Coolest Reason to Do Public Speaking

A while ago a member of my Toastmasters club was asked to give an impromptu on why he wanted to do public speaking. His answer was one of the coolest I’ve ever heard.

His first language is Korean, and delivering a smooth speech in unbroken English is still quite a challenge for him. So he explained: Public speaking was one of his greatest fears. He didn’t like it, didn’t feel comfortable, didn’t feel safe.

And that’s why he does it.

He does it because it’s a fear and a challenge. And why not practice beating your fears and challenges?
