Invest to grow

If you were given 86400 dollars a day, what would you do with this windfall?

Buy a car? A lavish bungalow perhaps?

Fly to Europe to watch your favorite football team's games? Or own a private jet and travel around the world?

Most probably those all of those have to come later
  until you really master the ways to invest the 
    dollars in disguise - TIME.

As the old saying goes, time is gold. You harvest what you sow.

In time investment, there is no telling right or 

After all, it is the attitude that matters.

Whatever the outcome is, you grow.
   The upbeat outcomes give you confidence and 

       while the pathetic mistakes make you a wiser

Here comes another irresistible and unmissable investment scheme.

For the coming meeting, 
  do spare 7200 dollars which are equivalent to 2
     hours and 
   see how the successful icons from all walks of 
       life brainstorm and enlighten you with a

Change & AGM

The introduction of austerity measures in European countries triggers the revolutionary political waves, 

   sending many of the previously ruling 
   governments to a crash recently.

Some says changes are like the nuclear chain    
Once it is triggered, a series of self-propagating  
     reactions ensues.

After having had enough of the autocracy, the 
people in African countries stand up straight and 
hold their heads high for democracy,
      leading to the birth of an all - time popular
      term, the Arab Spring.

Some opines that changes are like the
   metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly.
      From downs to ups, you change for the better.

Love it or loathe it, change is an inevitable part of life and making changes is one of the essential life skills.

Like doing experiments,
  after making several changes, 
     failing to get the desired results might be a 
        disappointing and dejected reality to you.

True, result is often an immediate indicator of one's achievement and success.
   Despite the outcome, embracing changes is all
     about the journey and uncertainties you dare 
       to embrace, 
   the fundamentals that make you a more mature 

In Toastmasters, change is a daily business. 
  We realise the problems
    We take criticisms gracefully. 
     And, we change for the better.

Now, here comes the scheduled change for GHTC in which weary faces step down and fresh faces show up - AGM.

No matter who takes the helm,
  initiating and embracing changes positively will
   always be the inherent culture of GHTC,
     and the prominent attitude of the members.

To discover how making changes is an unchangeable affair for GHTC, do make time for the coming event.

Have you ever been shown the red flag in your career?

Not very fancy one. 

Signs like you feel listless and 
   diffident in your work, 
 your boss can't stand with your 
    terrible  presentation that causes
      a plunge in company sales... 

...are the red hue you should take note.

To stay on track
 the better bet would be hoping on any
   Toastmasters Club, the leading
    luminary of the art of speaking.


For first-timers, speaking in front of
  the audience might be daunting,
not to mention the blunders made
  on the stage that will be your 
    constant nightmares.

It's normal your face blushes red and 
 flushing yourself out is never the way.

Sticking yourself resolutely to the speaking regime, you are bound to discover the roses of passion.

Be them the determination to stay 
 competitive or the fervour to
   disconfirm your boss's bad impression
      of you,

the speaking prowess in you will come along too.

Over time, with the oral charisma 
  you garner, you can be as attractive
    as those celebrities.

Embarking on your dreamlike path of 
  success, you can swagger on your own 
    red carpet in style.

While making your childhood dream as a
 Manchester United player come true is
  never Toastmasters'niche

in terms of self-improvement, this is
 the sort of red journey Toastmasters
   can promise, at the very least.

Red.. the allusion to many of those moments..

From the red line you crossed to the red
 scars you got,

From the red roses you proffer to the
   red lips you kiss,

From the teary eyes that turn red to the
   red wine you intoxicate yourself

the colour red permeates so, so much in our life, so does Toastmasters'.

Make the coming meeting your red-letter moment & 
 let the sea of reds in Gurney-Hydro 
   Toastmasters Club brings out the red
     hot form in you.
