    "YOUR words...can change someone's Thinking, Feelings, Actions, Habits, Character, Destiny, and Legacy." This is something I believe completely and try to be mindful of. The words you tell yourself are as important as the words to speak to others. We live in a world where so many feel compelled to criticize, condemn and complain. People very easily slash at the character of others with their words but find it difficult to pay a sincere compliment or utter words of support, warmth and love.

    A few years ago I was paying for my groceries and the lady behind me at the checkout was with a little girl about six years old whose face was deformed. I think this was a mother and her daughter, but I cannot be sure since the woman was so mean and cruel to the little girl. I remembered something I read in a book by Wayne Dyer which said we are all as perfect as we were intended to be. We tend to think of people with disabilities and chronic health conditions as being imperfect, and as a result we project that thought onto children and others. That is unfair since our true nature is one which is perfect and without limits. I asked the little girl if she was a princess and told her I thought she must be one because she was so beautiful. I hope my words gave her some peace that day and made her mother reconsider her behaviour. I often think of that poor girl. I hope she learns to temper the cruelty of this world with the knowledge that she is the only one who can truly define who she is.

    Great Article. Our spoken words from our heart. I agree that connection is so important because I feel what is part of programming that is whom we associate will on a daily basis (in person, online, audios) and the books we read. All this go in to are subconscious. This "underwater iceberg" is the root our words in which triggers the rest of which you wrote.

    What I take away, @Kwesi Millington, is that being in alignment with who we are is the best way to interact with the world. But it can be hard work to spend the time to know ourselves properly, because so much of modern life is about consuming what other people want us to want. And being who others want us to be. But joy and the power that comes from expressing positive energy is an inside job of meshing our thoughts and feelings.

    Let me take this opportunity and welcome you as a new Bee @Kwesi Millington!!

    I appreciate your Buzz, well written and insightful. (I hope you don't hear the "but...") From my perspective, however, this may feed into the "illusion" that I am not like most people when in reality I have done everything that most people have done. I may not want to continue to do those things because when most people do them it doesn't turn out well. That is why I am trying to learn how to do it differently. So the pain I am trying to avoid is the pain I have already been experiencing...like most people. Why can't we focus on the fact that all people go through pain, even the successful ones and it is this experience that enables us to persevere and succeed. I see pain as a communication, our body or psyche is letting us know something is happening, alerting us, bringing our attention to something. It may not feel good, or we may not like it but, in many ways, thank goodness for it. Thanks for the opportunity to take part in this discussion Kwesi.

    the Big Word Conundrum...

    Do not use big words to impress your audience. Clearly every market sector will have its' own technical jargon that is relevant, hot, and required - but avoid using the 12 dollar words just for the sake of having them.

    Your first clue that the word is out of scope for your presentation - you have to look up how to spell or pronounce it. Yep, if it is not part of your everyday speech, chances are that your audience isn't wrangling that word much either.

    Other words to watch for and avoid - acronyms, abbreviations, foreign words, long technical terms. There will come a time when you have to use each of these (the medical field is notoriously full of greek / latin words) If you do use them, make sure that you define them, clearly - either on the screen in text, or a verbal explanation of the full scope concept of the word you are attempting to integrate.

    It is best to avoid them altogether if you can. Don't speak to your audience like they are children, but don't try and dazzle them with your highfalutin lexicon chicanery . If you are consulting a dictionary or thesaurus for filler and fluff into your talk....stop, step away, and come back to reality. Hemingway is famously noted for writing between the 3rd & 5th grade levels - you should aim for that same target with your public speaking efforts.

    More next Time
    PS - did you find all the big words that could have been & should have been replaced? What would you have used instead?

    Standing in the Spotlight -
    Let's face it - public speaking can be frightening, most will avoid it out of sheer fright....and many of those that do get up to do it - will put a death grip on the podium like it is their lifeline.

    I have been doing professional briefings, seminars and training for nearly 30 years. Trust me when I say, the podium is not your friend. You need to step out from behind it. Less than 10% of your message are the actual words you are using - your body language is the predominant telegraph of your communication and conversation. This is doubly so if you are in a large auditorium and it is difficult for anyone but the front few rows to see your facial expressions.

    You need to step out from behind the podium, and own the stage. I do not mean waltz or moonwalk, but you should cover enough of the stage that your audience does not fixate on you like another piece of furniture.

    Do you have questions, fears, or curiosity about public speaking ? Chime in below; let's get the conversation started - because when you can interact and connect with the audience ~ everything is easier.

