My Lucky Shoes

Saturday, February 08, 2014

This is my winning speech from the 2014 Toastmasters International Speech competition (club level). Area level is next at the end of the month.

Winning at the club level was a goal (now done), and winning at area is the next goal.

Small victories add up no matter what your goal!

    I am a member of the emoticon team and I decided to "read" your blog. What an inspiring experience in your life! CHOICE is a powerful word, full of possible actions for living life well. Thanks so much for sharing and emoticon on your win. I have thought of joining Toastmasters but haven't yet. I think it takes a lot of courage to do what you did. God bless you in your journey. emoticon
