    Most people who try to influence others commit a fatal mistake: 

    They only rely on information. But if information could impact people, everyone would be skinny, rich, and happy. That’s because stats, figures, and data only impact two areas of your brain.

    The key to impacting every part of your listeners’ brains? 

    Storytelling. 

    Not only will telling better stories make you more influential and persuasive, but it will help you impact more lives than you can imagine. That’s because it’s the foundation for all human connection.

    In this episode, you’ll discover how to harness the power of storytelling to make your dreams (and everyone’s listening) come true. 

    Listen now. 

    Show highlights include: 

    • How watching movies nominated for Academy Awards brings you closer to your loved ones (0:35) 
    • Why you learn new concepts more thoroughly when they’re told to you through a story (2:48)

    You have two choices to make everyday: 

    You can either choose pride, which leads to destruction, misery, and anger because it isolates you. Or you can choose humility, which leads to blessings, encouragement, and fulfillment because it connects you. 

    But it’s hard choosing humility over pride. Pride is clever and conniving and makes you feel good. At the expense of ruining your life — and the lives of your children and grandchildren. 

    But humility is the antidote to pride. 

    And in this episode, you’ll discover how to choose humility (even when it makes you feel weak). 

    Listen now and receive blessings for the rest of your life. 

    Show highlights include: 

    • The counterintuitive reason your best month in business sets you up for humiliating failure in the following month (2:53) 
    • Why pride will massacre everything which brings you joy (and how to stay humble as you experience success) (5:56) 
    • How pride is the culprit behind rage-filled outbursts that ruin your most cherished relationships (7:38) 
    • Why asking for help displays your strength (even if it makes you feel weak) (9:22)
