Happy Lighten up Monday! This is a fun and true story about being invited to one of my first corporate speaking events.
I told this story at our SCORRE™ Speaker Training Intensive as a set up to a key question every speaker must ask. “Will the content of my talk meet the needs of my audience?” I certainly learned one of the things that met the needs of my wife Diane.
This morning I was reminded of how much I love being around real people who are willing to acknowledge imperfection and work toward excellence. Nothing destroys relationships, or impedes growth more than pretending to be perfect. As you will see in this clip, it also makes you look funny!
Today’s lighten up Monday clip taken from Ken’s DVD, Fully Alive.
It’s Mighten up Londay. I’ve lived with a low level of Dyslexia/ADHD most of my life. I often have to rewrite these posts several times to correct all the mixed up letters and sentences. When I heard my friend, Paul Aldrich – who also struggles with the problem – sing this song, I thought I would die laughing.
If you have Dyslexia I hope you find comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Welcome to the club. If you don’t have Dyslexia, sooner or later you will exhibit some of the symptoms. If you can’t see the humor in this, that is a sadder disorder all of its own.
Any friends out there who live in my world?
How do you deal with it?
Can you laugh about it?
It’s Lighten Up Monday! This clip is a little longer than normal, but I think you will enjoy every moment. This was a skit filmed in Dixon, Tennessee for Chonda’s video project “Be Afraid, Very Afraid!” I play Chonda’s husband. She is trying to tell me that she is going to have a baby. . . ENJOY!
