Those following my Instagram will have noticed that recently I have been using it as a platform to verbally present my self-motivation quotes.
Yes, I face either my smartphone or camera, often sprouting a mashup of these inspirational quotes.
Mostly I do this to improve my face mannerisms, vocal confidence and sentence structure. I know I talk fast, I know I slur, and I know I often push words together. Yet I want to improve my visual appearance for both my YouTube videos and Radio work.
So take a look at these, let me know what you think. I fully welcome any suggestions or support.
This one was where I decided to start recording 3 to 8 second clips because then I could put the emphasis on the correct word.
2016 was shite for most of us. 2017 is here now. Make the most of the little time you have. And it's already March!! This is aimed at myself as much as anyone else. . . #newpursuits #newgoals #freshstart #studydifferent #becomesomebody #upgradebodyandmind #upskill #updateskills #followyourdreams #follownewpaths
It all actually began with this one where I say “Change the World“. One of my brothers gave it for my 40th Birthday with the matching book (buried here somewhere!), and that day I figured it was time to start doing it. Let’s all change the world.
Then I started recording daily
Woke up early on #Easter morning thinking it's time to "give a damm". The #Casablanca line doesn't work anymore. Nobody should say "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." It's time to give a damn. Care for others. #Watch each others back. Do onto others as you would like done for you. And, quite frankly, #care. Yes, I look a little tired in the video. Late night editing videos for family. . . #giveadamn #careaboutothers #changetheworld #worldchange #ourworld #firststep #babysteps #helpeachother #givingback #goodtoallmen And I say all this as an #agnostic. Go figure
"Life is like photography – We all develop from negatives." Someone said I looked angry and depressed on my last video. So I found and gave a negative quote a positive spin. Kinda works. What do you think? #perseverance #positivevibes #positivity #positivequotes #photography #photographer #spokenword #quotetomyself #stayingpositive #stayingpumped
Why am I producing mini vlogs like this? To improve both my radio and YouTube facial mannerisms, sentence structure and stength, plus my vocal confidence. I listen to my listeners, and I try to improve wherever I failing or weaker. "If we don't have the chance to fail, we don't have a chance to move forward. Always take the chance to have a good go at something before you succeed … or fail."
There’s many more to come!
