I can’t explain it, but I was nervous before the speech I gave last Thursday. I guess it was because I didn’t deliver THIS speed as many times as I delivered my other speech. For My Brain Has A Hole In It speech, I delivered it to myself for 8 months BEFORE anyone heard it. When I started giving it, I would practice on the days I didn’t give my speech. This means, in 2 years, I gave the speech about 500 times ( and I still have to read it).
For the Putting Failure In Its Place speech, I kind of slacked off…only giving/practicing for less than a year (about 100 times). No wonder I didn’t feel “prepared”.
But I gave my speech and the audience loved it. I spoke to my client, and she said she really needed to hear my talk. She said I told them that “it took commitment and follow though every day to make it happen. If you make this plan, you HAVE to do it. No exceptions.” I couldn’t say it better!
