The information you share is very important. How you share it can be just as important—if not more so.
I once was given an opportunity to address an audience for 10-minutes at an annual convention. This isn’t much time to “connect” with an audience or leave them with anything worth thinking about.
I gave it my best shot, and was pleasantly surprised at the warm ovation I received at the conclusion of my message. According to me, I hadn’t said much. I didn’t have enough time to set the hook, and follow up with some brilliance. I soon realized they were not applauding my words.
They were recognizing a guy who was happy at his work…a person who didn’t take himself or life too seriously…and someone who didn’t come across as if he had an axe to grind.
I speak for a living, and time and again I notice that my success has less to do with what I say and more to do with how I say it. When people witness an example of genuine, from-the-heart, sincere excitement…joy…and happiness, it is only natural for them to try to join in the celebration.
Today’s message is a simple reminder to those who have a keen desire to make their lives work better.
Get enthused about yourself…and what you do for a living.
- Your prospects will notice and appreciate you for it.
- Your management will notice and appreciate you for it.
- Your employees will notice and appreciate you for it.
- Your family will notice and appreciate you for it.
- You will feel better and enjoy being you
- Your enthusiasm is both welcome and appreciated. Give me some.
