IS #STORYPOWER A TOOL FOR INCEPTION by J Loren Norris
“Your story is not just your story, because life doesn't happen in a vacuum. What you felt is not what everyone felt. Beware the impact your story carries.” J Loren Norris
Use of word pictures presumes and relies on the idea that every hearer of your word picture shares the same emotional engagement with the scene as teller of the story.
Remember, the deer and the hunter lived the same story. They certainly experienced it differently and carried away different emotions... if any at all. The victim and the perpetrator do not tell the same story, from the same encounter.
To presume you are “recreating a moment” where every hearer will experience the same emotions you did when you lived it, is to assume you know the past and present emotional state of everyone who is hearing you.
Beware when telling stories, the emotions you can conjure, evoke or invoke are a powerful tool. They can be used for great good, or great evil. They can be used this way outside the scope of intent, if they are outside the scope o awareness.
Before you take that risk, GET A STORY CRAFTING COACH! You have no idea the damage you can cause to your hearers well being, your effectiveness or your long term reputation.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
