When I first branded my business Speaking With Purpose, I had imagined that I would only be facilitating public speaking workshops.
Now it is so much more.
Whenever I’m speaking to a group, (no matter what the subject and not matter how small or large the group) with a business client, to a networking group, in a one-on-one coaching conversation, with a corporate team, I am speaking with absolute purpose and more importantly I add my passion as well.
Can I suggest that you do the same? If you are speaking about any subject, to anyone, if it is in the form of a presentation, or to a customer or client, give every word from your heart with absolute purpose and passion
As Oprah Winfrey said – “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you”.
If you focus on your passion and speak with purpose you will connect with the people around you much more deeply. You’ll have a point of difference because your purpose and passion will be different to the next person and your story will be different because it’s your story, no one else’s. Learn to use your stories in their entirety or as metaphors to get a point across to your audience. Practice your stories and become comfortable telling them so that you can tell them with enough emotion to connect, but not too much that you become overwhelmed and lose the point of telling the story.
Everyone has amazing stories to tell, so connect with your heart and give your stories to others with purpose and passion.
