The Power of Story Telling

The power of storytelling is almost beyond words.  On the other hand, since this is an educational video about the power of storytelling, I should try to find the words.  Perhaps I can find the words in the stories I have heard.

In grade school I learned that before man had the means to write he told stories.  The history and knowledge of man was passed down from one generation to the next.   And then about five thousand years ago the Sumerians are believed to be the first to put language, the spoken word, into writing.

What followed were scrolls and finally books. But about 1450AD Johannes Gutenberg invented the Gutenberg press.  His invention made printing of books possible in mass quantities thus enabling the stories previously told or transcribed by hand to be printed for the educated and rich to read.

Today, we publish about a million new books every year and have the internet with more than 634 million websites posted.  In 2012 it was estimated that 144 billion emails were sent on the average day.

Think of an email as a short story. Story telling is bigger than ever even with all our modern technology.

 

Here is my question to you.  Are you telling your story? Your story could be worth millions of dollars.

J.K. Rowling, banked a jaw-dropping $300 million over the course of one year. I want to focus on writing a bestselling novel, I want to focus on you and your story.

Brendon Bruchard turned the story of his involvement in an auto accident into a multimillion dollar business. One of my favorite story tellers is Nicholas Vujicic (Voy Chich). A preacher/motivational speaker with tetra-amelia syndrome. He was born with no limbs – no arms, no legs.

Then there is Joni Errickson-Tada who tells her story from a wheel chair about how she learned to be an artist painting with the paintbrush between her teeth.

What is your story?  Are you telling it is such a way that people want to listen to what you have to say?

Let’s go back to Brendon Bruchard for a moment.  Lots of people have had car accidents, but not many have turned it into a $million dollar business.  I believe the difference is in reaction. Brendon tells how he survived the accident and his thoughts immediately after the crash as he stood on the hood of the car looking up at a full moon while his blood was pooling at his feet and asked three questions.

  1. Have I lived?
  2. Have I loved?
  3. Have I Mattered?
