The story is what conncts emotionally

Walt Disney Keynote speakers
Up close and personal you can notice details otherwise undiscoverable.

The story is what connects emotionally.

The facts connect intellectually.

A personal, and meaningful story can go straight to the heart.

The heart is where commitment lives and flourishes.

Think about the intentionality required to carry a teddy bear, a bead jar, and a Disney Goofy hat to Kuwait to give an 18-minute speech.

Slow and steadily build your foundation for over-focusing on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Learn to be intentional where you used to be less intentional.

Connect like you mean it

Jody’s Twitter bio: Former Park Ranger who has become the happiest podcaster on earth.

 

This is a copy and paste snippet from an email distribution software i just purchased on a recommendation from my future Podcast Host Jody Maberry. The software employee gives tips on how to build your processes and how to be more effective with what you build.

It’s like a dinner party conversation. Two people are talking and your friend says, “Hey did you hear Bill has a blog?”.

“No, what’s it about?” the person responds.

If your friend gives a general answer, it won’t be very compelling to the new person.

If it’s specific, you have a chance. The topic will either resonate or it won’t. If it does, you may have found a fan for life.

Ok, back to my voice…

Too generic and your flavor sounds like plain vanilla. Vanilla isn’t inherently bad, but it’s available everywhere and everyone is selling it.

The right kind of specific and you have a flavor that sounds amazing to the right person.

Out of 100 people who know about your new flavor, if five are crazy about it (and 95 don’t care), you have something valuable.

The goal is the smallest viable audience.

Who Needs This?

“Who needs this”?, is stereotypically said in a sarcastic tone, and maybe even with our arms thrown up in the air is frustration.  Can you picture it?

But that’s not what I mean here.  Not today ever.

Today, in these tough economic times, these extraordinarily turbulent world times, we need this.

We need leaders.

Not managers.  Well, we need managers, but not as much as we desire leaders.

We need someone with passion to make a difference.

Most humans are hard-wired to do good – to make a difference.  But most are hard-wired, also, to fear.  Fear keeps good people, who want to make a difference, in the shadows, where it’s safe.

We don’t need any more people in the shadows.  it’s too crowded there. We need people to go out in the sun, and lead the others who want to make a difference, but have no one to follow.
