Hot Tip to Help You Become a Better Storyteller

January 13, 2008

Every dream has a story. Like good movies, every night our dreams offer us ‘drama therapy’ by conveying powerful stories that serve as transformative experiences of change and renewal.

To hone your storytelling abilities, write a simple story line for each dream by answering the following questions:

1. What is your dream about in one sentence?

2. What is the tone or theme of your dream-story?

3. What is the core message in your dream?

4. What emotional feeling are you left with at the end?

You will notice that some of the best CEOs, entrepreneurs, sales executives, artists, producers, and writers are exceptional storytellers. By getting into the habit of journaling your dreams everyday and writing a simple story line, you will naturally become a better storyteller.
