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.

I have a storytelling tip that’s so simple, you’ll be shocked when you hear it — yet I’m going to guess many of you are not using it.

If you start to sprinkle it into with your story — you will inherently draw more people in closer to you and get them to start seeing themselves in your story.

The question is ….. “Has this ever happened to you?” — or another iteration of it is ….. “Have you ever felt this way?”

Asking your audience directly if a part of your story is something they’ve experienced too is so powerful because what we experience we remember….. and asking them if...
