5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be perfect, you just need to do it!, May 22, 2014
This review is from: World Class Speaking in Action: 50 Certified Coaches Show You How to Present, Persuade, and Profit (Paperback)
These guys are really smart... I came to buy the book after stumbling across Mitch Meyerson's quiz "Are You a World Class Speaker" on his website because it didn't make me feel bad for not being perfect but rather opened to my eyes where I am now and how I could improve. Just by finishing the quiz I felt enlightened and empowered...

The book has helped even more with the key competencies of storytelling:
selling, process-driven, next steps, anchor-driven, beginning with a bang, succinct, focus, dynamics, involvement, staging, and audience research.

One idea that really resonated with me is that "when you lift yourself up, you let your audience down." The advice is to sell the audience on how great your process is rather than how great you are. Not only do I think this is smart psychology, but it motivates me more to speak publicly because it moves the focus from ME to WHAT my message is. I realized this before when I read Success Secrets of the Motivational Superstars welcome reminder to my confidence.
