May 1 Question What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
Well I must say being a bit of an introvert I struggled early with all aspects of language; verbal, physical, subtle, the smoulder, etc. So I learned to take it slow and easy. I’ve always been a bit of a slow starter, but make no mistake I’m in this for the long haul.
I realized in junior high gym class we’d have to run distances. My gm teacher, she knew me from being a teacher in elementary school with a wicked sense of humor, mocked me as I quickly fell to the back of the pack. But I showed her and beat the crowd as I eventually passed each of them to finish first.
Okay, back to language. I’m far better with the written than the spoken word. Dealing with people is a bit of a challenge sometimes but I learned a long time ago to ‘Fake It Until I make it’. It works for me. I found the balance and can produce results and in the end this is what matters. It’s not necessarily how you start it’s how you finish.
Question Do you consider yourself more of an extrovert or an introvert?
