A. Breakthrough with One-for-One

What a fantastic celebration of Founder's Day throughout the month of October in our District. The Toastmasters' spirit of sharing is alive! With each member inviting a friend to witness a toastmasters meeting or event, YOU have made a difference. Many of our guests have even signed up as members!

Keep the One-for-One spirit alive for the rest of the term! Tell-A-Friend about toastmasters everytime before we attend our club meetings...because they deserve to know what Toastmasters can do for them.

B. Believe...and have Confidence

How many time have we lose confidence in doing a project speech? We can become more confident by preparing and practicing our speeches at toastmasters. When we develop our communication skills by completing the ten basic speeches, our confidence enables us to perform our best.

As much as 95% of the people around us don't believe in themselves as they should. Most people feel that they are not good enough. The truth is that there is enormous potential within us to do much more.

Believe in yourself, and help your members believe in themselves. Push yourselves a little more outside your comfort zone. Help a friend succeed.

Take a moment to ponder. Start believing in yourself today. And experience the breakthrough...in your life!

C. Not to be missed...JB Semi-annual Convention

It is time for us to meet...at the JB Semi-Annual Convention from 17-19 November 2000. Let's celebrate our No.1 District achievements with the Hall of Fame Presentation. We will also be giving out the earlybird CTM/ATM as well as the Membership awards (current term 2000-2001) at the District Council Meeting on 17 November 2000. Not to be missed will be the District Humorous and Evaluation Speech Contests.

District Conventions are excellent for fun, fellowship and learning. Come for a breakthrough experience at Johor Bahru!
