Fear of Failure, Fear of Success, The Impostor Syndrome are fears that affect our success.  Do you suffer from these?  I wrote the speech linked here for my 10th Speech in the Competent Communicator manual for Toastmasters International.

Smooth Sailing on Summertime Cruises

Smooth Sailing

I love to go on cruises in the Caribbean.  I love Toastmasters and public speaking.  Today’s post is about one of my wife and my passions for taking summertime cruises in the Caribbean.

This is my Toastmasters Speech #4 – How To Say It.

Toastmasters defines Project 4 as:

How to Say It (Objectives: Select the right words, eliminate jargon, use rhetorical devices.)

This is the perfect project to tell about some of your favorite vacation spots; be sure to describe them vividly. Or describe your emotions during a major event in your life – marriage, the birth of your child, or retiring from your job. Describe a special person in your life, searching for just the right word to help everyone see and really know that person.

I presented this speech on July 23, 2014 at The FRB Toastmasters Club in San Francisco.  Watch the video below!
