Answer This

Last Sunday, we at Iligan Toastmasters Club celebrated our Christmas party at Fontina. It was one heck of a party. There was group dancing, games and of course a talent portion. I had no idea toastmasters had such talent! One member played classical guitar, another played the violin, someone belted out a song number and another member performed as a human beat box. Talent is truly meant to be shared.

There were several new members who delivered their ice breaker speeches. It may have been their first speech as a toastmaster but it amazed me how confident they were in delivering it. Yes, I could see that they were a bit nervous (that is totally normal). You cannot imagine how nerve racking it is to give your first speech (unless you’re a toastmaster). I went through the same experience. But they all pulled through gracefully.

Out of all the speeches I heard that day, one jumped out to me. And it was because the speaker asked a very poignant question:

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

That question got me thinking.

What about you? What would you do?

Hit “POST COMMENT” at the bottom and answer it. It might seem like a lot of work but you will find that it will clear your head.

Come on. Don’t be lazy :) Do it NOW. You’ll be amazed. 


  1. the first thing that came to mind was surpass Warren Buffet.

    But then after I do that, I'd probably do everything else imaginable.

  2. The first thing that came to mind for me was...Real Estate! And then after that, everything else too! :)
