Have you met people who’ve coped and survived almost unimaginable adversity? That faced life’s unavoidable challenges head-on, grew stronger, more vital, and in the end, savored all the sweetness life has to offer? Against all odds, expectations, or beliefs, they not only survived but thrived? What drives these “Thrivers?” What shared traits do they have? What can be learned? Can it be learned?

Through the trials and travails of life, we rarely stop to think of what we are doing or have done that makes a difference. A real difference.

Something that makes the world a little bit better in any way — no matter how small.

Something that leaves our slice of a fleeting, vaporous life better than before our first baby breath. We’re so enmeshed in doing, doing and more doing, that we lose sight of creating meaning– usually until it’s too late.

But what does a real difference mean?

Many times it bares no resemblance to what we might have thought at the time. Or others think.

This is one such story.

I’m a jerk. And might even be a Jerkaholic. Least I’ve been told that by more than one person lately. Undeservedly so I believe.

But sometimes you need to do a little introspection – take a timeout – to see if what the prevaricating, blasphemous, smellfungus ninnyhammer all-foam no-beer mooncalves are calling you just might be true.

When you were a little boy or girl you had this dream, you were going to change the world, restore honor, restore dignity. Remember? Did you follow your dream?

Michael Uslan did – and earned $2.6 billion dollars along the way. I had the wonderful opportunity (and great fun) of interviewing Michael. For those of you that don’t know the name, Michael Uslan, he was the executive producer of films such as Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, Constantine, The Spirit, Batman Begins, and the second highest grossing film of all time, The Dark Knight. As a producer, he is one of the highest-grossing movie producers of all time, with The Dark Knight alone having already passed the $1 billion mark.

Isn’t everyone looking for the secret sauce of success? I’m especially curious about great writers and storytellers. How did they learn the craft? How did they hone it? Who influenced them?

And you know what? The answer to those questions usually end up being the most revealing, illuminating, authentic… and fun And there’s always a great story involved. Is it because once you reach a certain level of success you look back and see how blessed you were at a certain time in your life to run across that certain person or book? Or you experienced something unexpected that set you on your life path? Or later, when you think back, it seems like it was a complete fluke, an accident of fate? But, without it they know – there would have been no success – or at the very least it would have been a completely different type of
success. http://stevekayser.com/who-influenced-you-interview-with-bestselling-author-dr-ken-blanchard/

Storytelling story-selling content is the new advertising, marketing & PR.

It’s a harsh new reality all businesses and employees have to face. You can still shell out tons of dough for advertising, marketing and PR campaigns and get retro-returns on your dollar, or you can do what people resonate with – story-selling by storytelling.
