If you’re like many people, the new year is a great opportunity to set new goals, get motivated and take action. Make improving your public speaking one of your resolutions. If you aren’t a member of Toastmasters, come to a meeting and see what it’s all about. If you are a member, challenge yourself to work on a new speech or participate in a meeting with another role.
Tips for Reaching your New Year’s Goals:
1. Write it down! Seeing it in writing will make it more tangible and not remain in your head.
2. Create steps to reach your goal. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
3. Stay positive. Don’t be discouraged if you’re not progressing as quickly as you would like. Just keep going.
4. Make yourself accountable. Ask a friend or pair up with someone in Toastmasters to keep you focused and check in on your progress.
