Aim High; Never Give Up

Toastmasters has taught me that I am capable of far more than I ever dreamed.

It took me 15 months to do my first 10 speeches. This year, I expect to complete 27 speeches by Christmas. Now, I speak on average more than once per week.

Five years ago, I would not have even considered being a leader. At best, I was a good follower. Now, I know I can step into leadership roles and excel. Past success helps me know I can do it again and again.

Simple, successful equation: Toastmasters = Great organization for cultivating self-confidence.


“I know I am good, but someday I can be great, if I just keep trying, learning little by little, and never give up. We can do more than ‘get by,’ we can all improve with help from our friends!”
