The Man, The Boy and The Donkey

A Man and his son were once going with their Donkey to market. As they were walking along by its side a countryman passed them and said: "You fools, what is a Donkey for but to ride upon?" So the Man put the Boy on the Donkey and they went on their way.

But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said: "See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he rides." So the Man ordered his Boy to get off, and got on himself.

But they hadn't gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: "Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son trudge along." Well, the Man didn't know what to do, but at last he took his Boy up before him on the Donkey.

By this time they had come to the town, and the passers-by began to jeer and point at them. The Man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at. The men said: "Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey with you and your hulking son?" The Man and Boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought and they thought, till at last they cut down a pole, tied the donkey's feet to it, and raised the pole and the donkey to their shoulders.

They went along amid the laughter of all who met them till they came to Market Bridge, when the Donkey, getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the Boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the Donkey fell over the bridge, and his fore-feet being tied together he was drowned. "That will teach you," said an old man who had followed them:

The moral of this story?
"Please all, and you will please none."

As a professional speaker, you have a lot of "noise" in your ears. Stay true to yourself and to your core principles - not others.

What are you intentions for your speaking?

Your intentions are so important when it comes to your speaking career.

How are you communicating to those around you? Are you casting a big net out there, looking to gain bits of information that can help you be better - or are you socializing? It's hard to catch the BIG ONE, but still, it's important to seek out those individuals that can give you an advantage.

Here's a few paragraphs from Chapter One of The Inside-Out Speaker. We talk about Intentions, and learning what's really important as you go day to day in your speaking career. 

- - - - 

What about your bookings, phone calls and social media?

The last of which is what you should really be listening to - the true revealers, the non-verbal constructive communication markers. It takes effort for your audience to make a call or to go online and comment to a blog, or other social media platform. When your speaking career is hitting the mark, you should be just as active socially as you are when presenting.

Uh-oh. You can feel it now and I know it’s unsettling. It’s already starting to crumble, isn’t it?

And your colleagues, who you think “get you” and understand what you’re doing every day - their advisement is supportive as well. And it’s because you’re competing for the same clients, the same recommendations, the same rewards and more. It’s weakening your foundation. Never trust anyone who wants what you have.

The walls are straining as if made of straw, and when they go, your house will soon be gone. You can’t start over. You’ve worked too hard.

In truth, if you don’t get your foundation fixed, it’s not going to matter anyway. The reality is that supportive communication is a lie, whether it’s driven by jealousies, politics or other indulgent emotions - and it’s going to kill your professional speaking career if you let it. 

Do you remember a childhood fable called “The Three Little Pigs?”

Well, my version has the big, bad wolf tracking you down. He represents the end of the line for you – curtains. He’s hungry for a Little Pig ham sandwich.

But you think you’re a little bit smarter than him, so you’ve taken refuge in your poorly built straw jungle hut with a (yes, you guessed it) crumbling, supportive foundation. Oh, and he’s lurking right outside your door!

"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."

"No, no, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin."

"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your hut in."

Oh, my. This isn’t going well for you right now. He just might do it. But really, how much worse can it get? Oh yeah. The Little Pig ham sandwich.

Lloyd Box, a communications expert in the field of resistance to change theory and linguistic markers, says this about indulgent conversaiton and supportive communication.

“Narcissism is all about oneself; the ego. When it comes to supportive communication, the narcissistic speaker thinks it’s not bull. They think “Man I’m great!,” and they’ll get worse.”

In other words, you’re about to be done in by yourself, supportive communication and the big, bad wolf. . .

When you're struggling as a speaker, fixing things sometimes means going back to the behaviors and examining your own values. Makes sense, right? What is it that you're trying to do, and is it coming from the right place? Am I trying to change peoples ideas (minds)  when I'm really not on board myself? Examining your own motivations - your intentions - is important, that's why we lead with it as Chapter One of The Inside-Out Speaker.
