We have had a great opportunity today to share some wisdom with this vibrant group of South Sudan Young Leaders – as we finalized the “Public Speaking” course with them before their graduation in 2 weeks.
Among the many areas of our discussion was the topic of Self Confidence. One key thought we shared with them was that;
“to the face of confidence, fear is just a dance floor.”
Many people by the mere fact of hearing any invitation to speak tend to feel like dropping dead because of their fear of public speaking. They forget that – “fear only triumphs in the presence of silence.” When we chose not to say a word, we empower fear to rule over us.
We need to therefore learn to welcome all our fears as “the perfect invitations to showcase our dance moves.”
