Sometimes we can’t see the change in ourselves, until we step back to look.
I was given the honor recently of speaking at a podcast meetup. The talk was on Free and Inexpensive Podcast Tools. This would’ve terrified me a while back. I’ve spoken in front of a youth group before, spoke in front of a congregation, but I have rarely done public speaking.
I had to build up the confidence through things like my dance competitions/showcases and my podcasts/streams. I might think I haven’t progressed as a speaker. There’s still the stuttering sometimes, those parts I consider to be my weakness. It takes stepping back to see what has changed. I would not say the presentation was perfect, but it is much better than what I’ve done in the past.
I have changed as a person. I see where I was, where I’m at now and where I’m going. In fact, it was less terrifying to speak in front of a group than it is to podcast and stream games. Who would’ve thought?
