Many of us live a life like that. It is only a crisis that shakes us up and we give a feeble response, if at all. Otherwise life goes on in a passive sliding mode. Many people believe that stammering affects our attitude (-initiative, to be specific) MUCH more than it does our communication. Over the years we lose our sense of initiative, faith in ourselves..and keep waiting for “right” moment and “right” friends.
But it is possible to self-start yourself anytime you want. Beginning with small goals, by reviewing these goals frequently, fine-tuning them and by changing our psycho-social environment. This morning I came across a very good write up on web elaborating these ideas. It will take just 10 minutes. Please read it before you start your day..
