What's so special about you? Well, I'll tell you. Because it is the specialness of you that people resonate with. No one really wants everyone to be the same, so turning out a bunch of speakers who are all like one another is a useless thing to do.
Plus, it's boring for both you and your audiences, whether you're on or off a stage!
So here are some aspects of you that are just so special:
Your way of looking at the world and feeling the way you do about the things that matter to you - those are special aspects of you.
Your way of expressing yourself, your turns of phrase, your accent, your gestures - those are all special, unrepeatable and unique.
Your particular combination of humor and knowledge - unique to you and what you bring forward into your life, your business, your relationships!
The stories you choose in order to highlight your points of any talk, the cadence of your voice.
Think these things are no big deal? If so, understand that no one can do a talk like you do - no one anywhere. And understand too that individuality and being authentic is what we love about actors, singers, performers of all kinds!
You are unique, and when you understand that who you are is enough, then the fun begins. And it never ends.
