The Power of Story
To put it simply great stories have huge impact. We as human beings need stories in order to make sense out of life. Stories inspire us, teach us, bring laughter and joy. They makes us question things, cry, or angry. Stories pull on our heartstrings.
A great story can be found everywhere. The greatest songs are usually some form of narrative story…just think about The Beatles Eleanor Rigby, Michael Jacksons Smooth Criminal, or The Temptations My Girl. The film industry is comprised of nothing but stories from narrative action flicks, to documentaries.
Even going back further to the original source of entertainment books have been full of meaning full stories that stimulate our human souls. Great examples…Grimms Fairy Tells and the Bible or Quran.
People love and believe in stories so much that they are willing to donate a million dollars in less than 24 hours to bring inspiring and educational stories to children around the world. If you are not sure what I am talking about Levar Burton reached his Kickstarter Goal of one million dollars to bring Reading Rainbow back to the forefront for kids around the world. They are now sitting at three million dollars, with 32 days left for their pledge period!
That is an amazing story within itself.
As you can see there is a lot of power in stories and we all have stories to share! If you are interested in bringing your story to life…let's talk!
