That’s right. You write – you speak. Speaking. Gulp.
Here I am in Statesville, North Carolina, one and one half hour from my first speakers conference. The schedule promises me I’ll make new friends! Break through barriers and hit my goals. Some topics to be covered are “Delivering my Message with Flair” and “Fine Dining Secrets”. Words like Purpose, Savvy, Refinement, and Empowering are tucked in the session titles to assure me I’ll come back polished and ready to go. Hmm.
All this because I’m an author.
Speaking doesn’t bother me much. It’s just that getting in front of people, opening your mouth, and something intelligent coming out part that trips me up. And those head shots and video sessions sound intimidating. Other than that, I’m good.
I’m going to take lessons from the young man in this video. I’ll repeat these words all week, “Believe in yourself”.
Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you.
