Get Your Way with Public Speaking

People who speak up more, tend to get their way.

Recently in my spin class (indoor cycling) the instructor asked the class if they would like to go an extra 10 minutes. No one answered. She asked again, and waited for a response. One person spoke up and said, "Yeh - bring it on!" Since that was the only answer the instructor received, that's what she did. She brought it on. She made the entire class work hard for 10 extra hard minutes. The rest of the class was pretty exhausted, had places to go, and really wanted the class to end on time, but because one person spoke up, that person got their way.

When you are used to speaking in public, you tend to speak up more in different types of situations. When you do, you are more likely to get your way.
