I've always known I was an awkward dork.
I'm too loud, I put my foot in my mouth ALL the time, I can't pull off cool or smooth or poised to save my life. I'm always the weirdest person in every group, and even among my closest friends, I still feel like a little bit of an alien.
In fact, because my awkward dork goes everywhere with me, I'm also an awkward dork on stage. But I'll tell you what: This has only been GOOD for me. Where other speakers try so hard to "fit in" and be cool and smooth and poised, I've stopped fighting the awkward dork in me, and embraced it.
I'm not interested in fitting in.
I'm not interested in the status quo.
I'm not interested in pretending to be something or somebody I'm not.
How about you? Want to learn how to embrace and celebrate the awkward dork in you?
