Everyone Loves a Good Story


It never fails, whenever I begin a story, people listen.

I’ve done a lot of public speaking — large groups, small groups, children, teens, adults, the elderly, different ethic groups, people with beliefs different than mine — it doesn’t matter, people love a story.

Whenever I feel like I’m losing an audience, or when the audience is so diverse I know it is nearly impossible to communicate with them all, I turn to a story and I’ve got ’em.

What is it about stories that makes them so attractive to people? On the other side of the coin, what does the love of stories tell us about human nature?

Over the next few days I’ll be blogging on this subject. Come on back and let’s talk about it.
