One of the biggest problems with today’s presenters, is that they are so worried about the words they use, how they use them and when they use them. When we do this, we lose our spontaneity, naturalness and passion. I know many professional coaches disagree with me on this point. And I would agree that in some cases carefully choosing your words may be important.
However, Jamie Oliver, the TED Prize winner of 2010, in his presentation shows exactly what you can do when you stop worrying about your words and just let your passion, enthusiasm and determination come through. You become AWESOME.
This talk at TED is just inspiring. It shows that if you truly believe in something, whether it is a cause, a product or service, by just letting your passion out you can turn peoples minds and hearts.
Who cares that Jamie was almost running around the stage? Who cares that he was carry note cards (I remember how much criticism Stan Sigman got for using cards on stage at the iPhone launch) what really mattered here was that Jamie truly believes what he was saying, his passion, enthusiasm and sheer presence made this talk one of the best ever at TED.
So, sit back, relax and be inspired:
