This is the final episode in the Get Connected–Stay Connected series, and Dr. Misner is doing it without a guest.
There are some great places to tell stories on BNI Connect.
When you edit your profile, under My Bio, you’ll find several topics like “My burning desire is to” and “Something that no one knows about me,” and “My keys to success.” There are a lot of places to tell your story in writing.
Here is Dr. Misner’s formula for storytelling. The most important suggestion is: re-live a story, don’t re-tell a story. The more you can engage in the emotion of the situation, the more impact it will have. Here are four points to remember.
- A story is a fact
- Wrapped in an emotion.
- It compels us to take action.
- It transforms us in some way.
For some good examples of stories, look at BNISuccessNet.com and look at “My BNI Story” and “I’m Connected.”
On BNI Connect itself, there’s a group called “Why BNI” which includes some great stories from BNI members.
The best place to find stories is your own experiences.
