In order to get the most out of your efforts to become a good speaker and to get it with rapidly and dispatch, three things are essential:
FIRST: START WITH A STRONG AND PERSISTANT DESIRE
This is of far more importance than you probably realize. If an instructor could look into your mind and heart now and ascertain the depth of your desires he could foretell, almost with certainty, the swiftness of progress you will make. If your desire is pale and flabby, your achievements will also take on that hue and consistency but, if you go after your subject with persistence, and with the energy of bulldog after a cat, nothing underneath the Milky Way will defeat you think of what it may mean to you socially. It will increase your personal influence, of the leadership it will give you. And it will give you leadership more rapidly than almost any activity you can think of or imagine.
