In part 1 of this series, we explored the three aspects for how we write the scripts for our “History Channel”. These include 1) the global meanings, 2) the actual language of the narrative and 3) the levels of emotional intensity of “key words and phrases” we use repeatedly. These three aspects combined have tremendous influence for how we develop our beliefs that become the heart and soul of our stories.
Beliefs are comprised of thoughts, emotions and behaviors that form our memories, neural pathways about our stories. The degree of priming and power associated to our beliefs are directly correlated to the intensity of our emotional experiences and the nature of the key words and phrases we use to describe our stories.
