I am a member of this awesome club called Toastmasters. It's a club where people share the common goal at becoming better versions of themselves by developing communication and leadership skills. I really enjoy public speaking and believe it's very important skill to have.
The first one was my icebreaker speech and so it was very similar to my speech at STAR.
My second speech given here is supposed to be focused on organization. The intro is very long. Being so long some of the transitions are lost or blurred a bit. I have to work on that. Also in the beginning I am super nervous and talk quickly which cause some of my words to be a little mumbled I suppose you could say.
The reticular activating system, or the R.A.S. is the system that literally forms our worlds as we know it. I'm not going to say any more. You have to listen to the speech yourself. It isn't very long. The camera lady was a wee shaky. Other than that, enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
I hope you enjoyed it and I really like feedback. Good or bad. Here are some links you can visit if you want some more info!!
Live well, Eric

I remember the day and place I first heard this scripture. An evangelist from Japan had come to church and used it to paint his point. "Those who lead many to righteousness will shine like stars forever." There is something attractive about, “…shine like stars forever.” I like to reflect on my life and tell about a time that visually tells a story for quotes like this. However, for me, I wasn’t led by just one person to better living, more so by many. If I must give one person the credit it would be without a doubt Jesus, which in itself is a beautiful mystery. However, the purpose of this isn’t to convert anyone to Christianity, only to share my reality. There were many people along the way of my waywardness who have lead and guided to me in the direction of the different chapters of my life. Starting with my parents. My mom worked diligently to bring as many positive influences as she could into the globe of my childhood. Richard Bigham was a soft-spoken and r
“Babe, is it hot in here? I think I’m starting to sweat.” I said on our way to the wedding. “Stop thinking about the race, You’ve been looking at that map and getting yourself all worked up.” My girlfriend replied from the driver's seat. Days before the race I started feeling the tight stomach and the itchy heart. It’s been a long offseason and today was the beginning. It certainly didn’t disappoint. We pulled up to the Jewish Community Center in Columbus, Ohio where Memorial Day Mayhem is located. This is the first of five amazing races in the Ohio OCR Grand Slam. The course is fast and technical. In its 3.1 miles, it hosts 40 obstacles set up in groups. There is a more explosive section with burpees, short monkey bars. and tire flips. A trail run section. Water run, balance section and strength section with undercarriage, log carry, tire pull and rope climb, just to name a few. As far as spectating goes, there is a great place inside to get out of the sun if need be, a k
While I was in transition to my new life this was written. It is the beginning of my journey to where I am today. The Beginning Days come then go, evening then morning, a new day has come. The heaven at dawn is over, now I will live in the light until the heaven at dusk arrives. The time of twilight truly is surreal. Majestic, magnificent, cosmic and enlightening, to say the least. Two heavens, one light, one dark. We enjoy both of them. We may be blind in the darkness, even blind in the light. Too much darkness, not enough light or too much light, not enough darkness, all benefit our cosmic, our interstellar existence. To enjoy life on all levels. When we gain an appreciation for all creation, we will be perfect. Enjoy your ignorance with no regrets. Enjoy your wisdom with no shame. Live to please and pleasure ourselves, we are selfish. Then we no longer receive pleasure from, from these things. The pleasures of old, we feel a new existence. It is Christ who came to earth. We a
