Manner of Speaking WordPress blog. It’s a good one. Click here to check it out.
If you have no interest in Public Speaking, that’s ok. May I offer this different perspective for still paying attention to this jungle jeff blog post?
As a Professional Speaker, sometimes a “sports story” is appropriate. There are people however, that will immediately turn off and tune out. Why? Well for starters, they’ll say things like:
“I don’t like sports”.
“I never played sports”.
“I don’t watch sports”.
“I hate sports”.
So let me just say this, when I tell a “sports story”, it’s not about sports, it’s about excellence. When I blog about public speaking, it’s not about public speaking as much as it is about passion, and the pursuit of excellence – in any endeavor.
That’s why you should pay attention. “You can observe a lot by watching”. – Yogi Berra
What’s it mean in my LinkedIn Profile, when it says “I give speeches to change the world”?
Well, it’s a bold statement to be sure. And, it’s essence is placed in the profile for a very specific reason.
Is it possible to give speeches to change the world? Indeed. Just ask this audience in Dallas, Texas. Dalton Sherman, an 11-year old fifth grader gave a speech. Maybe he’ll help change the world in Dallas.
If you don’t have nine minutes to listen to the whole thing, simply watch the first minute.
That’s what I’m trying to say, “I give speeches to change the world”.
