Role of Table Topic Master

There is no dearth of motivation out there in the world. We have movies, biographies, YouTube videos and of course a ticket to the Tony Robbins seminar. In fact, if we think about it, we get enough doses of it in Toastmasters as well. Just look at the theme today – our TMOD has left no stone unturned in infusing a fresh vial of motivation in each of our bloods. So let’s continue the process in our Table Topics session. I am looking for volunteers to make small 1 to 2 minute motivational speeches. Let’s begin.

  1. The best way to predict your future is to create it.
  2. It’s going to be hard but hard does not mean impossible.
  3. Good things take time.
  4. Success is the sum of small efforts repeated.
  5. It’s not whether you get knocked down, it whether you get up.
  6. If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.
  7. A goal without a plan is just a wish.
