Everybody learns moral values from different experiences of his/her life. Here is an experience, which was a turning point to my life. My speech was a laughable to listeners when I was in my 9th grade year. Learning how to speak in front of a crowd was a most significant moment in my life because I learned basic skills like speaking, facing an audience, and memorizing sentences. My English teacher paved the way for me to be a better speaker. It all started when she told me to speak some words about my achievements in school life in front of a crowd.
I felt so nervous, and I said al the achievements the wrong way. When I moved in front of the crowd, my heart beat increased. My hands became sweaty. I felt so cold. I thought to say many good things about my teachers, but I spoke all the wrong things. I did not know what happened to me. My speech became laughable in the class. The teacher understood my problem. She told me about her first experience of speech in her class. In her first speech, she felt so nervous and cried in front of the crowd. It happened in her 7th grade year. Her experience relaxed me, but I was still feeling so depressed.
My cheer came to me and sat with me. She taught me about thesis and writing techniques. She gave me a book to learn the basic skills of speech. I bought books to learn basic skills of speech. Every day, I spent some time reading the text books for speech. I watched many speeches on television and the Internet. From the speeches, I gained great knowledge about major issues facing society. One day I watched a speech by A. B. J. Abdul Koalas, the ex-president of India. The speech was about his dreams about a developed India. I felt patriotic when I watched the speech.
I was inspired to be able to give a speech like him, so I practiced my speech by speaking in front of a mirror, and with time I became better. Research and practice helped me to speak better. With help from my mother, I studied the basic skills of facing an audience. She taught me some meditation tips to lower fear. I performed my second speech on Independence Day at our student’s club celebration, but the audience did not give me a positive feedback. When my mother saw me crying in my room, she came in to calm me down. She motivated me by telling a story about the first speech f Mahatma Gandhi, the father of India.
He became so nervous when he performed his first speech at the age of 28. When he began to speak, he felt so nervous that he could not say a single word. It was an interesting story. I also experienced similar feelings. I read the autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi, and I learned more about him. I learned how to face audiences from the book. M. K Gandhi was a lawyer, and one incident in the book influenced me was that his first case in the court room. While speaking in front of the crowd, he became so nervous and anxious. All of them gauged and his client scolded him.
This incident make him a better speaker and his story gives me courage to face audience. In order to reduce fear, I learned basic skills of meditations like yoga, which is a generic term for the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines, originated in ancient India with a view to attain a state of permanent peace. Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means “union” and is interpreted as “union with the divine”. More meditation gave me more peace and friend. I was not good at remembering things. Once, I met a man who worked with y dad. He has a B.
A in psychology. He taught me different techniques of memorization. I studied different ways to remember things. There are many different ways to study long paragraphs, long patterns of words, timeliness, etc. The most interesting way to help memorization is story making. With this method I make a story by connecting words or sentences in essays. I include the most interesting characters in the story, so that way, I cannot forget the story or essay. I learned this technique to learn essays for speeches. The memorizing tips also help me to prepare or exams.
First, I learned basic skills of speech from my high school English teacher. Second, I learned how to face an audience without fear. Third I learned how to memorize essays and long speeches. All of these techniques helped me to win in a speech competition. I performed my third speech with a lot of confidence and without fear. When I stood in front of a big crowd, I did not feel any anxiety. The speech titled “Torturing to Indian Women in Our Society. ” I included recent incidents and other major issues in society. I got more knowledge about these things from
Abdul Salaam’s speech. I also mentioned his dreams about India, which was a main point. My speech was an encouraging one to all. I was proud of myself. Everybody appreciated me. I got 500 rupees cash award on that speech. This was the most joyful moment in my life. Self-confidence, hard work, and courage are valuable in life. I learned this lesson from my life’s experience. My speech was a turning point in my life. My experiences to learn speech techniques not only helped me to learn how to speak, but also, I learned moral values to become a perfect man.
