The fourth Wednesday of the month is fast approaching which means, I have to gear up for the South Coast Speakers Toastmasters meeting. I was going to do this great speech project, I was well organised for it too: thought of a good topic, have been pondering on the details of presentation, had motivation and enthusiasm for it and all of a sudden, I am running out of time again! Thankfully, there are a few more days (and moments) left to prepare further.
It’s not always easy to find the time and motivation to be on track with the speech projects (and there are so many of them), but each time I overcome those time constraints and sit down to give it time and energy, I am enjoying it! I am having fun with it and I am learning lots with it too. It has helped me greatly to feel more confident talking to anyone really and the best it, that I don’t feel as nervous anymore talking to a group of people. I feel I can articulate myself, be in control and know the flow of communication and conversation.
I am not a champion yet, that’s why I keep coming back to the meeting. I feel communication is so important in daily life and I want to be really good at it. After 3 years at South Coast Speakers, I hardly miss a meeting or only with a serious excuse and hopefully one day, you will join us for a great gathering of like minded people who are enjoying communicating!
