Cruise Ship Speaker - Belew

Cruise Ship Speaker – Belew

Continuing on in my log on how to become a cruise ship speaker.

I show up early. I always do when I have the time. I like to pace the place, think, sometimes say things out loud, get myself into a flow of sorts. In the sports world it would be psyching myself up.

I fully realize all these folk are on vacation and are not expecting wonders. 100% of them are just hoping to pass time. There’s a lot of time on cruise ships. And my talk is just another way to do that … to stay out of the sauna, away from the gym, to pass time till dinner or till the movie starts. And if they learn just one thing, anything, well that’s a bonus. But nobody has any expectations … except me.

I want to give them something. A nugget maybe, some insight, a thought, an inspiration, a bit of knowledge, even wisdom or just a reason to come back for the other two. I plan to put myself out there. “Throw your heart over the bar and your body will follow,” is what pole vaulters says. I plan to put my heart out there. On Social Media?! Yeah, on Social Media.

Point: The law of blogging – if you don’t have something to contribute, don’t hit publish = if I don’t have something to say, sit down. I have something to say.
