The power of some

“All or nothing can leave you with a lot of nothing”- a phrase that caught my eyes and thinking deeper about it compelled me to discuss this with my fellow Toastmasters. As a result, I kept the theme of our latest Toastmasters Evening as “The Power of some”- an evening where we discussed how small things can have long-lasting effects in our lives, and how sometimes all it takes is a small push to get the ball rolling.

The evening was complimented nicely with two exciting speeches- one by TM Shams and the other by TM Johnston. While Shams took head on our biggest fear of giving an impromptu speech focusing on how not to lose the essence of your own supplies in your speech, on the other hand Johnston had an interesting take on how attractive effects one’s successes and failures in people’s lives.

The second half of the evening was hosted by the Table Topic Master of the evening TM Johannes who asked people to share simple impromptu stories in their lives, which might be a small event or habit in their lives but ended up affecting their lives significantly; and surely the other toastmasters and guests did not disappoint sharing some novel and interesting life events. The evening was capped off with some useful feedback from other toastmasters on how can we all improve further as a public speaking group and continue to strive forward here at Toastmasters Aachen.
