There is something powerful that happens when you write out of the overflow of your heart with your audience in mind. You’re not necessarily caught up in the technical side of writing, but you’re letting your passion show in the syllables that you’re putting together.
Because of that, anyone who is reading is going to feel an electric connection with what you’re saying and, ultimately, with you. When you write from your heart, you have the ability to move their heart as well. And they’ll remember you; they will remember how you made them feel.
When you’re not used to writing from your heart, it can feel like more work to get into, so I wanted to share with you three ways that I have used to write from my heart. Once you start, you simply won’t be able to stop.
Write With Your Audience as Your Vision
I am big on the idea that everything you write publicly is for someone else. You’re writing to serve or help someone. You can share vulnerably and honesty, but it is for the benefit of the person reading, not for your benefit. So whenever you sit down to write a blog or a post or anything of the like, see your audience in your mind.
What do they really need to hear? What are they struggling with? What do they want? And how can you speak to those very things? How can you use your words to be a balm and solution to what they need the most?
Write from Experience
The most valuable thing you have is your experience and your story. It is the easiest place to write from because it is something that you’ve lived, something you are intimately connected to. Think about your story and the moments that have defined you.
What in those places can you share from? How can you share from those journeys or experiences to make someone else’s life better? Write hard and honest about those things and your heart will drip from every word like gold.
Write Like the World is Waiting
You have amazing things in your heart to share. You can say them with boldness and confidence because you believe that the world is waiting. Every time you go to write anything, position it in your mind like, someone needs to hear this, or someone has been waiting for this, as that’ll empower you to have the confidence to really bring your heart writing with conviction.
So, think about what are the things in your heart that you really need to say? How can you put syllables to them with confidence? Who will be changed in the process?
Bring your heart to your words. It gets a little messy sometimes, but it is worth it, because the impact you can have on the other side of it, is unparalleled.
