“Authenticity doesn’t mean you can’t use preplanned words. It just means that when you do, you have to make them your own, in both your head and your heart.” ~ Bob Burg and John David Mann
Melissa’s Words of Wisdom
Ooooh I love this!! I am all for practice practice practice. I love to polish up a keynote, a workshop, an elevator pitch, etc. However, a MUST to all of my communications both professional and personal is that they are me and they come from my heart and head. I am terrible as using someone else’s scripted words that don’t resonate with me. I feel awkward and fake when I try to force myself to say something inauthentic. I just don’t have the same confidence that I have when I’m using my own words. How about you? Do you feel that way too? Remember, nothing happens until you decide to take action! Leave a comment below about how you practice your words, yet stay true to being authentically you. Be true to yourself! Be Authentic! Happy Being Authentically YOU!!
