“When I grow up, I Wanna be a Rock Star!”
This is my all-time favorite band, Grand Funk Railroad. The big 3 with Mark, Don & Mel. I took this in 1997 at their Washington, DC show. I first heard of GFR when I was a kid. I got a Screaming Red Electric Guitar for Christmas when I was twelve. I wanted to be a Rock Star.
But, I am not. At least not like this. I was able to see GFR live when I was in high school and again 8 more times when they started touring again in the 90’s.
This is a Bonus edition of the podcast. I presented a speech at my Toastmasters Club at work with this title. I have included the link to the YouTube video of it below.
The point of the speech and this episode is to talk the scientific study performed by Dr. Gail Matthews at Dominican University in San Rafael, CA. Her study gives empirical evidence that the steps that I teach in my Goal Getting, Don’t Just Set’em, Get’em program and the 9 Steps To Successful Goal Achievement are valid.
In the podcast episode, I also talk about fears. Many people have a fear of Public Speaking,
The Fear of Public Speaking is the number one fear people have. Fear of Death is number TWO. Jerry Seinfeld has a great bit about it.
Do you have a goal to overcome the Glossophobia? Or, like me, do you have a goal to be a better speaker?
I wanted to be a better speaker. When the company I work for started a Toastmasters International club, I jumped at the chance to join. I had heard about Toastmasters and wanted to get involved before.
Toastmasters not only teaches you public speaking skills, they also have a Competent Leadership program to help develop leadership skills.
I would recommend you check out a Toastmasters Club in your area.
Here is the link to the Toastmasters International website.
I do better speaking in front of people these days than sitting at my desk recording this podcast.
