This is why you should engage yourself in Public Speaking!

We have all struggled with recognizing our self-worth at some point in our lives. ๐Ÿ’ช

No matter what happensโ€ฆ you never lose your worth.

When I was growing up, I was always the quiet type. ๐Ÿค“

I can say I am an ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐จ๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ญ and speaking publicly is something I would never dream of doing.

One day, I attended the John Maxwell conference with my wife.

It was then that I realized that to be able to lead people, you have to be good in public speaking.

You see, ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐›๐ฅ๐ข๐œ ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ž๐š๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  is considered to be part of the art of persuasion. ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿคโ€๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป

This is important because it helps you improve your knowledge, and at the same time, gain followers.

Public speaking can serve the ๐ฉ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฌ๐ž of transmitting information, telling a story, motivating people to act or encouraging people.

Its skills allow people to ๐ข๐ง๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ฅ๐ through public leadership in society.

During this time of social distancing its important to build relationships and appointments so that when things are back to normal you can start your in-person speaking gig very smoothly.

Itโ€™s advised to use Zoom or GoToMeeting or WebEx or YouTube Live or Facebook Live for meetings when conducting remotely.

Itโ€™s either you take a chance todayโ€ฆ

… or spend forever with haunting regrets and by then, thereโ€™s nothing youโ€™ll be able to do to change it. ๐Ÿ™

So whatever fear or shyness youโ€™ve been using as an excuse to put it off, ๐ช๐ฎ๐ข๐ญ ๐ข๐ญ.๐Ÿ‘Š

Take the first step ๐ง๐จ๐ฐ. ๐Ÿฆถ No questions. No excuses.

So, tell me, whatโ€™s next? ๐Ÿค”
