The Seven Elements to a Great Story
This “Demystifying Leadership” note is a beefy one! You may wish to bookmark it.
I explain more in a 3 min video here what you want to focus on as YOU uplift and accelerate your life!
Why is this “beefy” and so important to bookmark?
First of all, there are always many different ways to slice and dice a topic. For leadership then, we can look at any number of theories and models to apply, all of which have their positive and negative attributes. And, depending on the time and place, theories come and go, rise and fall, and new ones rise up to take their place. The Inevitable You® Coaching System has always been deeper than today’s current theories. It goes to the very structure that supports a theoretical construct, thus, it supports MANY theories, and it remains constant in its intent – it gives you a structure to review any theory!
One of the most important constructs, especially in a day and age where we can not only look to the current fascination and attraction to Hollywood and high budget movies, would also explain previous “entertainment” and storytelling through the ages, would it not? Thus, we arrive at the 7 Basic Elements to Telling a Story! This would apply to not only Literature 101 or Hollywood movies, it would also apply to how you have been taught to tell YOUR story (or, choose to tell it anyway you want!)
Each one of the 7 Elements are essential to what you believe about your life (or business, or ANYTHING) to be true… or to be broken or limited… or how THAT limitation might in fact, be your greatest strength! Only YOU can tell this story. Only YOU can create the ending. Only YOU can declare a chapter over or a verse over or a villain conquered or even, how many times might that villain rise back like those goofy Hollywood endings! (Yet, it is NOT so goofy when it is an old vanquished villain that’s coming back for you, is it?!)
While the video is shy of 4 minutes, every element is key. Every element you either have well written and “performed” or, on the other hand, poorly supported or simply unable to hold up its end of the story. And then you DECLARE that is the story, that is the truth, and there is often nothing to be done past that point.
Yet, in ALL great movies and books and lore… the hero is defined by how she or he comes back from this very point of the story – how they rise to victory despite their shortcomings. In fact, the bigger then shortcoming, the bigger the legend is told!
It is time to ponder your story!
It is time to access better tools to write your legend!
