Words 73-75

73. Raconteur I teach students to steer clear of power point presentations and other time honored, but dull speaking habits. Be yourself and the best way to do that is to weave stories which illustrate your reason for being on stage today. My picture in mind is a campfire complete with marshmallows and storytelling. What’s yours? It is not whether you understand the power of attraction. It is all about whether you can make it happen in your life. 74. Sanguine Sometimes there are those with old world vocabularies or lists that always seem to include a word, even though it has fallen off the power list of many, including me. Optimist is the power word that is a viable replacement. So what do you see in your mind when you think optimist. Better not ignore me because this might be on the test coming after word 80 (hint: if a teacher makes a bold prediction like this, he will go out of his way to make sure he keeps his promise). 75. Tangible Can you touch it? If you can, it is tangible.
