Dyslexia is no laughing matter, but it can be. I’ve struggled all my life with reading difficulties. I took special ed grading class in grade school. If my high school English teachers ever knew I wrote a book, they would laugh. This video comes from a Get Paid to Speak champ camp when I’m just making light of my difficulty as it relates to being in the speaking business. CLICK TO PLAY VIDEO!

Can you laugh at yourself?

P.S. Want more laughs?
That explains it! Great piece and very encouraging.
I can see humour IN OTHER PEOPLE. But not in myself. What I mean by that is I don’t consider that I use humour in my daily talk AT ALL. People who know me say that i do. One of my friend;s says that I have – what he calls “dry humour”. For the reason I have just mentioned I do not enter Humorous Speech Contests within the Toastmasters Programme. But I will enter International Speech contests. I consider that if I can’t see the humour in what I say and do -why should I expect others to do so?
If I could get someone to convince me that I actually can present humour I would enter Humorous Speech contests. Can you (from over there – thousands of kilometres away from where I am) tell me how I could go about getting someone TO CONVINCE me that I can present humour?
