WE HAVE WITH US TONIGHT

Condensed from The Rotarian
Dale Carnegie
Whose widely known course in public speaking has made selfconfident speakers of over 55,00o business men and women

You have been invited to make a speech, and have come to me with perplexing questions. I'll try to answer them.
"Shall I accept the invitation?" Yes. It will be a lot of fun, and a thrilling experience. Indeed, if I were you, I wouldn't even wait for an invitation to make a speech. For the good of my soul, I'd seize the first opportunity to make one voluntarily-and every legitimate opportunity thereafter: office conference, club meeting, church gathering, Parent-Teachers meeting. For public speaking is a sure way to leadership. I know hundreds of men who have created more prestige by one five-minute talk than they had by five years of grinding work. Once successfully master an audience with a short talk and thereafter you'll be a better master of yourself.
You won't make a brilliant speech. But don't let that worry you. Few people do. If you doubt me, turn on your radio, or listen to the talks in the House or Senate at Washington.
"But I never faced an audience in my life. I'm afraid I'll faint." Oh,
no, you won't. I have watched g5,ooo business men and women face audiences for the first time. Only one fainted. Of him I prophesied right then that within a few weeks he would actually enjoy talking in public. He did.
Of course you will be nervous at first. Everyone is. Bryan was. So were Theodore Roosevelt and Lloyd George. But there are certain things that will help you develop courage in advance. One is practice. Practice. Practice. Where? Anywhere. When I was riding
