Speaking Is a Gift You Must Share with Confidence

I encourage you to learn how to become a great speaker.

You don’t have to be a world champion in public speaking to do that. This is because great speaking isn’t about techniques. It is more about what happened to your audience after you delivered a speech.

You can join Toastmasters International or any group that will teach you the techniques.

Today, what I want you to keep in mind are simple principles so you can share your gifts with confidence.

When you speak, you are sharing your uniqueness. When you go up there on stage, they want to see you and not a made-up speaker. They want to hear your stories. They want to be connected to a genuine person.

Speak so you can open their ears, eyes, hearts, and minds to the beautiful world that most people don’t experience.

Yes, this is also world-changing. And you can do this little by little.
