The one who listens is exposed to the impact of the tale. It is possible for your whole life to be changed by a story at a crucial time by someone who you respect and trust. The effect of a story not only counts on its content but also in its timing and above all dependent on the relationship between teller and listener.
Within your mind’s eye imagine two people sitting near one another. One is telling a story the other is listening. In the space between story teller and listener images will arise. Characters will be created; both people will see the story but both will also see their own story. The power of words extends beyond the power of content it also has the power of repeated usage, of association and of intent.
What has been the impact of the stories you hear? Told to you in your role at work, by family or friends.
