Success PILL: Develop Storytelling Skills


Our "Manifesto for Success" Series: #4 - Storytelling

The Success PILL of Storytelling

One of the common traits I notice in great people is that they often tell very good stories! I call this the 'SUCCESS PILL' of storytelling.

Their personal stories are gripping, and can bring a tear to your eye, even if you have heard the stories before. How's that for engagement? Pulling power? Brainwashing? Whatever terminology you use, the truth is ... it works!

Storytelling is as old as the hills and as popular, before the Internet debuted, that is. Some does it better than others. Take Kurek Ashley, when he recounts the helicopter disaster, you can almost hear the tears in his voice, and it never fails to move the audience even if they have heard his story before.  Then there is T. Harv Eker who is a very successful, peak performance coach. He packs a punch with his stories and brings the crowds to intense engagement at his events. At certain points in his stories, you can hear and FEEL his pain... from all those years ago...

in particular have even greater significance as glory and prosperity symbols.


WHAT makes a great story

 

The common thread that runs in great stories is how the 'underdog' gets his 'break' (of his own doing!) to overcome unimaginable, insurmountable odds to achieve astounding success that can only be described as ... extraordinary. People just love this kind of stories - everyone likes a winner, and most people like to see the underdog FINALLY gets his 'day', and / or to see Good triumphing over Evil. This is why movies like 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'Lord of the Rings', Harry Potter and countless other fantastic stories - books and movies - are so popular.

Btw, J R R Tolkien has become so popular since Peter Jackson immortalised 'Lord of the Rings' and now the Hobbits, that Tolkien classes in Marquette University, Milwaukee, are running at full capacity?


  HOW do you make a great story?

 

Great stories INSPIRE because the distance between the plight of the hero or heroine and the end-result is simply Inter-Galactic and just impossible to envision let alone comprehend in many people's own Belief and Storytelling systems!

One way to create a story that will inspire is to begin by setting a GOAL, not just any goal, but a goal so extraordinary that even you will gasp at your own audacity to envision, let alone encourage, such dreams!

At a recent event in Melbourne, Tony Robbins came on stage after the audience had all written down their next, annual, financial goal in a prior session. He told them to revise their (think big) goals and increase it by ... ten times. Well, people looked down at their revised, profit goals and then ... gasped at their figures!
 
Planting the seed for greatness (Success - "It's all in the state of mind...." 
from 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill).

DARE TO DREAM!!

Then he proceeded to tell us the story of the 'Flying Nun'. It was truly inspirational!
This is the story of a tiny nun, in her senior years, who entered a triathlon race which ended in tragedy because she was blown off her bike by very strong winds and had to pull out of the race because of serious injuries sustained from the accident caused by the storm. This resulted in her being banned in a subsequent race (out of concern for her safety based on age) but through sheer persistence, fortitude and the immense goals she set herself, and against all odds, she achieved what would have been impossible for most young people, let alone someone her age.

That was what he was trying to illustrate when Tony advised to set incredible goals, so that when you achieve them, your results are stupefyingly astounding, the kind of story that will truly blow people away ... especially ... skeptics!!

If you get the chance, grab the OPPORTUNITY to see Tony Robbins in person!




What's your story? Was it sleeping on newspapers when you arrived as a penniless immigrant who could hardly speak English, living in your car because you're dead-broke with nowhere to go, fighting all your life to get your father's approval, starting up your Internet business in your spare bedroom as a mumpreneur-wannabe while everyone tells you you're barking mad, faking to be a copywriter, on the brink of a financial apocalypse, being sacked 32 times from your jobs, being disowned by your own company that you founded and nurtured to success, writing your stories in cafes because you could not afford the heating at your tiny flat and then getting rejected by 12 publishers?...


