Last week, we introduced you to the guiding philosophy we call Human-Centered YOUnityTM, and why we believe it’s the key to building a better future for all of us.

It starts with ME (you) and my own unique perception, and continues to THEM (others) and their own unique perspective. Then, WE tie everything together with our shared, collective human experience. 

We’ve seen that before we can hope to collaborate with our fellow human beings, it’s important to understand others and empathize with their experiences. But before we can truly hope to understand and empathize with others, we must first understand and care for ourselves, and the unique personal story that guides each of us to who and where we are now. 

Where you grew up, the challenges you faced as an adolescent, and your evolution into the person you are today: everyone has their own story, and yours is as unique as you are. 

Your story impacts the way you see the world, the persona you adopt in public social life, and the decisions you make on a daily basis. Taking back your personal story affords you the opportunity to acknowledge your past, how it affects your present, and harness it for the future. 

Spark! developed Origins: The Power of Personal Story to help guide you through the process of rediscovering your story, and teach you how to share it with others.
