Learning how to tell stories is crucial in terms of communication. Great storytellers are heard, while bad storytellers are ignored. Our goal is to make storytelling effortless. In order to make it effortless, it's smart to embody storytelling. In this talk, I share how to make storytelling second nature so you don't have to use too many cognitive powers. Instead of thinking too much, you will learn the art of flowing. For more tips to control your mind and communicate with power, be sure to check out the Level Up Mentality Book!

The human experience is really just one long ongoing story and climate change is just another chapter, but if we want to get to the second edition of this book, we must begin to focus on real stories and not just fanciful and misleading tales that are taking us straight to hell. Professor Peter Stott and his co-founder of Climate Stories, Pierrette Thomet, are acutely aware of the power of stories to help pilot us on this troublesome journey and so have created a project that provides a rich understanding of who and what we are and where we fit in this sometimes confusing array of never-ending tales. Other Quick Climate Links are: "Climate deal hangs in balance as world leaders look to soften targets"; "When Tishiko went home, she found exposed burial sites and empty fishing grounds. Now she's going to Glasgow"; "The Trump-loving, climate-sceptic island sinking into the sea"; "COP that! We'll pay for PM to woo global investors to our green future"; "The COP26 Climate Talks Are Opening. Here's What to Expect"; "Crimes Against Nature: $2m whales, wartime Britain and the economics of saving the planet"; "Activists want South Korea to do more to Fight Climate Crisis"; "I'm at the global climate summit in Glasgow COP26 on behalf of The Australian Greens"; "Climate Chaos Helped Spark the French Revolution—and Holds a Dire Warning for Today"; "How Climate Change May Be Contributing to Our Political Instability".

Air Date 10/21/2020 Today we take a look at some of the many zany foreign misadventures the United States has had over the past 100 years. And by "zany misadventures" I mean the naked pursuit of capitalism at any cost, the support of military coups and other undemocratic overthrows of foreign governments and wars for oil and resources in an unabashed attempt to keep America wealthy and the rest of the world less so - all while maintaining an anti-imperial, pro-democracy, pro-freedom, live-and-let-live poker face.

Patricio was 16 when he decided he wanted to be a writer. It was when he read The Leaf Storm by Gabriel Garcia Marquez that Patricio understood his calling.But like many others, life took a scene route into the film before switching his major to fiction.“What is a novel but a point of view?” - Joan Didion.Maya's first published novel, Reggaeton Cruise, was inspired by a man Patricio knew who was a short-lived, and unexpected, YouTube sensation, when a video he made went viral.Patricio knew he wanted to use this story as the basis of a story but he didn't know how. It wasn't until, a number of years later, when he met someone else who was a war refugee who shared parts of his life story. It was at this point Reggaeton Cruise started to form.It is almost a series of interconnected short stories, Patricio says. Each of the characters slowly but surely makes their way towards a cruise ship where their stories intersect.One of the themes of the book is globalisation. To illustrate just how diverse we are, Maya wanted to incorporate a large cast of characters who all come from disparate home countries.In cities, particularly, we have to set aside a little of our own culture and background in order to fit in with those around us. When we all speak different languages and come from different backgrounds, popular culture becomes the common currency.As a dual Spanish and English speaker, Patricio shares how his work changes depending on what language he's speaking in. He's noticed his tone changes when he uses English because it's not his first language.He says he's naturally drawn to write poetry in Spanish, enjoying the language's rhythms and cadences. He prefers English for long form fiction.“The heart is a lonely hunter” - Carson McCullersWe talk about how Patrico balances his time between teaching and writing. But he says he doesn't have any clear division between the two. He's always thinking about his work. And his work is influenced by the teaching he does.Instead, he says the division he makes is between his creative life and keeping physically fit is very important to him. It gives him the right mental balance so that he feels good when he sits down to write.Creativity and physical health go hand in hand.Currently, Patricio is working on a Spanish novella.Contact with Patricio:Reggaetón Cruise - https://amzn.to/3tFyviAInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/elpatocuervo/Website - Reggaetón Cruise by Patricio X.