TELL your own success story

 

Even though successful people are good at telling other people's stories (usually people that they know well), the best stories they tell are by far their personal ones, where they can describe every emotion from hope, sorrow, disappointment, joy, pain, embarrassment, hopelessness, depression to despair, and more ... every nuance of feeling is candidly revealed. Perhaps it's the deep insights and vulnerability they reveal and share that make them resonate with and appeal to their audience. Not only are they good storytellers, they also have a GREAT personal story to tell.

So what's your story? If you haven't yet written your story perhaps it's time to get started? Begin today and remember to fill it with big dreams, goals and RESULTS.


Success PILL formula



Craft your success story. Make it riveting, if you wish to grip your audience.
Then TELL it - tell it like it is. With your honest emotions and insights.

When you tell it like it is, it's reality journalism at its most beguiling. 


Incredible goals, incredible results, incredible success, incredible STORIES!


TIP: Blog about your journey - use www.blogger.com if you have not started a blog yet. Even if each instalment or chapter is not quite finished, post and re-edit it as many times as you need or add to it as you gain new insights for that 'chapter'. Many famous writers including J R R Tolkien re-edit their stories many times during the writing process.

And when you finish your chapters, did you know that with blogger.com you can convert your entire blog into an ebook with just one click? Imagine what you could do with that... next...

TIP: Remember to take photos of your life BEFORE (Dog's Life Dagshots) and AFTER (Victory, Smug Mugshots :) achieving your goals and SUCCESS so that you will have equally great illustrations to embellish your compelling Rags-to-Riches story should you decide to publish your very own, success story, in the future!

Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action

Ted talk: "Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?"

Mind Secrets Exposed 2.0 Review

The Art and Science of Getting What You Want: 

The human mind is an amazing machine and is capable of some miraculous feats that confuse the most learned scientist. We know little of the mind, except that it is powerful and we don’t tap into its full potential. 

There are plenty of people who are interested in uncovering the truth about the mind and utilizing its full power. There are a corresponding number of self-help books available on the Internet that claim to allow access to these hidden depths – but most of them fail to deliver on their promise.

But here comes Greg Frost and his latest book, Mind Secrets Exposed. This book is a great tool for anyone who wants to enhance their mind and the quality of their life and the best part is that this book works. Mind Secrets Exposed is filled with comprehensive information on how the mind works and how one can tap into its potential.

The Secret of Getting Rich


The Secret To Getting Rich
(That the Rich Already Know But Do You?)



The Secret to Getting Rich:  Check out the Power of Compounding when you Invest and how it Multiplies your Money. This is a compelling message yet explained in an interesting and easy-to -understand, video format from those who understand the Magic of Compounding.

The average American can expect to live to 86-92 years of age today ... see how we have doubled the life expectancy in the last 100 years, so the question is not whether you are going to live longer but how are you going to support yourself in your old age for the next few decades?! You cannot expect handouts from your government (they are broke!) so you have to take responsibility for your own family's financial wellbeing. 

No matter how modest the sum you put away, you must start now if not already especially if you do not have youth on your side.  If you are very young then you are lucky for you have more time on your side and together with compounding interest/return you can turn your savings into a colossal amount especially towards the latter part of your investment timeframe when you reach that explosive phase ...

Even a very modest amount saved regularly has the power to turn into millions given time (decades) and allowed to grow and compound constantly (like the story of the Janitor who became a millionaire ... on his janitor's wages. I myself know people who have 7-figure fortunes from very basic salaried jobs but they have been investing long term and have habitually compounded their investments without fail).

It is up to you to make ALL your money work for you, ALL the time, and not to allow it to get lazy ... the rich understand this and do not allow their money to get idle! So develop a money mindset now and find out how you too can begin or catch up with the rich, if you haven't started on your path to long term wealth yet. One thing is for sure, you cannot rely on the old methods or handouts when planning for your security because the world has changed hugely since 2008 ... so:

  • DECIDE now that you want to increase your WEALTH
  • Then take ACTION
  • CONSISTENT Action at that
  • But first, watch the VIDEO.

To your wealth and success!

Forex: Double Your Money In 30 Days Video Report

video

Click here to read more about FapTurbo!

