In such a crowded world, how do people get noticed? What makes a person stand out in a packed room?
Dale Carnegie in his book, How To Win Friends & Influence People, has a suggestion. He encourages you to Dramatize your idea. Listen to what he says, This is the day of dramatization. Merely stating a truth isn’t enough. The truth has to be made vivid, interesting, dramatic. You have to use showmanship. The movies do it. Television does it. And you will have to do it if you want attention.
Next time you go to present an idea, instead of merely quoting the facts, bring it to life. Add some energy to it. Don’t just tell her how your idea will make a difference. Show him. Show him how it will save money. Show her how it will save time. Show her how this is what you need to be doing.
Facts can be boring. And boring doesn’t get noticed. The old saying, “The proof is in the pudding,” is still valid today. Seeing is believing.
Next time you present an idea, spice it up a little. Bring it to life. And see what happens.
How have you had success in presenting your ideas?
