Toastmasters - A journey of self-discovery
This was an "Aha" moment for me. Morgan says that if Toastmasters leave the program after 10 speeches they are missing one of the most important benefits of the Toastmasters Program. After 20 years in Toastmasters, Morgan has found that Toastmaster is a journey in Self-Discovery.
I have heard that Toastmasters helps people to learn who they are and to become comfortable with being yourself. Morgan articulates this thought clearly.
So, if you are in Toastmasters, continue to speak and follow your journey in self-discovery. This is a hidden benefit of the Toastmasters program, that you will gain in addition to specific public speaking skills.
Also, I urge you to join the EDGE program. This is the best investment you can make as a presenter.
