Thinking of giving my first self-development speech
There's a company that hosts an event called "a week of learning through life" and people can apply as speakers on various topics. The company hands out invitations, and they take care of any tools that I might need to do a seminar.
I was thinking of covering the subject of:
- goal setting
- success barriers and entitlement
- how we rationalize bad decisions in our everyday lives
- selective focus aka RAS
- why we always put off work till last day
The seminar should last about 90 minutes.
I am kinda not sure how deep I should go with this because to me lecturing about this is like saying "when you open the tap the water poures out", at the same time I don't know what my audience will be... I'm guessing from age 25-50.
Also at the start of the seminar it's reasonable to do a little intro... but I don't know what to say since I haven't really done anything that good except become NLP practitioner. So should I just say that I've been studying success for years from some of the best mentors in the world and also have been coached?
Any ideas are more than welcome, including anything else I should talk about.
The thought of doing this is making me kinda nervous, which is even more of a reason I'm thinking of doing it.
How big is the audience?
Public speaking is fucking awesome, go ahead and do it.
Do your breathing and vocal drills they'll help TREMENDOUSLY. Yes you can easily talk about your experiences. You've come a really long fucking way in a relatively short time. Hit me up on Skype
You should definitely do it. I just heard an udiobook calledtalk like TED. I'm personally not a huge fan of TED, but the book has some valuable insight into how to give a great public speech
Ok I just found out that the number of people I can expect is around 5-10 and that's because there are alot of events being hosted. Should I still go with it?
Do the football one it's more dynamic, plus shorter.
The football one is better
Ok, football one it is.
