Do you know who you are…really?
In order to be a good public speaker you need to be comfortable with who you are. And in order to be comfortable, you have to know yourself—the good…but more importantly and the not so good.
It is easy to focus on the good things about ourselves… if we truly want to grow—we have to look at the not so good things a about ourselves as well. Many people find this difficult and avoid examining themselves in truth and honesty.
Maybe they feel if they do not admit it then it is not so. Or they are waiting for someone else to mention it to them—and if no one does then they don’t have to worry about it. Whatever the reason it is avoidance which leads to a false belief of oneself.
