Last week I began discussing the 7 Leadership Lessons to Forge Your Own Path by Mary Oliver. Today, I want to let you know that you can stop punishing yourself!
In Oliver’s Poem entitled Wild Geese, she writes “You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
In other words, you need to allow yourself to be yourself and not apologize for it.Allow yourself to love what you love, do what you need to do and be who you are.
Do you have the space to be who you are at home or at work? What about Toastmasters? In Toastmasters we are encouraged to not only be who we are, but to develop those skills in leadership and speaking. Do you want to develop who you are? If so, you are in the right place. If you want to learn about relationship or mentoring skills, consider being a part of this year’s District Executive Committee as an Area Director. This role will help you do exactly that.
Attention Toastmasters from Genesee!
How many times have you thought of the perfect response long AFTER you gave a subpar answer you would rather forget?
Probably more often that you would like to remember.
Being able to craft cool, confident and coherent responses to impromptu questions is a skill we can all use.
Our upcoming Open House is designed to show participants how to develop this skill.
Please invite your friends, family and associates to our Open House on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 at 7:30 AM.
