My Experience with Toastmasters

Around 2 and a half years back was when I joined toastmasters,The reason: Just to be able to speak in front of people. I would have racy heart and butterflies in my stomach at just the thought of public speaking. But it was more than confidence in public speaking that I got. Some of the many things are:

  1. Confidence in myself
    There were so many things that I thought I could not do but did them eventually. Speaking in front of a diverse audience, running a meeting, running a contest, a club, etc. With the support of my club mates and toastmasters community I did all those things. Continuously pushing my limit made me believe that I can do anything I set my eyes to.
  2. Endless opportunities
    You will be surprised to realize how limited your thoughts are when you interact with people from around the world. I often get feeling that I belong to two different worlds.
  3. Endless opportunities
    I always wanted to do something of my own. But never thought I could do it. But by working as the president of “Buddies” I was able to explore myself like my strength, my weaknesses as a leader and it led me to realize about so many things I am capable of doing.

It’s a very cliched statement but I must say that joining Toastmasters was the best decision of my life.
