Hi Meghan, I'm the way I am because I'm so devilishly handsome! Ha, ha, ha! I wish...! Really, I credit a LOT of other people with helping me develop a positive attitude toward life. It started with two people in the National Stuttering Association (both of which deserve an entire paper written about them!), and continued on into many other people in the NSA and Toastmasters. ... Motivation is essentially an internal process, not an external one. The external factors are probably role models, and I've had a bunch of them in my life. You can LEARN things intellectually, but you gotta FEEL things with your heart. And the essence of feeling things is repetition... positive experiences... over and over and over... The NSA and Toastmasters are wonderful organizations for a person who stutters to gain those positive experiences. ... Thanks for reading my paper Meghan. I hope you're enjoying this wonderful online conference!
