Beginner – expert spectrum

Gary is an expert. You are an expert. Everyone is an expert in their own personal opinion.

You know who gives you what you’re lacking in personal confidence?


Great news. Maybe not what you expected, but still great news.

This means that you can go at your own pace.

This means that you can set your own goals and work hard, at your pace, to achieve them.

Seems logical to believe that motivation is also an inside job.

It is worth discerning that everyone can benefit from mentors, coaches, and continuous education. These initiatives, of course, are also an inside job.

There is beauty and power in hearing this from an expert. With 60 years experience, and a drive with few rivals, consider where you put someone like me on the beginner-expert spectrum.

Only Going to Say This Once

Please listen carefully.  This simple fact about public speaking may be the key to becoming a more effective leader.

But only if people listen very carefully, and not rush through this.

Here’s the truth about being a Professional Speaker:

  • If you look out at your audience and they look bored, you’re boring them
  • If you look out and they are on fire, you lit it

Leaders hate to admit they sometimes stink are not highly effective. This makes them look bad and feel horrible. Who wants that?

But the simple truth is, if the people around you don’t seem passionate about their work, their mission, their customers, guess what?

PS.  If your team is on fire with passion, mission, service, guess what?
