Money Matters Episode 68- Emote: Using Emotions to Make Your Message Memorable W/ Vikas Jhingran

Many people fear public speaking more than death. Most wish they could do it bettter, or at least avoid the sweating, stuttering jitters that plague them before any presentation or speech.

Vikas Jhingran has been there. He was so poor at speaking in public that his supervisor wouldnt let him make presentations to clients-even though he had done all the work

Surprisingly, few professional speakers and presenters understand speeches or presentations at a fundamental level. Their overly prescriptive approach actually ends up confusing the speech and the tools that are used to deliver it, instead of connecting with the essential part of speaking- that which engages listeners with the message and the emotions that go with it.

On todays show we were joined by Author, Vikas Gopal Jhingran. We discussed his new book Emote: Using Emotion to Make Your Message Memorable.  

Vikas Gopal Jhingran is an MIT-trained engineer and researcher who used to suffer from poor speaking skills, due in part to being both an introvert and an immigrant. He studied public speaking to impove in this area and eventually won the Toastmasters 2007 World Championship of Public Speaking, the first East Indian and only the 2nd Asian to do so in the 80-year history of the competition. He lives with his wife and two sons in Houston, Texas.

We are in the midst of a momentous event in the evolution of human consciousness, but they won't be talking about it in the news tonight. - Eckhart Tolle, self-help guru

Open up your mind, in pours the trash. - Meat Puppets, "desert punk" band

On todays show we were joined by Emmy award winning correspondent for ABC News and co-anchor for Nightline and the weekend edition of Good Morning America, Dan Harris. We discussed his new book 10% Happier.  

After having a nationally televised panic attack on Good Morning America, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure, involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had both propelled him through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business and also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.

We all have a voice in our head. It’s what has us losing our temper unnecessarily, checking our email compulsively, eating when we’re not hungry, and fixating on the past and the future at the expense of the present. Most of us would assume we’re stuck with this voice – that there’s nothing we can do to rein it in – but Harris stumbled upon an effective way to do just that. It’s a far cry from the miracle cures peddled by the self-help swamis he met; instead, it’s something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation. After learning about research that suggests meditation can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, Harris took a deep dive into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines who are now using it for increased calm, focus, and happiness.
