I was revisiting my bucket list this summer and realized there’s only 3 remaining items as of today:
1) overcome stage fright and my fear of public speaking;
2) visit 100 countries before I turn 50;
3) start a charity related to orphanages after 50.
I decided to conquer #1 so I stopped by Toronto for a 3 day private one on one training with Katie who I feel is the best at what she is does. My goal is to completely overcome this fear by my birthday next year!
I didn’t achieve 100% of my expectation during my time in Toronto so I felt a bit discouraged but I was not going to give up so I reached out to Paul who was my Toastmasters mentor to help and he agreed. I now feel a lot more confident and motivated to “own the stage” someday—that’ll be when I can check this item off my bucket list!
I’m feeling very excited and grateful towards the people I have around me such as Paul, Maurice, Katie and Mercedes for supporting and helping me to conquer this long time fear of mine! I’m taking baby steps for now but I am confident I can do it as long as I stay focused on overcoming it.
