Telling a story is the most powerful way to persuade people.

Here is a step-by-step method to get better at telling your story.

How to tell a good story:

Hook

The purpose of the hook is to grab attention.

If it’s good enough, people will listen to you.
Their little voice in their head will say, ”Wow. That’s interesting. I want to hear more.”

Think about headlines of the news.

Examples
’Why you should never…’’
‘’Secret of…’’
”Should you…?”
”Don’t leave home without…”
”The most embarrassing thing I will never do again…”

It’s all about them.