The Case For Forex Trading Online & Using Forex Trading Robots (FapTurbo):

Asset Allocation: One aspect of financial planning that has stayed with me since the day it was introduced to me is the concept of asset allocation, and in tandem with that it also makes good sense to incorporate income diversification to derive income streams from different sources as much as possible.

With interest rates so low* since the GFC of 2008 and job creation at record low levels** it makes it much more challenging to increase and or diversify income streams within one's investing strategies easily and without expending and risking substantial time and resources. 

This is where forex trading online or currency trading can be a viable option. Forex trading requires very little to set up, especially if using forex robots trading system such as FapTurbo. The great thing about forex trading is that you only require a computer (or a smartphone) with Internet broadband, a forex broker to start up and some seed money to get started.  

You can do online forex trading at any time of the day as forex markets are open 24/7 for almost 7 days a week.You can have all the advantages associated with a home business, such as work from home in the comfort of your home, save time commuting, reduce or avoid the stress brought on by demanding bosses or colleagues, save on not having to purchase business clothes or lunches, and last but not least be available to your family especially if you have a young and growing family that you wish to spend more time with and if not missing their important milestones is a priority with you.

You further save time if you use forex trading robots ... as charting and gaining experience from the markets to become a great trader requires more time and can be a steeper learning curve for some people than for others if you trade manually by yourself.There is also the advantage of dealing with only a few major currency pairs, unlike the scores of equities stock if you are trading in equities. Currently forex markets are very volatile making it easier to make money whether a currency is going up or down as compared to a very stable and predictable market. In fact as any seasoned forex trader will tell you, you can make MORE money by shorting a currency when it is falling! 

The advantage of using a forex robot system is that it takes the guess-work and emotional aspects out of your trading strategy which can interfere with being objective and rational when trading. Too often it is human nature to tamper with established stop losses, overlook important control checklists (established to safeguard and minimise the risks of your trades - if you don't have one you need to establish one soon!), and other risk-reducing measures (set up in the first place to protect the trader!), etc. when emotions whether fear or greed, get in the way with rational decision-making.

Fortunately Forex Robots do not have this flaw as their objective algorithms were meant to take the guesswork out of forex trading and at the same time optimise your forex trading returns consistently (always 'cool' under pressure which is more than can be said for many human traders especially those who follow the herd instinct and can often be highly reactionary to a high or low level VIX!).

You can always start forex-trading part-time at the level you are most comfortable with then migrate to full-time when you are ready if you find yourself making more income from this than your day job and if you enjoy being able to make money online, with the click of a mouse! Whichever option you choose you can get more information by going HERE!

Enter the Dragon: Chinese (Lunar) New Year 2012

video

2012 is the Year of the Dragon, according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar and officially begins on the 23rd of January 2012 and lasts for 15 days. The first and last days are especially important according to Chinese tradition. The Dragon year comes once every 12 years and is especially favoured in the Orient as it represents one of the most auspicious signs in the Chinese zodidac.  It denotes Wealth, Prosperity, Happiness, Luck and Success, both in the business and personal arenas.  Dragon years normally see a spike in birth rates as families believe babies born in such years are especially lucky for the family/ dynasty.

When you combine Chinese with Western Astrology the mix is especially potent. You can find out what your Birth (natal) Astrology/ Horoscope Charts say here (in detail rather than the daily stuff you see all over the Net.)  Also Check Out the Astrology For Lovers Compatibility / Relationship Reports - see if Your Date or Heart's Desire is compatible with you.

Apart from the great information and insights into which Signs will be compatible with you, plus MORE ... you could use this as an ice-breaker when you are dating and meeting new men or women ... it's fun and uncannily accurate and your dates will warm up to your ability to entertain them with less serious stuff (unlike business or work topics!) and besides, women who are usually more in-tune with the Cosmos will find something to admire in men who are into these hobbies, viz. that new-age, sensitive guy that women are SO looking for today.
