Stories are important to convey our messages, but why stories? Because it gives us some space. No one complains, no one judges you and no one scolds you for stories. Rather stories can inspire you to do some good. It can connect people heart to heart. Give some good feeling. You might have seen many prominent leaders telling their stories as it is a strong medium of conveying their messages. Stories are another way of communication. Here we are talking about personal stories. Stories are also useful for teaching more complex ideas, such as the importance of sharing, the passage of time, compassion for others. They can be useful when trying to explain traumatic events, such as family break-ups and bereavement. Stories help to develop imagination by introducing new ideas into our world – ideas about fantastical worlds, other planets, different points in time and invented characters. It’ll encourage the children to realize that they can, and should, imagine anything they want. The beauty of stories is that they can be super realistic or incredibly fantastical.
Why stories are powerful? While reading or listening stories brain think of picture and images. It bring sensation. Brain is hardwired to remember stories. Everyone can't tell good stories. Find your stories. Aspire for what your dreams are.
