    Storytelling comes in many forms. It could be in word form like those used on books and other texts. It could also be in graphic form like those used in banners and other images. It could even be in action form like those used in commercials and other presentations.

    But do you know what makes all these storytelling forms equally powerful?

    It’s the fact that:

    Storytelling is a form of communication.

    When you communicate, you tell a story to people. When you tell a story to people, people will listen. When people listen, they tell that story to others. And so on and so forth, until the time comes that your story will be known all over the world. It all starts with communication, just like how you would do when you’re conversing with someone you’re in love with or when collaborating with someone you’re doing business with.

    Storytelling is also a form of relation.

    And by relation, it means relating to the story you’re telling and making it more understandable for specific types of audiences. And by relation, it also means relating to the audience of the story you’re telling and making it more understandable for other types of audiences. Ultimately, this will pave the way for a wider reach and a greater chance for your story to be heard all over the world.

    Indeed, storytelling is powerful. Even those who prefer staying in their own introvert palace would be able to find this form of communication, as well as form of relation, refreshing to the core – even something that would make anyone want to learn more about things, as well as something that would make anyone want to teach more about things.
