I was with a group of friends last evening. One person shared a story about his health journey of having two strokes this past spring (at an age way younger than expected). Fortunately, he didn’t suffer debilitating paralysis. However, his speech was impacted and this is very difficult as his work is client-facing – and his dream is to become a globally recognized speaker.
What was truly encouraging was this man’s perspective about all of this. In the process of learning to speak again, he realized that he had always spoken super fast to the point where he was often not understand at the level he wanted to be. Now, he has to speak slower which he believes will make him a better speaker – and his dream of inspiring audiences around the globe will become a reality. Not as planned, but even better.
Have a great day,
