At a recent meeting of the National Speakers Association, platform
personality Joel Weldon demonstrated what “You Power” is all
about. He actually gave the same speech twice. The first was
peppered with “I’s” and it received polite applause. Then he
repeated his address, changing the wording to include “you” as
many times as possible. What a dynamic turnaround! Weldon
received a standing ovation.

Make a transcript of your most recent presentation. Now circle
every “I” and every “you.” What is the ratio? If it’s not ten to
one in favor of “you,” rewrite your speech.
