Speech: Dancing Your Way to Success

I've spent a couple weeks doing the Toastmasters Humorous Speech Contest circuit.  First the club level, then the area level and finally the division level, where I placed third with this speech.  Admittedly, that's not much of a circuit, especially when you consider there is only one higher level anyway.

The purpose of speech was not to win a contest, although it did win at the club level.  It was second at the area level, but the 1st place winner was unable to compete at the division.  No, the real purpose of the speech was to break through my personal boundaries and be more expressive and less introverted.  I think I accomplished that goal.  I still need to practice my speech technique though.

Thoughts: Dedication and Purpose

The other day I was discussing with friends the topic of purpose.  "How do I find my life's purpose?" was posed as the question that day.  One person responded, "What would you sacrifice your life for?  That's your purpose."  I thought about that, and it didn't seem quite right for me.  Sacrificing your life is a one time event, and can be done with little thought or preparation.  Stepping in front of gun for your child or wife is relatively easy to do on impulse, and it doesn't really solve the problem that your family is in danger (unless the criminal in the scenario is using a muzzle loader and has only one ball.) I said. "Perhaps a better criteria would be this: What would you crawl your way out of the grave for?  That's your life's purpose." 

What in life would you refuse to go to your grave over; that you would fight to stay alive for?  I think that's a purpose.
