What matters is not if your sanctuary is online or offline. What matters is that community members return to this place. Whatever goes on in the sanctuary may seem weird to outsiders. So will the dinner time rituals in many families when they’re alone - we don’t see them because when we visit we are outsiders.
Most speakers I’ve met have expressed one way or the other, that other people do not understand what it means to be a speaker. But we know. And to us researching for months, traveling far and wide and doing a little dance to fight stage fright is not weird. It’s work, and it is nice to be with others who ‘get it.’
A sanctuary could be a Facebook group where people share their wins, or it could be a flat in Paris, that all community members can freely use when they’re in Paris to speak.
It can be a classroom, a church, a grassy meadow, or a weekly journal. The form doesn’t matter. It only matters that people come together to enact their rituals.
Like I said in the beginning, the book contains much, much more. If this line of thought aligns with your mission as a speaker, then I wholeheartedly recommend reading the whole book.
That’s all for now. I wish you tons of success in your business pursuits and remember that you have tons of speaker colleagues. Call one of them and ask them how they’re doing. They’ll be happier for it. So will you.
See you with a new edition in a week. Thank you for reading.
P.S. I have a favor to ask. The idea of reading books with the eyes of a speaker and sharing the speaker’s take away is new. If you would like to see more, hit the thumbs up.
If this is not your thing, hit the thumbs down.
