We all need to persuade, and convince at times.

It may be in an interview to get into university. You have to display the skills and potential to begin a demanding course.

It could be a job interview. You have to demonstrate you're the right person for the role.

It could be a host of other things.

Sure speaking can be difficult. You will work on this, and on your confidence.

But don't let this one challenge in your life blur the rest of your skills.

You have many worthy abilities, and you'll be lying to yourself if you tell yourself you don't – big mistake.
