I recently saw a speaker enter the room with a set of tools so specialized that there was no possible way for anyone else to have given that talk.
It wasn’t that he was speaking about ideas that had never before been stated or even that he was any more interesting as a person than other people. What he was, was a completely true representation of himself.
Sure, he had done the work to become a great speaker. But that isn’t what I will remember. I remember what he came to teach and I’ll remember him — the guy. That was one hell of a performance.
No one can do you as well as you. No one knows what you think and what you know as well as you. And absolutely no one has a voice like yours.
