MY SPARK OF GENIUS?
19.3 The Power of Story Transforms
I couldn’t believe it!
I was 18 working at my first
pre-school teaching job
and all the wild uncontrollable boys
were sitting transfixed
listening to me!
In fact they wouldn’t let me stop.
Why? Because I was telling them
the first story I had ever made up.
It was about the world of Zambadoodle
and what happened when the way
between worlds disappeared.
As you can imagine many adventures ensued and continue until this very day!
Just as the most distractible kids were riveted by my story so are we all riveted by the power of story.
Even in the completely distracting world of the internet our stories captivate our audience and our ideal clients.
Our stories build connections and trust and inspire.
Without them we are lost.
There is a deep place to go within to find powerful stories and images that transform. It passes resistance by with a flourish and opens the way to our genius and finally gives wing to our story and lets it soar.
You do not have to be a professional storyteller to do this.
It is natural to humans to tell stories. You can learn to make that natural ability work for you in any area of life.
Begin to let your stories tell themselves.
Find a storytelling buddy.
Let your stories out, follow them, discover where they lead you and let them have their voice.
We will be waiting.
