When you are giving a speech or filming a video, I can appreciate the desire to communicate exactly what you want to say through a carefully crafted script. But let me ask you… Do you prefer watching a person reading a script or sharing their thoughts from their heart?
A few years ago I did a post on this exact topic comparing two commencement addresses, one from Bill Gates and the other from Oprah Winfrey. Perhaps you can guess which one was more dynamic, but today I am sharing my technique WHY. When you prepare a speech using your imagination, your specificity and your desire to make the listener feel your message, amazing things happen. Remember, people remember the way you make them feel, not the words you actually said, so learn how to harness the power of thought bubbles to knock their socks off!
