Have the Courage to Create Your Life

Part Two

Have the Courage to Create Your Life

Today, I am focused on moving forward, and I want to do something that is very edgy (read courageous) for me. I want to tell you a short story about something I did a few weeks ago.

During my quiet time at the end of last year, I realized that I wanted more and more to be on stage. I have always loved seeing shows, and each time, from when I was a child to today, I have wanted to be up there in the limelight. The problem is that I can’t dance, or sing, or act. So what the heck was I going to be on stage for?

As I have given myself the time to explore over the last couple of years, something has started to reveal itself: public speaking (please make revelation sound effect as you re-read this).

It makes so much sense! I thrive when I’m in front of people.

In the Zone

I’m in my zone of genius when I lead a workshop, and that’s why I was always an excellent teacher! Of course, the exception is that being a public speaker is a whole different ball game. You have no notes, you have to connect with the audience in a certain way, and you have to choose your words ever so carefully. It’s a craft I am not well-versed in.

Then… BOOM: The sign. On March 1st, while at lunch with my friend Susan, she told me about a class she was starting and that I could take that would allow me to develop a talk, and by the end of it, have a professional speaking reel as well as intros to speaker bureaus and TEDx organizers. I was all in! It was exactly what I needed.
