Imagine two different kinds of public speaking situations.
One is horrifying and would give us all nightmares.
The other is fun and enjoyable, and everybody would love doing.
First is the horrifying scenario.
You are up for the job of a lifetime.
In a company that is going to conquer the world one day.
And it’s down to you and three other candidates.
The four candidates and the board of directors are all on one room.
They are sitting and candidates are standing.
They board members fire off vicious question after vicious question.
They ask you to comment on each other’s answers to previous questions.
And they absolutely POUNCE on any sense of uncertainty or a vague answer.
Fight To The Death
And this is a “last-man-standing” kind of interview.
Whoever lasts the longest gets the job.
These interviews, in this example, are legendary.
Sometimes lasting 10-15 hours.
Now consider another type of public speaking.
You’ve learned of a magic place in the forest.
A very tiny stream that offers instant healing.
All you need to do is dip a spoon into this water, take a couple sips and all your problems are gone.
The rules are pretty simple.
The directions to this stream can never be written down.
Only transmitted orally.
No water can be taken away from this stream.
There are stream monitors who make sure the people who line up to take a sip behave orderly and politely.
Stand in front of the forest and give people very detailed instructions on how to get to the stream.
To tell them something they VERY MUCH want to know.
Consider these two opposite streams of public speaking.
Terrifying vs. easy and validating.
Now think of having a simple conversation at a party.
Two different frames of mind.
One is the “accept or reject” frame of mind.
Like the horrifying interview.
The other is “let me share something cool” mindset.
That of a genuine storyteller.
A friendly conversationalist who doesn’t want anything in return other than some positive feelings on the faces of his or her listeners.
This is the kind of presence that you can learn to resonate.
That you can learn to emanate.
The “I want to share something cool with you” presence.
The kind that is extremely attractive.
That kind that makes people feel good simply by being around you.
The kind made up of very specific details that you can easily learn.
Not only learn, but continue to get better.
To become more attractive, more charismatic, more magnetic and more enjoyed by others.
