Saying Goodbye in Brisbane.....
The Last 5 days I spent in the spread out city of Brisbane. I unfortunately didn't get to see very much the city as I attended a McGuire course held in Hotel Watermark, which I don't mean to sound like a bad thing. Doing a course has never been a bore, and I am sure it never will be. The different kinds of people I meet, and the changes I observe in those people never seizes to amaze me. I take my hat of to all these brave people, especially those who have to face the world's reaction of more than just a stutter. But it's not all bad! One almost cannot believe how much fun it can be to work hard, get results, and truly appreciate those results. I wonder it that is not what life is about? Isn't life about searching for the right input of behavior, resulting in the most favorable outcome and then appreciating that to the ultimate extend? The trick is to determine the correct source,quality and duration of input for the desirable outcome. And this may only be determined through action, persistence, making changes and having faith. And definitely not from just talking and thinking about it. Anyhow, that is my theory for today.
I am at the end of my tour of New Zealand and Australia, and I am heading off to the UK tonight! Just that thought releases emotions of excitement, and a little bit of fear. To reduce that fear is a matter of collecting the correct information and confirming that information as true. That will reduce the amount of unknowns and abracadabra, fear less, excitement more! I had a great time and I would like to thank the 1507 people I have engaged in conversation with. Especially the one's who gave me smile, and a extra bit of their time. I feel that I have grown in my speech ability's and skill, and I looking forward to building on that success. Sincere thanks to everyone I met, friends and especially my family who supports me.
Europe, here I come! Kee - yaaah!
