Thinking in pictures to create your signature TALK is paramount. I'm referring to the signature TALK that people will pay you to present. That unique speech you can put a price tag on. Creating a masterpiece is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Albert Einstein did it to create life-altering inventions to change the world. We see Einstein as a genius, but he claimed to have no special talent, he just visualized things! In simple he used his imagination. Could we have the same characteristics as Einstein? Heck yes! Einstein was known for his clear view of physics and the determination to solve them. He had the discipline allowing his imagination to "run amuck", and every achievement led to another. His wild imagination was a mere stepping-stone for the next discovery.
Visualization is the key in creating and designing your brilliant signature TALK. Your priceless imagination is worth its weight in gold. Imagination works best when you're relaxed and creative mood with ideas bouncing around. I use it in all aspects of life especially in the studio as a radio jock and talk show host. Radio is audio, and you have to use "theater of the mind" to get my point across, quickly. We literally have seconds to talk on the front or back of a song, and in that time, you better use every word wisely. When used properly the listener takes a phrase or sentence into their own personal intellectual property of visualization. Comics use this method with precision to make us laugh. When composing your speech or TALK, allow your mind to run-amuck with alternative ways of telling your story. This gives you room to test out what works and what won't work. When writing your speech your internal reality goes through the motions of your introduction, the body of your speech and conclusion. When we work with clients to nail a performance, we visualize many scenarios, like pulling the body of the speech together from the conclusion and vice versa. It broadens the scope of what you can offer to your audience.
When writing your signature TALK, use your imagination like crazy! A good speech can move the speaker as much as the audience member via a collaboration of chemistry. It's you knowing what words and phrases to give at the right moment. At times this means revising your speech in while in progress, to satisfy your audience. You can memorize this signature speech or TALK through pictures in your mind as well. Visualizing what you want to say and how you want to say it through these vivid pictures in the mind is the secret in delivering the best speech. Albert Einstein let his imagination run up and down the aisle of solutions and scenarios when his inventions came to life. We teach people interested in public speaking to imagine themselves into a successful outcome. As a good public speaker, you have to decide what's important to the audience and realize what you want out of it. Your imagination is the invitation to create incredible discoveries in your own little world of genius.
