How to Avoid Getting Old

” It’s OK to laugh at aging stereotypes as long as you DON”T BELIEVE THEM Mike Moore 

Do not grow old no matter
How long you live.
Never cease to stand like curious children
before the great Mystery into which we were born.  Albert Einstein

TRUE  STORY

After having given a lively speech on ” Going for the Gusto ” ( Living, to the Max, the Only Life You Have) I was approached by a young man named Marty who said that he wished his parents had been in the audience. It seems his parents, who had just turned 70 and were in good physical health, had given up on life and were just waiting to die.

” They really needed to hear your positive, uplifting message but I didn’t realize  the talk would be like this.”  We chatted for a few minutes and I gave him a Free copy of my book for his parents. I do hope they read it and have their life batteries recharged BIG TIME.

The tragedy is that there are far too many people like Marty’s parents in “God’s waiting room. “  What we need to do is empty God’s waiting room and fill up God’s Play Room.

Why Use Cartoons ???

1.  Not only do cartoons get your message across but they also get and maintain audience attention.

2.  Cartoons keep people on your page longer and direct their attention to a specific item or offer.  They are also great at creating a sense of urgency.

3. They make you and your message stand out and in a world where we are exposed to hundreds of bland messages daily standing out is important.

4. Cartoons are fun and people are attracted to what’s fun.

5. We were all raised on cartoons and  still find them captivating.

A True Story: Do You Need Help?

By | Humour, laughter therapy, Uncategorized | No Comments

Mike’s Mirthful Musings.

This actually happened to me a few years ago.

I had just finished giving a talk in St. Mary’s Ontario Canada and was carrying all my stuff to my van…guitar, boxes of books, briefcase etc. To my left a woman was getting into her car to drive home when she took pity on me and asked, ” Do you need help getting it on?” I must have had a shocked look on my face because she soon realized what she had asked. I replied,” So far in my life so good, but thanks for being concerned about my private life.”

We both stood there laughing. Humour is everywhere just look for the comedy in your chaos.

So I am starting a story telling page in this blog where you will find brief inspirational,motivational and funny stories from my extensive collection of over 700.

Here is the first of many. Feel free to use them for your purposes. Just give credit.

 

Leader or Follower? by Mike Moore

A father wanted to enroll his son in a popular private academy to ensure a quality education. He proceeded to complete the application and when he came to the question, ” Is your son a leader or a follower?” he immediately wrote down…A FOLLOWER.

The next day he sent the completed application by mail to the school officials.
Within one week the father received a phone call from the registrar saying that his son had been accepted.
When the happy father asked why his son had been accepted so quickly the registrar said, ” Out of the 100 applications we received your son was the only follower. The rest were leaders. This guaranteed him a position.

Just You Wait   (Attributed to Leo Buscaglia)    Theme:Positive Thinking

On my way home one day, I stopped to
watch a Little League base ball game that was being played in a
park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench on the first-
base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was
‘We’re behind 14 to nothing,’ he answered
With a smile.
‘Really,’ I said. ‘I have to say you
don’t look very discouraged.’
‘Discouraged?’, the boy asked with a
Puzzled look on his face…
‘Why should we be discouraged? We haven’t
Been up to bat yet.’

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 storyline 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.

Testimonial

Mike: I cannot say enough good things about your ” Magnetic Storytelling” audio.  Last week I implemented some of your suggestions in a three part series I gave.  Had people laughing and crying.  Yesterday, had the same thing happen.  What is most amazing was your advice about not pointing out what you want the audience to learn from your stories.  Both weekends, I have had people come up and tell me what they got out of my talk – they were getting things out that I hadn’t put in!
Thanks again – you’ve given me an extremely valuable tool that I hadn’t realized I was missing.  It has radically transformed my effectiveness!
God bless, Bob Fogarty
