Key Takeaways

~ If we don’t concentrate and focus on the goals we want to achieve in life, our goals will simply be a dream, and we can’t leave our goals to be dreams. The difference between a dream and a goal is that goals have tangible steps. ~ [08:43]

~ If you have not done the random word exercise a hundred times, the steps don’t matter; you get points on how many times you do the exercise, not on how well you do it. ~ [09:52]

~ Fear of communication… the anxiety of communication… can never be completely removed. It’s kind of if you are in a marriage and expecting every day to be a great day; that is a wrong expectation. ~ [15:36]

~ Think of your fear or anxiety like a boxing match, where one side of the ring is fear or any stressors, and the other side of the ring is the message and why it’s important for you to share. The goal is not for the fear to leave the ring, but to make sure when the two meet in the middle, and the bell rings, the message gets the knockout punch. ~ [16:48]

~ The best speakers on the planet use three tones at the same time so that they can go high, low, and regular at any time; don’t stay at the same tone when doing public speaking. ~ [31:25]

~ What’s great about practicing communication is that the worst thing that can happen is that you get better. ~ [40:04]

~ Pausing is the most important power technique in communication; it allows us to emphasize the key parts of our message; you want to pause at the parts of your speech where you feel your audience should pay attention to. ~ [47:27]

~ The reason you need a smile in your speech is that the presentation isn’t about you and what you think. The presentation is about the results and outcome you are delivering for the client. ~ [52:15]
