Ep. 76: The 2 Keys to Unlocking Your Storytelling Potential
Well storytellers, we've finally reached the end of season 5 of The Storytelling Lab and what a phenomenal season it was! This season has been our most successful one yet thanks to our incredibly inspiring guests and YOU for consistently tuning in! On this episode of The Storytelling Lab, Rain tells us the story of his journey to becoming the storyteller he is today and how you can unlock your innate storytelling potential.
It's now the final episode of what has been the best season of The Storytelling Lab yet.
Coincidentally, it’s been one of the best years of my life. Which is ironic, since it’s been such a horrible year for the world in general. But this year I have become fully aligned with my purpose. And that feels exhilarating.
But it wasn’t always like that.
Years ago, after I finished the long and arduous task of financing, producing, directing, editing, and distributing my first feature documentary (Raise Up: The World is Our Gym), I was exhausted and lost.
I couldn’t start another project from scratch. I needed to align the skills I had learned with projects that lit my heart on fire as well as logically lead to the next project.
I knew I had stories worth telling. I had something to say and I was sure I could help people with my stories.
But there was a problem: I didn’t know which people.
Once I established which people I wanted to help with my stories, I had to figure out where they were and how I could reach them.
First, I needed to understand what made a great story. Then, I needed to know what platforms to use to tell those stories and how I could use them to inspire action among my audience. And finally, I had to make a consistent practice of telling stories.
Now, I’ve won several live storytelling competitions, written for national publications, and screened my film projects all over the world. But most importantly, I’ve been able to help people become the compelling storytellers they thought they could be.
But it never would’ve happened without the right training exercises.
Since the beginning of my storytelling journey, I’ve been using workbooks and journals to work those muscles daily.
Now I want to help you establish that same routine and become the compelling storyteller I know you can be.
My Storytelling Workbook walks you through the essential elements needed to tell your stories and has space for you to create up to 100 of them!
