Public speaking skills are critical to success in so many areas of life.
Which of the 3 types is your weakness?
How would your life be better if you could improve in that area?
What are you going to do about it?
The good news is that we aren’t stuck at a particular skill level when it comes to public speaking skills. Anyone can improve.
I think that most people have heard the saying “Don't go to bed angry.”
Many of us probably didn’t know that the idea actually came from a Bible verse.
The saying is usually brought up as marriage advice, but it applies to everyone. If something or someone makes you angry, you would be wise to handle it in one of 3 ways:
1. Hold your ground and fight for what you believe in.
2. Decide that it's not really that big of a deal and give up the fight.
3. Forgive and forget.
And of course, the faster you choose one of these options, the better.
The problem with holding in your unresolved anger, or putting it off for another day, is that it builds inside you. It may grow to a level that is bigger and more intense than the original issue even deserved. It may rob you of peace. It can definitely hurt relationships.
Holding things in for the sake of keeping the peace may sound like a good idea, and your intentions for doing so may be good, but you will be better off if you face your problems as quickly as possible, whenever possible.
We all want to know why we are here. Why were we even born in the first place?
The meaning of life has been debated and argued over the centuries, but I think I have the answer for you. And it’s not that complicated:
1. Work on improving yourself.
2. Help others.
However you choose to live these two things out is up to you. This is not a religious or deep conversation. But I think you are missing out if you aren’t making a conscious effort to do both things.
Whether we like it or not, our lives will all come to an end someday. There is an exact date and time that will happen.
So how are you going to spend the time you have?
So much of anxiety is caused by worrying that we aren’t good enough.
We are afraid that we aren’t good enough at work.
We are afraid that we aren't good enough in our personal relationships.
We are afraid that we aren’t good enough in social situations.
The best way to eliminate this kind of anxiety is a 100% commitment to being yourself and letting the chips fall where they may.
This is not to say that we should just let ourselves go and never work on self improvement. It is also not an excuse for treating people badly.
The idea is that we are who we are. Our core “selves” is not changing. The faster we can accept and embrace this idea, the better off we will be.
