Why I am Thankful for Toastmasters?

If you love public speaking and have a commitment to become a talented speaker; I can assure you that Toastmasters can be a great investment in yourself.  Well, I would like to elucidate my predilection by three important aspects of this organization: positiveness, leadership and opportunity. 

Toastmasters is an organization where people come to learn and to share inspiring stories.  Members are encouraged to always be positive toward every member of the club.  Ever since I became a member of the Sunset Toastmasters at Pearl River, NY and every time I attend a meeting there; I always feel inspired to continue following a positive path.

Another aspect of Toastmasters is leadership.  In a world where leaders are in charge of the direction of society, it is imperative that young leaders associate with people who can help them becoming great leaders.  Toastmasters is an organization that can help create effective leaders with integrity by encouraging them to be responsible and to be positive.

Last, there are many opportunities to increase our knowledge and skills. We have the advantage to master our craft by giving speeches and listening to free speeches to become talented speakers and effective leaders.

Joel Osteen once said “You need to associate with people who inspire you, people that challenge you to raise higher, people that make you better. Don’t waste your valuable time with people that are not adding to your growth.  Your destiny is too important.”

Toastmasters offers that opportunity to be around people that will support and help you improve in all aspects of your life.  Thus, I am very thankful to be a member of Toastmasters.
