Why Not Being a “Natural” Can Be to Your Advantage
Have you ever wished that you could Speak Like a Pro?
Have you ever wished that you had the confidence and competence to stand before a group of any size and get your product or service or message out into the world so you could make a bigger impact?
Have you ever wished that somebody would just shorten the learning curve for you? Make learning easier? I certainly have.
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned in over 30 years in the speaking, training and coaching business, it’s this:
When it comes to success, there are no shortcuts.
Mastery takes the right mindset and a willingness to work.
My son came to hear me speak a few years ago – it might have been for the first time. I’ve been at this for over 30 years now. Afterwards we headed back over to the house. We were sitting on the screened in porch and out of the blue he said, “Mom, I thought you were amazing today. You make speaking look so easy. Like anybody could do it.
But I knew something sitting there that none of those other people knew. I knew all the days and weeks and months and years you have spent learning, preparing, practicing, honing …. And what I’ve learned from you is if you want something badly enough you’ve to be willing to work to get it. And I think that that’s one of the best things a kid can learn from a parent.”
Wow! Talk about being overwhelmed by a comment.
But it’s true, isn’t it? Becoming excellent takes work…and if you’re not one of the most skilled persons right now, but you’re willing to learn and hone your skills, you might just be in a better place than someone we’d call the “natural.” Believe me when I tell you that there’s a good reason why I say that, and I’m going to be speaking about that and MORE at my Learn to Speak Like a Pro Live Event on June 21 – 23.
If your desire is to make a bigger impact – play on a larger playing field – I want to be your teacher, your mentor, your guide—the person I wish I had had starting out as an entrepreneur. I want to help you get your product or service out into the world – get your message heard – get the work you want – able to influence people and make a real impact. I want to do this for you because being able to give to someone else what I wish I’d have had starting out makes my heart sing!!!
I’ve worked hard, and I know what it takes….but what I don’t know, and would like to know, is what is it that could be standing in your way of stepping up and doing the work that will put you in a position to confidently say YES when the opportunity to stand up and speak out appears?
I’d love your feedback! Won’t you comment below, and I’ll share when possible to help you get results faster.
In every situation, let’s all #Learn to Speak Like a Pro!
See you later!
