The Power of Now and Public Speaking

Oprah said on her show last month that "The Power Of Now" by Eckart Tolle, is one of her favorite books. I read it and loved it. I realized that being in the present moment when you speak in public makes all the difference in the world. You can be in the moment when you are not trying to think of what you are going to say next. That’s why it’s so important to PREPARE every one of your presentations and to get PRACTICE speaking publicly. The more practice, the more comfortable you will be speaking in public whether you were prepared or not.

I was fortunate to see all of the following famous speakers present at the same conference: Les Brown, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and John Gray. Some of them were very prepared, some of them were not. But, they were all in the moment and spoke to us from the heart rather than thinking about what words to use. Connect with your audience and your message will be well received.
