Is Your Life Interesting?

Posted by:

Life is too short not to be interested.  Whether you see life as a sexually transmitted disease or a divinely given gift, you must live it.  What does it mean to live your life?  How do you measure it, in minutes or in moments?  What does your life say to others, is it an example or a warning?  Your life is a question, how you choose to live it is your answer.   What questions you ask, how you go about ...

Do You Have A Picture of Health?

Posted by:

Of course when you eat right, engage in moderate exercise and get plenty of rest you are the picture of health.  What might not be so obvious is that what you feed your audience, how you exercise their attention, and how often you let them rest determine the health of your presentations.

Take a breath.  Yeah, right now.  Breathe in and breathe out.  Hopefully you were already breathing but you probably weren’t paying any attention to your breath.  Take another breathe.   ...

Has Chance Done You a Favor?

Posted by:

Chance is random by nature; however, the success of your next presentation is not a matter of luck.  It depends on you.  When you take the chance on growing experiences into expressions, cultivating probabilities into possibilities and reaping purpose from your performance, your next presentation will be a sensation.

Is Your Disease a Gift?

Is Your Balance Moving?

Posted by:

The lectern wobbled as John placed his notes and a water bottle upon it.  The notes slid to the restraining edge while the bottle teetered as he tried to steady it.  Surveying the room, he sighed.  The chairs were all crooked.  Surrounding the chairs were candy wrappers, Cola cans, and confetti.  He sighed again and began cleaning.

John knew what he wanted the room to look like, and so in short order, the chairs were aligned in even rows and all ...

“What do you think eloquence is?” John asked, raising his eyes from The Art of Public Speaking by Dale Carnegie.

“It‘s when someone says something really well.” Jane replied, pausing slightly as she sucked the Frappuccino through the straw.

“So it doesn’t matter what you say, as long as you sound smooth?” John prodded, wondering if she was ever going to share any of the drink he had purchased.

Is Your Picture Inspiring?

Posted by:

“Wow! What an inspiring speaker.”

Guiding her arm under his, Jane tugs John out of his seat. “Let’s introduce ourselves… maybe we can get a picture with him.”  John, reluctantly, follows.  Why does she find him so inspiring?

As they approach, you energetically greet them in stride, “Thanks for coming today.”
Offering your hand, you glance at their name tags.  “It is a pleasure to meet you, Jane.  And John, I must compliment you on your choice.” Warmly connecting with John’s eyes, ...
