In Public Speaking Be Like Apostle Paul

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

First off here are some things that enthusiasm is not.

Enthusiasm is not noise or high pressure speaking. An enthusiastic speaker may talk louder and faster than the average person, but there can be no set rate or manner. It is entirely a matter of spirit. When the spirit within the speaker is fully and sincerely alive minor points, such as “eye contact” and rate of speaking, seem to adjust themselves.
Neither is enthusiasm a jumpy, “nervous,” push-them-out-of-the-way manner of behaviour. Nor need an enthusiast yield to exaggeration as he may be inclined to do.
Enthusiasm, being a spiritual quality, does not depend upon physical size or strength for its existence. For instance, the Apostle Paul was probably one of the most enthusiastic people who ever lived. He was five feet, one inch tall, and weighed about one hundred and ten pounds. He had “a thorn in the flesh,” yet nothing could daunt his enthusiastic nature. Stoning, jail, shipwreck, hunger, nakedness, whippings — nothing could stifle his enthusiasm to communicate his message. He said to Timothy, “Never lose your sense of urgency in season or out of season.”
Ah enthusiast does constantly feel that the cause he repre¬sents is urgent. Willingly, earnestly, eagerly he works at it. Always he is alert to learn more about his subject because this encourages self-confidence which is so necessary for effective communication.
Some people seem to be conserving their enthusiasm, probably thinking that by using it they will become tired or exhausted. But just the opposite is true. Enthusiasm takes the drudgery out of work. It renews a speaker’s energy and actually rests him. Norman Vincent Peale discovered the stimulating effect of enthusiasm when he said to a statesman who had made seven consecutive speeches, “Aren’t you tired?” And the statesman replied, “No, because I believe absolutely in everything I said in those speeches. I am enthusiastic about my convictions.”
Enthusiasm takes the chloroform out of speaking and injects vibrant life. It not only keeps listeners awake, but it also enlivens them, inspires them to think and feel with the speaker. Sincere enthusiasm in a speech causes people to say, “I could listen to that kind of speaking all night!”
A speaker who is highly enthusiastic about his subject can feel that he is truly serving his listeners by sharing his life with them. He becomes what John G. Shedd, a former President of Marshall Field and Company, would have called a “geyser.”
“I’d rather be a geyser than a mud puddle!” he said, when comparing an enthusiastic person with an unenthusiastic one.

Next week I’ll conculde this series on enthusiasm and provide a list of ideas to help  understand enthusiasm and using it in public speaking.

Copper Speaker
Speaker cable 3.5 mm jack?

I have a very basic 5.1 speaker system I'd like to start using my computer instead of the DVD player that comes with. I have a surround sound sound card ready and all the necessary jacks. The problem is that are 3.5 mm, while the speakers are cable regular speaker (2-wire copper black and one red.) I could not find any adapters to help me with this. Thanks in advance

You just can not connct the output of the soundcard of your PC directly to speakers. You need to connect it to the "receiver" subsystem that drives the speakers. If the Principal Theatre took as input / PDIF, connect the sound card via s / PDIF. If you only have RCA audio (stereo), then connect the audio (3.5 mm) for audio (RCA). You will not be able to get 5.1 channels without as input / PDIF.

Stereo Power
Does a 2004 Mazda 3 stock power stereo speakers replacement system, right? Maybe Kicker or Polk Audio?

Stock stereo, 6-disc CD player dash, 6 speakers (4 in the leg in the 6×8 front and rear doors, 2 tweeters in the eyes front doors). I'm not audiophile, nor a technical Spert. I think I have a blown 6×8 before, and you just want to replace them all with some good thump, but can plug and play into the inventory system / location. You're the best!

yes and no. radio enough power to send speakers to play moderate to low volume, but when you start to crank the volume past halfway, they will sound distorted because the radios internal amp will overwork itself trying to provide the necessary power for the best result you would need an amplifier on