    #13 When we try acting we discover how challenging it really is and like singing we either have this or we don't but at least in experiencing acting we get insights into being because we are placing ourselves in the mind, spirit and body of another. What I find just as challenging is impromptu - and in impromptu we are not acting, we are facing the moment - so both are great vehicles. If you know the past of @Alan Geller he has actively been involved with theater and through him I learned the value of theater.

    #1 Dear Dean, the Pat Kelly sketch is exquisite and hits the mark in a way that I would find it difficult to articulate in words alone. Not only are we viewing effective techniques but it puts the audience in the position where they are not just listening to a thought leader but in a potential place of discomfort if they realize the very nature of their own conditioning to thought.

    The last thing I would like to be viewed as is as a thought leader, for why are we still leading thought in the 21st Century? This is what Pat Kelly does with such insightful delivery - as he carefully reveals the magic act of tethering an audience - which is revealing the often hidden relationship between the thought leadership and the conditioned audience.

    We have a free choice to be led or we can question this leading. We are led in health (the pharmaceutical industry) we are led in media (the control of media) and we are led in education (rote learning). All of this leads to deficiencies in health, media and education - until we appreciate we are the outcome and result of all those three things.

    Once we are aware of our own complicity in this, Pat Kelly's sketch is even more insightful and delivers like the purpose of art should be - which is to make us personally think, where leaders create leaders and not simply more product sold as health, more product sold as media and more product sold as education and all of that product constructed of this commodity material called "thought leadership".

    #12 I totally agree dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. Observation is a way of being on the stage and being on the Earth. Acting for an audience is the most powerful meditation moment I have felt in my life, and it's a kind of connection with one of all those characters I have inside. The best way I have found to learn about myself.

    It is true that life is a game and life is stage and in that field be a player or be an actor. There is a space in life where life is not a game and it is not an act and that is a rather precious and personal space.

    Where we think that life should not be a game and it should not be an act, that often becomes a confrontation with the real world and this is an unnecessary confrontation, the drama of which eventually becomes something corrupt or a least saps and drains the human spirit rather than add to it, and this experience is the antithesis to the excellence found in sport or theater. It takes imagination to act, it takes physicality to play so we are learning something and extended our learning as we do this.

    The most discerning aspect of life is enjoying what is. When @Alan Geller today devotes his attention to Jiddu Krishnamurti in his latest After Dark, pay special regard and attention to it - because "what is" is different from playing and different from acting. All of this is diversity and is a choice we have, it is best to avoid judging these choices but to appreciate them, and so I do appreciate.

    Nice buzz, @Mamen 🐝 Delgado. "All the world's a stage. And all the men and women merely players". Nothing worse than 'reading' to an audience. Being 'off the cuff' and looking like you're 'ad libbing' takes a lot of practice, which is, of course, quite paradoxical. Personally I like to move around the audience, or gathered group, instead of standing at a lectern. I invariably start by apologising for my walking around, telling them I used to play the bagpipes, and how a moving target is more difficult to hit. 🎤😉

    "We're information crazy" Yes, to say "I don't know" are one of the most difficult words to say, we don't always have the answer it is actually most of the time the other way around. I'll keep thinking all day on Werner Erhard's words.

    Many have indeed gone to that place and dwelt there in silence to realize something. Through the vanquishing of the self and the discarding of wisdom picked off the shelf :) Many have spoken that we are "nothings'' with ''everything'' right inside us. So looking at oneself as Mr.Nothing who has everything right inside engenders gratitude, love, compassion, sacrifice and tolerance. But if one were to think of oneself as Mr.Everything then going by the same logic (in spite of the most vehement denial) one would actually have Nothing inside. And this attitude would engender pride, ego, greed, covetousness, jealousy and the rest of the deadly w/sins. The Nothingness beyond is pure consciousness pregnant with possibilities but a nihilist's Nothing is just oblivion or blissful ignorance.

    Amazing way to move a crowd! He didn't have to ask for them to follow, they just did. I wonder if there's an artist now that has a similar skill.

    Radio Ga-Ga has often been in my head in the last 10 yrs. I haven't heard it on air even once in the last 20!

    Ironically, all the radio became Radio Ga-Ga some 25 yrs later, championed by singer baring a similar moniker!

    Why is it none of today's celebrities have the husky voice like Tallulah and Barbara Stanwyck . Everybody seems to have a high-pitched squeal at they back of their throats, they basically all sound alike.
