Do not limit yourself.

improve your public speaking

I am not good in public speaking was the quick excuse of Rose.

She apologized to everyone. She did not want to waste our time.

And she went to me to explain why her speech was not good enough. Once again, she told me that she was not a born natural speaker. She is an engineer; engineers are not good speakers.

Her speech was nice. Her stories were interesting and the audience was receptive to her message. The purpose of her speech was self-introduction, and she was successful. But to her mind, she was a failure. She was not a good speaker and she would never become one because she is an engineer.

“No one is born a natural born speaker. There are people who learn how to speak well faster than the rest of us, I know. But I have not seen a new-born baby who speaks well. Everyone who desires to learn must put himself into conscious and deliberate study.”

She nodded her head.

“And one more thing. Engineers are special people. They are both creative and logical. They can make sense of things seen and unseen. There are many engineers who are excellent speakers. Do not limit yourself. It is not your fault that you are an engineer. It is your asset that you are an engineer.”

I do not know what you are thinking. But leaders who desire to inspire and empower people must learn how to speak well. You can do that too.

You are just one talk away to change the world. You have stories to tell that only you can give. Don’t let your story die in you. Don’t let your story die with you.

You may be thinking that people won’t be interested to hear from you. You tell yourself that you have a regular life. That like others you still struggle every day. That you have not achieved anything of worth.
