How to Put Your Story On Repeat

I was chatting with the women in my community recently, answering their questions around sharing their story — and this one came up and I thought it was such a good one, I wanted to address it here, too!

The question was how do you put your story on repeat without feeling like you are boring your audience?

I get asked this question a lot. Women feel uncomfortable sharing their story over and over again for fear they will turn others away, bore them to death, or begin to feel like a narcissistic broken record.

First of all, let’s remember one thing: Not everybody is listening. And even when they are listening, they are doing so in a very noisy world— in today’s digital age, information is coming at us at the speed of light and it’s hard as a consumer to wade through all the noise to find the solutions we are looking for to...

One of my best pieces of advice around learning to become a better storyteller is to study those who tell stories really well.

Studying how others tell stories, and evaluating how those stories make you feel will be a great indicator on if that style of storytelling suits you.

When you learn to evoke emotion and get your audience to feel something, you will get them to take action with their money.

Mining Stories from Rocks

 
I want to share some real life stories from a couple of the women in the LIGHTbeamers Community — which is our private group on FB.

Every week, I post a picture that is aimed to prompt them to tell their own story. You let the image spark ideas and creativity, mining a story the picture seems to tell.

Yesterday, I used this picture of a stack of rocks — the biggest of the rocks on the bottom and subsequent smaller rocks stacked on top, getting smaller as the pyramid went up. Each rock seemed to be perfectly balanced on the other — but delicately. The slightest shift of weight could make the whole ensemble come tumbling down.

One of the women in the Community shared these words — which blew me away:
In 2008 I hit rock bottom. I was mess physically, mentally, and emotionally. I wasn't sleeping, eating, my hair was falling out, I was having panic attacks, I was suicidal, and wetting the bed due to fear of him. I was living each day on eggshells. I was...

Your Story is a Mountain

 

Listen to our daily blog-casts on Amazon. Enable our "What's Your Story" daily flash briefing and listen using your Alexa device!

I want you to imagine a Mountain. Really picture in your head the landscape of this mountain, and imagine what it might look like if you were looking at this mountain from afar…. you’d see the base, the peak, then the other side.

This mountain is an image I use in all of my storytelling classes to help people understand their own story, and how to craft their message in a powerful way.

This applies to all great storytelling — for businesses, for people, for analysis of politics — everything.

Here’s how this mountain relates to storytelling: What makes up a great story is the element of transformation. When people tell stories without this ingredient, the stories fall flat and are very boring. Think of a movie script — can you imagine watching a movie without experiencing the buildup to the climax? It would be a...

What Will Others Think?

 

Listen to our daily blog-casts on Amazon. Enable our "What's Your Story" daily flash briefing and listen using your Alexa device!

I’ve been thinking a lot about how much people STOP themselves from doing things that are stirring in their heart.

They stay quiet & hidden for fear of judgement from others. That simple question or thought — what will others think — can be so damaging and toxic if you let it stop you from moving forward in life or business.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The people who are ahead of you, those who are making waves and playing big, aren’t going to judge you!

Nope! They’ll see you and say, “You go girl! I know what it takes to get here and you are being so bold & brave! I commend you. Here’s my hand. Grab it! I’ll pull you along.”

So the judgement you fear is about the people behind you; the ones NOT stepping up their own life in new & exciting ways but rather playing small and sitting...