We all love a good story, don't we? It seems that Jesus did as well. In Matthew 13, Jesus tells seven short stories or parables and after the first, the disciples ask Him, "Why do you speak in parables?" Jesus' reply indicates that stories are far older, stretching back across the centuries to the great prophet Isaiah. This Sunday we hear the surprising explanation of the purpose of the parables and their effect on the hearers. Do you have ears to hear?
After learning I wrote a book, my nephew said he wanted to write one, too. That melted me so of course, I had to have him do the opening to this episode! I don't have kids but they‘ve always been close to my heart. Several years ago I went on a partner trip with Rob Morris of Love146, an organization that helps children rescued from trafficking. Rob is an incredible storyteller and he uses this skill to literally change lives. There are some incredible insights in this interview, and I hope you'll listen with an open mind and heart. To support Love 146: love146.org Through my career, the only times I've ever truly wished for a bigger platform were times I wish I had more money or influence to help causes like Love146. The internet marketing / personal development / coaching space can do a lot better than wax poetic about 7-figure launches, “epic” masterminds, and speaking in front of big crowds. I'm all for entrepreneurs enjoying their success but I would also posit to my colleagues to consider using our platforms to help real world causes that go beyond our bank accounts and lifestyle business. Then maybe we can inspire more kids to write their own books, no matter where they're from. Yes? Get Your Copy of You Are the Brand Today!

It's not often you get to see through the eyes of someone who created a product that you and hundreds of millions of other people use, hundreds of times a day, every single day, and have for a decade or more. Tony Fadell is the legendary inventor of the iPod, co-inventor with Steve Jobs of the iPhone, and Founder of Nest. Now he is the Principal at Future Shape, an investment and advisory firm coaching over 200+ startups. There's almost an infinity of things to learn from Tony, but what we most wanted to uncover are his product frameworks and first principles for design. How can Founders think about designing products that are both high-utility and beloved -- that achieve dent-in-the-universe levels of adoption? As Tony puts it: For truly great designs, 50% of the design is the design. 50% of the design is the story behind the design. And it all begins with re-learning how to see.
Stories have the power to influence people and inspire massive change. But without compelling communication, important causes and businesses get ignored.

Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12 https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 Mark Scharenbroich is an Emmy award winner, best-selling author, and hall of fame keynote speaker. He is known for his authentic delivery, his talent for delivering unique stories, and his comedic timing. He's the author of Nice Bike: Making Meaningful Connections on The Road of Life. Notes: Nice Bike. It’s not a technique, it’s a genuine interest in others and the willingness to acknowledge the talents and accomplishments of everyone. The three parts to story-telling: Stories need to be unpredictable, they need to have a hook, and they have to have a cast of characters. While in college at St Cloud State, Mark toured high schools and colleges with a comedy troupe called Mom’s Apple Pie which helped him develop his comedic timing and ability to improv. While on a trip to Washington DC with his dad, Mark witnessed his dad walking up to a couple of Vietnam veterans and saying, "Thank ya fellas. Welcome home." The moment was unforgettable to Mark as he witnessed what it meant to be grateful for others and to connect with them. The "dark chocolate" that Mark's daughter gave to a struggling stranger at the airport. "We don't have to fix all the problems, but acknowledge others, see them, and try to connect with them." The CEO of Cargill said it's not a secret what leaders need to do: State where we're going State how we're going to get there Show that you have your team's back Show that you care about your team as people Leaders must always be in the trenches and learning... And work to create memorable experiences for the people they are leading How to give a great toast at a wedding or eulogy at a funeral? Remember it's not about you, it's about the bride and groom Be story-driven The power of three - "She's about faith, family, and friends" and then tell a short story about each of the three What Mark learned from a "meat raffle" You have to buy a ticket for a shot to win You must be present to win The same is true for leadership. You have to be engaged and take the chance to do it. You must be present with your team. Be a "day-maker." Instead of just being a barber or a stylist, work to make your client's day by giving them an amazing haircut. BWCA - Leave the area better than you found it... A great rule for life. Core values - "When your core values are clear, decisions are easier." Comparison - Compare yourself to your previous self. Be grateful for what you have. Someone else will always have more crayons. Focus on your crayons. Advice to those who think they aren't creative. You are... You have to find the stories. Focus on four columns People you've had experiences with Experiences you've had Lessons learned Application to the lives of others Roberta Jordan: "It's more important to be interested than interesting." Life advice -- "Leave a tip for the staff who cleans your hotel room."
What are the downsides to the way we tell stories? Do we need to re-imagine the craft of writing and the way it’s taught? Matthew Salesses--English professor and bestselling author of The Hundred-Year Flood and The PEN/Faulkner finalist, Disappear Doppelgänger Disappear--takes on these questions in his new national bestseller, Craft in the Real World: Rethinking Fiction Writing and Workshopping. Matthew discusses with Eve and Julie how the format of traditional writing workshops was defined by straight, white, able, cis men; how greater diversity in workshops today necessitates a more mindful and empowered approach to the teaching of writing; and how we, as readers and writers, can break free of the oppressive cycles of privileged assumptions and expectations.
