After reading this blog post and hearing a "story" from my wife, I had an ah-ha moment that I wanted to share. This morning my wife shared a dream of hers where she was dreaming about having a conversation with someone about not being able to breathe. When she awakened, she found that her face was covered with a blanket. And it dawned on me that this is our subconscious communicating with us with a story!

I have read many books about communicating and presenting that focus on the “story.” With all the examples presented in books about the power of the “story,” I’ve never heard anything about dreams as “stories” from our subconscious that effectively communicate with us. What do you think? Is this a good example of the power of storytelling? That we are so wired to want stories that even our subconscious uses them!

Another great post! The reality is that we are are all story-tellers, and when we become totally transactional we become uninteresting and forgettable.

Keep up the fantastic work!

Leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Winston Churchill, and Sukarno are notable examples of effective orators who used oratory to have a significant impact on society. The speeches of politicians are often widely analyzed by both their supporters and detractors.
