A member of my Toastmasters Club came up to share with me a story one day. In his own words, he said, “Gary, I was terrified to speak at first. And I was really horrified when I first served as the Toastmasters for the Evening (Emcee) at another Toastmasters Club. However, after all these months and having gotten more experiences under my belt, I’m feeling so much better now!”
“I now know, it’s all about getting my first time out of the way in order to improve!”
Personally, I’m very proud to hear of his progress and even more delighted to hear how he has benefited from having the courage to take the first step!
To Start, You Don’t Have to Be Good. To Be Good, You Have to Start!
Take the leap of faith! If you REALLY want to improve your public speaking capabilities, I’d really suggest you join a Toastmasters Club today! After all, in the words of Public Speaking Champion 2001 Darren LaCroix, it’s all about Stage Time, STAGE Time, and STAGE TIME!
Are you going to that leap of faith today?
