This story illustrates how important choice of words and language is when we want to truly connect with and move other people. This is what I personally think public speaking is about. “Connecting and moving other people” I know this because I`ve been involved in public speaking for quite some time now and have experienced these benefits, even though public speaking is listed as the number fear in the world.
People fear it more than they fear death. This means would rather die than stand in from of an audience and make a fool of ourselves. But we can turn that fear to motivation for leadership. People may laugh at you but you had the courage to stand and speak in front of a massive crowd. Because of that you are a winner.
