I am listing below some sources of stories:
- TV-soaps, movies, news, reality shows---
- Colleagues tell you of their stories
- Friends sharing with you their various encounters/events
- Bosses narrating you of your peers
- Your peers narrating you of your boss
- News paper
- Video games
The list can go on and on.
Why am I writing a post on stories?
It is because stories are the most powerful form of influence. Let me give you an experiment which you can try from this moment. Try to keep a count of the number of stories you encounter from different sources from this very moment to the time you retire to bed today. You will be amazed at the outcome.
Each of the stories you hear day in day out has tremendous influence on you. The influence works subconsciously. The stories you hear are shaping you either for good or bad. The only way to channel it to good is to do some kind of reflection and process the stories.
Think about it! What are the major stories that have influenced you to become the person you are right now?
Do share your experience in the comments.
