When someone asks me this question, I have to respond with a question.
Have you filled in the book that you bought at the store yet? If not, why not?
Most people don't fill in the book because a) They don't make the time and treat the effort like a project b) The book includes too many questions or c) They get bored or wonder whether anyone else will care about their responses.
My Legacy of Love Heirloom™ workshops:
a) Teach you to treat the effort like a project. You'll have a start date, an end date, a process to follow, a tool to use, a team to work with, and a predetermined end product that you can share with multiple loved ones.
b) I once bought a book of prompts, and I was completely overwhelmed by the number of questions. I call it the tome. I vowed not to expect my Storytellers to complete a tome. They complete a designed set of prompts that allow them to dive deeper (hence the Diving Board analogy). At a minimum, they document the basics of the most important stories for their loved ones.
c) Whether you are answering questions about your life or writing chapters for sale as a published author, you'll experience the same mindset issues. You need to stay on top of the tricks your mind will play on you. One of the best ways to combat these limiting beliefs or lies that the enemy will tell you is to work with a group.
You will still complete your responses independently, but when you question why you are spending your time on a precious gift for your family, you'll have a group of likeminded people ready to encourage you and remind you of your ultimate goal—to forever connect all generations of your family, one story at a time.
