Metaphor instance

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Anne Miller suggests there are different sources for metaphors:
  • Story - "You remember the story of Atlas?  He was a god who carried the weight of the world on his shoulders.  Well that's what you're doing right now, you are carrying the weight of the company on your shoulders.  I want to show you an easier way to get even better results."
  • Analogy - "We are to the car  what the car was to the horse and buggy.  Our revolutionary approach will transform your company."
