Do you love to listen to a story?Most people do.Lately, some management gurus are promoting the usage of story telling in corporate and business environments.About six years ago ,I wrote this note.Please read it to give you the background and the power of the stories either in selling your products,services or ideas.There are a lot of stories in the Holy Qur'an so that we muslims can take some lessons from the past.
Two years ago I took up cycling and blogged about it here.To my pleasant suprises,a few people who have hung their bicycles are going back to cycling after they read my stories.I did not talk about the mechanics of cycling but more about the joys and fun I had with my friends and some benefits I gained from cycling.Similarly ,it went the same way with my 'walking stories'.They are nothing great, but these short notes touched some peoples' hearts out there.
Personally,I love to read story books and watch movies.These are all stories in different media.
Fast backwards to my childhood days,I loved to listen to my grandma who was a great story teller.Now,I realised that our old folks were using them to convey good messages/lessons in some entertaining ways.
That is the power of the the story!
