Fwd: Re: [neurosemanticsofstuttering] Re: Joe Biden’s speech to AIS At times, Joe Biden became emotional as he recounted his experiences with stuttering.
It was heartening to hear him speak about “overcoming” stuttering because many persons (within the stuttering community) tend to refrain from speaking in such a vein. It has certainly been my experience that it is possible to move from a place where stuttering impacts immensely upon one’s life to a position where one is able to lead an extremely active, fulfilling and expansive lifestyle.
Over the years, I have witnessed criticism of persons who claim to have successfully trodden such paths. Indeed, some detractors have even expressed the view that such assertions can be harmful to other PWS because family members, friends, co-workers, employers etc may expect all PWS to follow suit.
As I have opined in a separate post (that I recently submitted to the group), I feel it is important for those of us who have become more effective communicators to share our stories. I truly believe that others can gain inspiration (and encouragement) from the tales we have to tell.
Joe Biden also wrote:
“I learned so much from having to deal with stuttering. It gave me an insight into other people’s pain – other people’s suffering. It made me understand that everyone has something they’re fighting to overcome, and sometimes hide.”
During recent years, I have shared my story with many hundreds of audiences, comprising persons who do not stutter. My listeners frequently tell me that (having heard how I dealt with my adversity) they are encouraged to address personal issues that exist within their own lives. Fear and self-doubt are not confined to persons who stutter – they are common to so many people.
Jag gläder mig åt att USAs nuvarande vice president, Joe Biden, är en person som vet vad det innebär att ha stamning i sitt tal. Och talar om det helt öppet. Att ha benägenhet för stamning i sitt tal är därför inget absolut hinder för att nå en topposition i ett samhälle. Detta är bra att känna till om man förleds att misstro sin egen framtid redan i skolan. Man kan alltid testa hur bra talare man kan bli genom träning. Man kan göra detta genom bl. a. TALAkademin, Toastmasters, McGuire, etc.
TRÄNING GER FÄRDIGHET!
Man kan själv testa om det gäller allmänt – eller bara under viss villkor.
