Meeting #9: Face your Fears

Dear CHUN and FUN members and guests,

“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
-Nelson Mandela

Fear can come in many shapes and sizes – the supernatural, spiders or even your boss. Remember the times when you broke out in cold sweat or adamantly refused to go somewhere or meet someone? Not only is that fear, but that is also living.

Fight or flight – two separate outcomes stemming from fear. FEAR also has two separate meanings – Forget Everything And Run, or Face Everything And Rise.

With Halloween knocking on our doors, telling us “trick-or-treat”, let us face the fear of the unknown, open the door of self-improvement and rise to the occasion. We may not be Conjuring something Insidious during our Halloween meeting, but be prepared to Scream in excitement as we see IT happen.

Meeting #8: Only Jump Off the Edge when You are Able to Fly

only jump off the edge when youre able to fly

Dear CHUN and FUN members and guests,

“Falling’s just another way to fly” – Emilie Autumn

Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard University to cofound Microsoft, setting him on the path to become the wealthiest man in the world. His success story seems to be going against one of the most common advice we have heard along our journey of growing up i.e., learn to walk before you can run.

Should we choose to jump off the edge only when we are able to fly? Or, should we just do it and build wings on the way down?

Come and join us in contemplation of this question, with the theme of “Only Jump Off the Edge When You Are Able To Fly” as we partake in a special Base Camp Tutorial Session to prepare our wings as we take off into the skies of Pathways.

Details are as follows:

Date : 12th October 2017

Meeting #7: Educational Session on Table Topics

Today’s meeting is unlike any other regular club meetings in Sunway Toastmasters Club,  the EXCO has decided to come out with something different today. Instead of having educational session outside of the regular club meetings, the VPE has incorporated an Educational Session in today’s meeting.

We have invited one of our Past Presidents as well as experienced Toastmaster and public speaker Mr. Lincoln Leong, ACS, ALB to conduct an educational session on “How To Be A Better Table Topics Speaker”. Members and guests benefited from Lincoln’s  interesting session as he managed to reduce the fear of impromptu speech by engaging the audiences to try out table topics in a friendly, benevolent atmosphere.

The 3 take home messages shared by Lincoln Leong on how to be a better table topics speaker are:

(1) Treat Table Topics as if you are speaking to a friend.

(2) Take three deep breaths before you start your table topics.

(3) The 5 seconds Rule (If you have an impulse to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds or your brain will kill the idea. — Mel Robbins) 

However, it takes practice to be a better table topic speaker. Therefore, do remember the 3 take home messages and volunteer yourself as the next table topic speaker in our next club meeting!

Cheers,

Christine Choong

Secretary of Sunway Toastmasters Club
