The Power Of
Your Story

The Power Of
Your Story

Stories Matter

They transcend time & culture

They connect people

They create magical moments

They can empower you and others

And they can end your hopes and dreams

Stories are told to educate and entertain; they have been used to pass on wisdom for centuries

Whether the story is for professional reasons to help your clients with a product or service or a personal story of pain to pleasure to inspire others – it is a medium that is familiar to all

Who is missing out because your story is still untold?

tell your own story

Stories Matter – Your Story

Who is missing out because your story is still untold?

Maybe the story you tell yourself is holding you back from sharing

  • Who would want to listen to my story
  • Who am I to think I could help anyone else
  • What if people judge me?
  • What if people see me as vulnerable

All these questions are based upon a belief formed by life experiences. The good news is that whilst you can’t change the past itself,  you can change the meaning you attach to the events in that past.

Now is the time to take a step into the future and away from the story of the past

Steve Jobs quote

Stories Matter – Your Story

You have a great business with a product or service that can really help others.  That’s great!  So why isn’t anyone buying?

When you share your ideas, does your passion comes thorough, and you find you can talk about your business for hours?

Well, maybe that’s the problem! Here’s the bottom line – no one is interested in what you have unless it can help them to move from pain to pleasure!

Think about Steve Jobs.  He didn’t talk about all the technical parts of the ipod – he painted a picture of 1,000 songs in your pocket.

Information tells, story sells.

The story of how your product or service will make me feel and the story of why you do it.  That’s what sells ….the shared vision ♥️
