  • Life without challenging tasks seems pointless and boring to me.
  • Accomplishing difficult tasks provides us with a sense of fulfillment, one of the best feelings in the world.
  • Today, I want to discuss a task I never thought I could achieve: winning a public speaking competition.
  • Winning this competition was challenging because of my childhood fear of public speaking.
  • I discovered this fear in the fourth grade when my teacher asked me to read the news in front of the class.
  • On stage, I choked and couldn’t speak for more than 10 seconds, leading to laughter from many classmates and exacerbating my fear.
  • I avoided speaking in front of the class for a long time, often pretending to be sick to skip news reading turns.
  • However, recognizing the necessity of public speaking as a skill, I knew I had to overcome this fear.
  • My mother played a crucial role in pushing me to conquer this fear by enrolling me in a speech competition in the eighth grade.
  • Initially, she had me practice in front of her, and I spoke without any problems.
  • She then invited some of her friends, encouraging me to speak in front of them, gradually increasing my comfort level.
  • Practicing for an hour every evening boosted my confidence.
  • On the day of the competition, I felt strangely confident, speaking fluently and without hesitation, similar to how I spoke in front of my mother’s friends.
  • The highlight was when the results were announced, and I discovered I had secured the first position.
  • It was a surreal moment, making me immensely proud and reinforcing the belief that hard work can make anything possible.
