Whatever challenges you are facing right now, are you trying or training to overcome it?
I have done both trying and then training. The difference is that trying is about getting lucky without paying the price and training is committing to work at it till you see the change.
Trying is what most of us do when we want to make a change in our life. However, we leave too much to chance when we try. Training requires sustained, intentional effort and practice. Training is consistent, and training happens whether it is a sunny or rainy day.
How does it apply to public speaking and presentations?
Are you a speaker who prepares for a presentation, or are you someone who prepares whether you have a presentation or not?
Training is being able to do today what you can today so that when you are called tomorrow for the game, you are ready to go and play full out.
What are you seeing, hearing and doing morning and evening that can help you to become a better speaker?
Who is your hero, and what lessons are you learning from them?
While speaking to an audience, is your focus on how you look and sound or on how your talk can change their world? Many presenters fail to recognize that most of the times, it is not them, but the message that they share that is memorable.
A presenter who trains craves the experience and does not turn down opportunities to speak.
Do you know that no matter what you do in your life, one tool that is more effective than any other is Speaking or Presenting?
How would you like to sharpen your presenting skills?
Do you want to leave it to chance, or do you want to train to excel at Presenting?
