Ten Ways to Become a Captivating Storyteller By Mike Moore

People love to be told stories but are easily turned off when they are told poorly. Here are ten effective tips to make sure your stories are told well and captivate your listeners.

1. Be on the lookout for stories throughout your day. Stories are everywhere so carry a notepad with you and jot the story-line down in point form. Flesh it out later.

2. Know the story you are going to tell.

3. Keep it short, crisp and flowing.

4. Don’t be afraid to make it your own.

5. Tell the story don’t read it. Anyone can read a story not everyone can tell a story well.

6. Use your voice for dramatic effect.

7. Never let a story drag on and on.

8. Don’t get bogged down with detail.

9. Insert stories into general conversation whenever you get the chance. I heard the other day… I read in the paper recently about… I saw a man/woman in the coffee shop and….
These are just a few of the many ways to insert your story into conversation.

10. Never explain your story to your listeners. Let the story speak for itself.

Here are 30 FREE Life Lesson  stories from my extensive collection. Get to know them and start using them in your education as a storyteller.

New Song: Walking the World

By | music, Uncategorized | No Comments

This song was inspired by the fact that a lot of friends, family and cherished pets are passing on leaving us lost, alone and devastated. The melody has been echoing in my mind for some months and the words just came recently as I reflected on the brevity of life and the reality of death. I hope you like it and don’t find it too sad.

High Speed Cartooning for Fun and Profit

Learn the Art of Quick Cartoon Sketching

The one comment I frequently hear at my talks is this, “I wish I could
draw cartoons like that but I can’t even draw a straight line.” This is
nonsense. If you can draw a straight line, a circle, an oval and a
rectangle you can become a high speed cartoonist. I will show you
how in record time. Let’s get to it.

Six reasons speakers, consultants, trainers and teachers should
always draw cartoons in their presentations.
“Humor is like a rubber sword; it allows you to make a point without
drawing blood.” Mary Hirsch

1. They can get a point across quickly and clearly

2. They spark audience attention and interest. People love to see the
presenter actually draw to illustrate a point… but you’ve got to be
fast.

3. They can lighten up serious, heavy material

4. They promote audience recall of your content

5. Cartoons make your power point graphics come alive

6. They can direct and focus audience attention

There are two ways to draw and each depends on your comfort and confidence.

1. You can draw as you speak. This really impresses your audience but you have to be fast. You don’t want to lose your train of thought by taking too much time with your cartoons. You also don’t want to put your audience to sleep.

2. You can prepare the chart drawings before you begin your presentation. This would involve preparing your flip chart, overhead projector or power point drawings prior to your talk.
Let me teach you this fascinating art form in just six lessons.

Dear Friend

Do you know that we humans only achieve a tiny percentage of out enormous untapped human potential in our lifetime? Some say  it’s between 2 and 5 percent?

Can you image the possibilities that could be open to us if we even increased that  to 25%? We could literally transform our lives and our world.

There is one thing you must have in order to achieve your potential in life and make your dreams come true and that is SELF CONFIDENCE. ( I will show you how to get all you need in a few seconds.)

There is no doubt about it…self confidence is what enables me to speak in front of 3000 people and enjoy every minute of it without being fearful or intimidated.  I also have no difficulty accepting a very healthy fee when I’m finished.

Friends, when you have abundant self confidence things in all areas of your life get better and better.

You will be able to… 
*  attract terrific people,
*  earn more money
*  be comfortable in meetings and at parties
*  start your own business
*  be admired and respected
*  be likeable
*  be more convincing
*  be comfortable when speaking in public

It just goes on and on.

SELF CONFIDENCE is a gift that keeps on giving.

The sad fact is that so few people have abundant self confidence.

You’ve got to take the bull by the horns and make the required changes. And do it sooner than later.
MY OFFER TO YOU

I would like to offer you  my  seminar notes in the form of a SPECIAL REPORT entitled ” Unleash Your Potential” ( The Art Of Confident Living) to help you live more confidently and explode your hugely untapped human potential.

You owe it to yourself and those you love to become all that you can be.

Explode your human potential NOW!!!

True Story: In Heaven for Four Hours

By | Humour, laughter therapy, Self Help | No Comments

True Story…I WAS LITERALLY IN HEAVEN FOR FOUR HOURS.

I was Flying back from Edmonton Alberta after having spoken to the teachers of Yellowknife in Canada’s Northwest Territories.

My seat, as always, was in economy class which meant that I would sit there for four hours with my legs wrapped around my neck.

Just as I was trying to make myself as comfortable as possible before take-off, the curtain separating economy class from first class opened and a young buck in his early 20s approached me and said,” Hey Buddy,how would you like to fly to Toronto first class?” While I was a little bewildered at his offer my legs cried out to me, ” TAKE HIM UP ON IT…YOU FOOL!”

I quickly said , ” Sure thing, but why would you trade first class for economy?”

He bent low as if to whisper a secret in my ear that would threaten the safety of the free world if overheard. ” There is a cute chick going to be sitting in the seat beside you and I want to see if I can connect with her.”

Recalling my youth his offer took on a more reasonable tone so I quickly said, ” You’ve got a deal.”

There I was all the way back to Toronto with my legs stretched out in front of me, my own little table to hold my food and drink and a flight attendant fluffing my free pillow and asking if I were comfortable. every half hour or so. THERE IS A GOD!

I got off the plane first (as we in fist class always do) so I never did get a chance to thank him again or find out how he made out with the young woman. There are some mysteries we just have to live with. By the way, this has never happened again.
