“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”
~Franklin D. Roosevelt~
Her heart said, ‘just press PUBLISH’!! Her thoughts were screaming, ‘are you CRAZY’??
Video by Diana Balbar aka Bookmobile Guru
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
“You gain strength, courage and confidence in which you really stop and look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along”.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them”
~John F. Kennedy~

My ‘Communicate With Confidence’ TIP 4 Today:
PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE!
And now, it’s time for me to PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE for the three speaking opportunities that I have this week!!!
Tuesday at 7:00AM – Present speech and PowerPoint presentation at my Morning Challengers Toastmasters Club meeting
Wednesday at Noon – Club Coaching at the Confidence Builders Toastmasters Club where Distinguished Toastmaster, Peter Kossowan (aka Mr. Toast) will be our very special Guest Speaker!
Wednesday Evening – It’s the last week of ‘Teen Toastmasters’ at Strathcona County Library. The absolutely awesome kids will present their final 4-5 minute speeches, and receive their Toastmasters International “Youth Leadership Program” certificates. With around 40-50 family/friends coming out to cheer the kids on, it sounds like our young speakers will have quite the audience to present their speeches to.
Yes, it’s going to be one busy and exciting week for this Toastmaster Gal.
