I chose this quote today because it really reflected on my desire to join Toast Masters. For years, truly years, I have wanted to join this group. Toast Masters is a group where people overcome their fears and limitations in communication. For me, I have a terrible fear of public speaking (who doesn't?). I find it holds me back with my writing as when I go to present my ideas I'm overcome with so much fear I don't give the best pitch I can. And yet, each time I consider going to a meeting I find a reason not to go. So this quote really struck me, because by never taking that step, I am affirming my indecision to go forward in my career. But you know what? I want to go forward. I'm deciding that, here and now. Come Monday, I will be at Toast Masters. What step can you take today that will affirm to yourself and the Universe, 'YES, I have decided and I am clear and willing and ready to go!'
p.s. a little update: I went to my first Toast Masters! I was terrified and thrilled. I'll be posting a little story about how it went soon.
