Today, I am going to make my first attempt at one of my other 2014 resolutions (goals). Today I am going to a Toastmasters meeting!
Saying I’m not good at public speaking is a far cry for reality. I really, really suck at public speaking! My anxiety levels get so high when I have to speak, even in front of a group I know, that I fall apart, and become very ineffectual.
My employer has hinted at several turns that this is a handicap to my position, so I contacted a friend who is a fantastic public speaker and said HELP! His first advice was to join a Toastmasters group, so tonight is the night I attend my first meeting to observe. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
