How a Public Speaking Mindset Creates Opportunities
Mindset creates opportunities because you’ll see your visions come to life when you believe in them. When I’m working with professionals to present information successfully, it comes down to a critical asset: mindset. First and foremost you need a foundation that begins in your own mind. That’s where confidence ultimately resides. It moves from your mind and manifests into your physical world as you start believing in yourself. Here are 4 ways that confidence (residing in your mind) manifests into your physical world in the form of opportunities related to public speaking.
Last weekend I attended an amazing training course that was pretty full on for the entire weekend. All good news that I will tell you about another time. Sunday night arrived and I just wanted to unwind. The next thing is I am watching the X-factor and marvelling that Cher at 67 years of age is crooning away; in tune, with a number from her latest album; apparently her 25th. Yes you read that correctly 25th?!
With the average commercial ‘life span’ of a pop star being around 4 years I am then truly impressed. As if by magic the question I am asking in my head suddenly pops out of the presenter; Dermot O’Leary’s mouth: “Cher what advice would you give to the contestants who want to be as successful as you are?” A woman of few words Cher then gives a simple answer. “Don’t take no for an answer!” That was it. I sense for the majority of people in the studio the impact of her response was lost. Not in a certain house in Edinburgh though.
