If your message doesn’t speak to you, how do you expect it to speak to others?
If your own stories and insights don’t make you come alive, how do you expect them to make others come alive?
How can others find you engaging if you are not engaged? How can others find your subject matter fascinating if you are not gripped by fascination?
Whether you speak for an audience of one or an audience of one hundred, the principle remains the same: draw your energy from your own convictions not from what you think will please the crowd.
You can’t give what you haven’t received. If you want to set people’s heart ablaze, you have to be fired up in your own life.
