This week's installment of the Speak with HEART blog series is about the "R." "R" is for Radiance and no, it's not a new age-y thing! It's the energy you bring to the platform that is uniquely you yet amplified.
As I've said in other posts, audiences will overlook many goofs or shortcomings, but they won't give you the time of day if you show up with less than 100% energy.
That being said, I'm not talking about showing up all hyped and over-the-top.
What I am talking about is bringing yourself fully to the platform – fully you, fully present, fully engaged, fully expressed and fully enjoying the experience.
Speakers and performers who impact their audiences the most are those who give it all they've got not holding anything back. Now, for some people that may look like humor or enthusiasm. For others it might look like fierce passion or calm intensity.
Whatever your unique energy is – your Radiance – AMPLIFY it!
…Close your eyes and take a moment to get centered with a few deep breaths. Imagine that your radiance has a dimmer switch like a light. Now slowly turn up the brilliance. Notice the difference in energy output when it is on fully bright vs. low and dim. Do you think you would have greater impact, be remembered for the right reasons and touch more lives if you showed up fully radiant?
And…This doesn't happen overnight for most people. It requires an effort to expand your habit zone – your usual way of being – over time. It's the practice of stepping into and being the bigger you you know you were put here to be.
And when you can bring that Radiance to your on-stage, on-video and networking efforts, WOW! what a difference it will make in your like-factor and magnetism!
