Three steps to Maximize your Story, Part C

Tom was a financial planner who wanted to be the kind of person who could stop the casual communication in a room when he entered. He knew that if he could make that kind of impact with co-workers, he could make that kind of impact with clients. He also realized that the same skill of impact could be used at home to influence his teenage sons. And he did! The key to positioning to tell your story is having clarity around the purpose of your story.

Three steps to Maximize your Story, Part B

I attended a high-end two day event where a photographer was brought in to capture each person speaking. He asked us to share a funny story and of course, pretend he wasn’t there. One by one everyone shared a humorous story and my turn was next. I could feel the anxiety rising as I am a story-teller and couldn’t think of a funny story. …

As for me, I got to tell my funny story and the photographer got his shots. Stories are all around us. We just have to watch for them. The key to creating a great story is to observe the lessons that are learned through conflict. Every great story has conflict.

Three steps to Maximize your Story, Part A

I was challenged with my friend’s statement in his email when he said,

“I’m grateful for my health.  I’m grateful for my relationships with friends near & far.

But mostly, I’m grateful for every failure I’ve endured along the way.”

I stopped at that point to reflect on my life and ask myself, could I say, “I’m grateful for every failure I’ve endured along the way”? Could you say that?

How do you position yourself to find your story?

Here are two key ways:

The first is embracing and maintaining an attitude of gratitude.

The second is taking the time to journal experiences that impact your everyday life

The One Thing that will Keep You from Maximizing 2020

It’s easy to be grateful for the positive things in life but what about the things that don’t go so well. I received an email from a friend of mine that said,

“I’m going to let you in on a secret…
MONEY will return, your TIME won’t.
At this point in my life I’m rich in friendships and wealthy in happiness. Everything else, well that’s just icing on the cake.”

As I reflected on this, my next thought was, and OPPORTUNITY won’t return either.  We will have opportunities right in front of us, in plain sight, that we will miss and later regret or intentionally let them pass by if we are not alert, prepared or positioned. Positioning is best defined as, “What we do with one thing, we do with all things.”

The One thing that will keep you from maximizing your 2020 story is failing to Position yourself.

How to Simplify and Celebrate the Reason for the Season

How do you keep the real reason for the Christmas season in perspective?

If you could interview the most celebrated woman today to discover her secret to living a fulfilled life, what would you want to ask her?

Mary, the mother of Jesus, remains the most celebrated woman of all times. Although we are not able to personally interview her, we can find out Mary’s secret, the basis of her story, through several Biblical references. Two important principles reflected in her life are:

  1. The foundation of everything you do is based on who you are, your story
  2. Remain FOCUSED on what you believe, deep within your heart.

Enjoy the Christmas season.
