When I was 20 I found my first true mentor. He had the right information too and honestly used to stammer just as bad as me. The difference was he had found a way to overcome his stutter. The secret (or whatever you choose to call it) is through public speaking. It is something I live and breath by because it was the true turning point in my speech, confidence and overall life.
Once I got my voice right I had real certainty in my world. I knew what I wanted to say and I said it. Instead of being afraid to speak my mind or make my opinion known, I would speak without hesitation and with command. This success snowballed into more opportunity and more growth in my speaking, income and most importantly relationships. To reflect on this it is still very strange to me...
I know that for most people with a stutter their biggest fear would be to speak in front of an audience. It’s funny to me that be facing my biggest fear I also overcame my biggest struggle.
This is a principle that I have lived by since I was a young 20 something insecure college kid. Do the scary stuff. Much easier said then done but it was truly the do what scared you mentality that advanced my life. Of course I still did lots of breathing, mindset and speech techniques to help. But the overarching theme or message that I preach is to learn how to public speak and out yourself out there.
