"How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four; calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg." ~ Abraham Lincoln
1. THE ART OF SAYING WHAT YOU MEAN AND MEANING WHAT YOU SAY
Most of us know how it feels to have missed an opportunity to put a point accross - it is not a good feeling. The cost of not being 'able' or 'willing' to say what's on your mind is often times significantly higher than the possible consequences of saying it. Even so, one needs to be able to say it like it is, without being reckless or disrespectful. People tend to think that, to be heard, they need to talk too much or too strongly. That is not so. There is a way of putting your point accross that's neither careless nor disrespectful.
2. A CHALLENGE FOR YOU
Make it your mission not to leave unsaid the things that need to be said. Learn to be calm, respectful, polite and be a good listener. That way, you will know HOW to say what you have to say.
3. QUOTES ABOUT SPEAKING YOUR MIND
"Whenever you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
~ Arthur Conan Doyle
"Most truths are so naked that people feel sorry for them and cover them up, at least a little bit."
~ Edward R. Murrow
4. Our Vision and purpose
Here in http://www.public-speaking-solutions.com, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the absolute necessity and importance of enhanced & effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
