After attending the two-week Tour Director school in San Francisco in October, I realized that I needed to become more comfortable with public speaking. I’ve been to three Toastmaster‘s meetings and just joined tonight. I’ve given a 1 minute speech at each of the three meetings on topics that we’re given right then to speak about.
You also take on leadership roles to run the meeting which is a great way to get comfortable with leading. I usually don’t have a problem being bossy…so hopefully this will come easy also!
I signed up for my first five-minute speech about myself in December. It is becoming easier each time and I feel proud of myself for taking the steps necessary to grow in this area!
If you had asked me just two years ago if I would be doing public speaking, I would have said, “No way”!
One new quote I heard recently that I will incorporate into my speech will be: Your Attitude & Your Choices = Your Life!
