Here are 10 ideas on how you can develop more interesting stories for including in your public speaking or other oral communication occasions. These will help you whether speaking one on one, in meetings, ingroups or more formal events.

1. Listen to a speaker, such as a teacher, minister, social worker, politician, or any other speaker whose purpose is to persuade an audience for some purpose. As you listen, take notes on the illustrations the speaker uses. Were they interesting? The kind that really stimulated the audience mentally and/or emotionally? If so, why? If not, why not?
2. If the speaker you heard did not use illustrations find or recall at least one human interest illustration he could have used to support the theme of his speech. Tell this story either to a real or imagined audience and state the point it supports.
3. Listen to another speaker. Compare and contrast the illustrations this speaker used with those used by the other speaker. Always analyze why a story is weak or effective.
4. In a section of your speech notebook keep notations, or clippings of human interest illustrations on a theme of your choice.
5. Write in your own words a human interest illustration from history, biography, literature, a magazine, the news, or any other reading source.
6. Do the same from any oral source, such as other speakers, television, radio, and so on.
7. List the themes of a few stories which you think have been told so often they have become trite. Choose one of those themes and see if you can find a story which will not be trite to support it.
8. Tell the most interesting story you ever heard or read. Take only from two to five minutes for this   (depending upon the amount of time the instructor has for it.) Keep the story moving! Put in interesting details but don’t waste words. Try for a dramatic effect upon the audience.
9. Study a few daily newspapers. Select several human interest illustrations. For each illustration write the theme it would support best. Choose the most effective illustration you found and tell it to other peopl. After others have done likewise frankly discuss the merits or weaknesses of any illustration used.
10. Read a biography of some person you admire. Relate orally the incident from this biography which impressed you most vividly.

10 Tips for More Enthusiastic Speaking

The habits of enthusiasm can be developed for use in being more persuasive when public speaking.

Here are some ways to develop them:
1. By closely observing human nature and trying to determine what makes people ‘”tick.”
2. Liking people, and showing an active interest in them at all times.
3. Being active with ideas and people to a point where one has no time for aloofness or indifference.
4. By having a positive, optimistic nature and attitude.
5. By being super-earnest in everything, but pleasant and happy at the same time.
6. By putting the whole heart, mind, body, and spirit into everything one does.
7. Getting the “I-can” attitude. Thoughts of quitting or indul¬gences in self-pity kill enthusiasm.
8. By not permitting any type of criticism to dampen the  spirits.
9. By thinking about your subject, and living it, until a burn¬ing, almost obsessional desire to communicate your ideas and feelings is acquired.
10. By being in love with every minute of life and living it completely.

Enthusiasm’s worst enemies are probably pessimism, negative criticism, fear and indifference. An enthusiastic speaker avoids these characteristics. Without hesitation or apologizing for being alive, he plunges right into his speech, so desirous of communicating an idea, nothing can stop him! Almost obsessed with an idea, his eyes gleam as he speaks, his voice and body reflect his spirit. He doesn’t think about how he stands,or where he puts his hands. He’s not worried about how he breathes, or if he breathes. Communicating is all important.
Not that knowing how to stand, or breathe, or how to use the body is worthless, but a person, while speaking, should not give those minor values conscious attention. His whole mind, heart, and soul should be flaming with the great idea he desires to communicate.
Then he’ll be somewhat like a woman who jumps up on a chair when a mouse appears. In her case safety is the big idea. Instantly it becomes an obsession with her. And she’s not concerned about how she got on that chair. She probably couldn’t tell if she was asked.
Similarly, an enthusiastic speaker is not concerned about how he communicates his ideas. His fervent desire is to have his ideas and feelings accepted. And when this is his main purpose he speaks far more persuasively than when he tries to make “fancy” speeches with graceful gestures and a lovely voice.

As with all thing in public speaking the enthusiasm needs to genuine to be effective.

How much does a 65 inch Hitachi rear projection TV is HD. two years ago and in perfect condition?

As a TV before any maniac, I would say it's worth … example … if you have a TV classic from that time … $ 700. Sorry for low prices, but today, 65-inch 1080p rear projection TV cost you just around $ 2000. As age older (televisions and computers have both a lifetime of updates a few months), I think it's a good return.
