Speak With Courage Textbook Analysis

Good Essays
In chapter 50 of the Speak With Courage textbook I learned to Set a goal, and then set out to achieve that goal. Going right along with this I also learned that on the day you speak, as the person you are, with the skills, knowledge, and aptitudes you possess, do the best you can and let it go. Personally, I often become overwhelmed that people will not like my speech because I am not the most talented or gifted student at strategically and efficiently expressing myself. Other times I feel like I am competing with my sister for the best speech performance. After reading these tremendous chapters in the Speak With Courage textbook I feel a renewed sense of motivation to not compare myself to others. I also find it helpful to go into each speech
