Tell a story and change a life
From birth, or even while in the womb, we’ve been listening to [and loving] stories. Our mothers, fathers, grandparents and other significant people in our lives have lovingly been reading books, and telling stories and tales to help us build our creative minds, learn about the world we live in, evoke emotion, and become well-rounded individuals. Yes, tell a story and change a life.
Storytelling isn’t just for children’s books or grandparents reliving their good old days, “walking every day to school in the snow – uphill, both ways”. Storytelling has a very important place in the blog posts you regularly share.
Let’s take a quick look at 3 reasons why you should blog to tell a story:
- Changes Behavior: Often, people are looking for ways to change a certain behavior or habit that they feel isn’t beneficial to them anymore. They want to lose weight, stop smoking, become more confident, control their anger, increase their online visibility and a host of other situations. When you tell a story about your own journey you offer the reader authenticity because you’ve traveled down that road. Or maybe you’re sharing a story about how you helped a client overcome an obstacle in their life or business…the reader is now able to see his own challenge. They can relate and they feel that you understand their pain.
- Moves us Emotionally: That’s a powerful thing to do. Anytime you can stir up the emotions inside of someone – good or bad – you’re going to get noticed. Whether you own a controversial political blog or a blog for parents who have lost a child, through your storytelling, you have the power to move people into responding, taking a stand, and make decisions.
- Persuades Readers to Take Action: When you’re able to change someone’s behavior and move them emotionally with your words, you drive them to take action. Did you write about how you overcame depression? Are you sharing how you went from living paycheck-to-paycheck – to making a 6-figure income? If your story is powerful enough, and readers can relate to you, you can get people to take action.
