The problem was that I sucked!
During that time, no matter how hard I try, I’ve never won any oratorical competitions; I’d bore people to death when I lead presentations; Even worse, people would loose interest, tune out to what I was saying and in some cases walk out.
The good news is that none of these epic failures stop me from pursuing my dream of being an eloquent speaker. Year after year I would shoot for the stars and be all gung ho about becoming a rockstar orator.
It was about 15 years ago when it dawned on me that to elevate my public speaking game, it can’t be just paying a lip service on Jan 1st and regret that nothing happened on Dec 31st. I have to be intentional. I have to be willing to put in the time and necessary effort to make things happen.
How can you ensure that this shift happens? Check out my medium blog post where I share 5 steps that you can take to be intentional and achieve your goals.
