Subject: Friendship Meeting on 3 January 2012 - Overcome the Barriers
We are stepping into a brand new year! Happy New Year 2012! Have you set your new year resolution? Do you have barriers that you wish to overcome?
Kieren John Perkins, a former Australian professional swimmer says, "Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals."
Overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves - easier said than done! A lot of effort are required to overcome these barriers. Friendship Toastmasters Club offer us the best environment to overcome our barriers in communication and leadership. We have the opportunity to participate in every club meeting, event or contest to demolish the barriers that we place in front of ourselves.
In our upcoming meeting on 3 January, we will discover ways to overcome our barriers with this great line-up - GE DTM Devikamani Menon, TME Lay Theng; Project Speakers Daphne, Susan and Kwok Hung; Table Topics Evaluator Sivadas & Evaluators Ian, Zaiton and Angeline.
May this new year bring great success to all of us!
