“Pain is temporary; Quitting is forever”
– Lance Armstrong
I think this quote is appropriate to public speaking because it relays the message “your fear is temporary”. If you tell yourself “the fear will only last a little bit” and realize that if you don’t take the opportunities to speak, you are quitting on yourself, and that is forever.
So, the next time you have the opportunity to speak, don’t let the fear make you a quitter. Realize that you can overcome it and be able to speak well.
Until next time, don’t quit and speak well.
