The smartest move can be to shut up

Sometimes we all say too much or even too little.

Remember that argument with a loved one or a debate with a co-worker, where you wish you had just kept your mouth shut and thought about the words coming out of your mouth? We’ve all been there.

The most powerful thing you can do in these situations is to remain silent and listen, like really listen. Think about your response, the words you use, it’s within you’re reasoned choice to decide how you act and what you say – never forget that.

The secret to being a great storyteller

We all use a number of platforms to share our stories with the world, some do this as a form of therapy and others in the hope to inspire. The reality is that not everyone will read our work or even like it, but that’s OK because maybe they aren’t the audience you want.

Create and don’t just consume

We consume a vast amount of information through multiple channels on a daily basis that give us ideas, motivation and support in problem solving.

Access to information is an amazing ability but have you thought about giving back and helping others like yourself too? The humans mind is built to solve problems and face challenges.

Make sure you’re creating too, feed that thirst to build and create something, anything to put out into the world.

Know your audience

Being a storyteller is an important component to expressing your ideas and gaining support.

Develop the skill of building an engaging narrative to bring your audience on a journey and most importantly, identify how to communicate with different audiences.

In developing your communications and engagement plans, you must know the audience you’re speaking with. How do they digest information? Do they respond better to simple language or a bit more detail? Are they visual or prefer a more intimate style?

Success in getting audiences to buy into your ideas is by knowing them, knowing how to engage and tell your story in a way they understand.

Anything less is selling yourself and them short.
