I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quotes #99....
"All the great speakers were bad speakers at first."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-
I cannot wait for the comments on this one. We have many public speakers in the audience.
Funny how there is an old wives tale that when asked their biggest fears, people actually list public speaking ahead of death! I liked Emerson's quote because there are some people that think things "just happen". I am of the belief that we humans LEARN through EXPERIENCE. Some people may be a tad more gifted or 'natural' than others, but experience still plays a huge part. No one comes out of the womb as an awesome speaker. This applies to the Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan's and the Brett Favre's of the world as well. Some say they have all natural raw talent. They just 'got it'. I say they may have more than you or I.. but they still put in a BAZILLION countless hours to become masters at their respective crafts.
Attention Public and Professional Speakers.. nows your chance to be heard.......
That's my view....... What say YOU?
