    Become a Better Public Speaker with Brenden Kumarasamy [VIDEO]

    I'm talking with ⁠Brenden Kumarasamy⁠ about how to become a better speaker. 

    Brendan Kumarasamy is a master of improvisation and public speaking. 

    Through his unique approach of creating presentations on random topics like tomatoes, potatoes, and trophies, he helps people deal with uncertainty and make sense out of nonsense.

    Brenden's ability to turn the mundane into captivating presentations has inspired many to conquer their fear of public speaking and become confident communicators.

    Brenden Kumarasamy, creator of the ⁠Master Talk YouTube channel⁠, talks with me on this episode of Desitny Architecture¼ about public speaking, stage fright, Toastmasters, fear of judgment—and so much more! 

    From Brenden's "random word exercise" to sending video messages of gratitude, we're driving into simple yet effective ways to enhance communication skills. Join us as we uncover the transformative potential of becoming a better public speaker and living a more fulfilling life through improved communication.

    Hey Everyone! I just wanted to give you a quick update on what's been happening with Destiny Architecture. It's been a whirlwind of change, growth, and new opportunities, and I'm thrilled to share some amazing updates with you.


    Meditation Course: You can now access a comprehensive meditation course through Destiny Architecture. This includes audio and video instruction, along with a 30-day meditation journal to help you on your journey to inner peace and mindfulness.

    2. Community: I've launched a community on our website where we can connect and discuss meditation, Reiki, yoga, and personal development. It's a space for sharing ideas, getting inspired, and building a supportive network of like-minded individuals.

    3. Exclusive Wellness Program: Introducing a 12-week mind-body wellness program that blends yoga, Reiki, meditation, and personalized coaching. This program is designed for deep transformation and includes private coaching sessions, meditation courses, self-care planners, and access to guided meditations.

    I'm truly excited about the opportunity to continue supporting you on your journey towards becoming the architect of your own destiny. If any of these updates resonate with you, feel free to reach out or visit destinyarchitecture.com for more details. ✹

    Oh! One more thing, which I mentioned during the podcast and it's worth saying again here. The Destiny ArchitectureÂź online school is through Teachable. So if you're already in that ecosystem, and have the app on your phone or tablet, great! You can sign up there. Or you can sign up with your browser on my site. (If you do that, you'll also be able to sign on through the Teachable app).

    This will make learning really portable. You can take the meditation course on your lunch break, while traveling, while waiting for the kids to get done at practice... All you need is your phone.

    I recommend some great headphones, earbuds, or any other way you prefer of really getting into the sound of the guided meditations. Try to immerse yourself in them! Make your meditation practice your own. 🧘

    Master Mindset with Author Terry Tucker on The Destiny ArchitectureÂź Podcast

    Master Mindset with Author Terry Tucker on The Destiny ArchitectureÂź Podcast

    The Destiny ArchitectureÂź Podcast is Back with a New Episode to Kick Off 2024: Master Mindset with Author Terry Tucker!



    Host: Heather Larson 





    I'll preface this by saying I recorded it in March of 2023...then sat it on for a good 9 months as I focused on the weekly guided meditation podcast. 



    I'm happy to bring back the Destiny Architecture¼ Podcast after a long hiatus since June 2022—and since renaming it. (It was formerly the Fearless 5). New episodes will drop on Wednesdays wherever you get your podcasts! 



    Terry Tucker is a former Division One college basketball player who overcame three knee surgeries in high school to achieve his dream of playing at the highest level. Despite the challenges, Tucker had the opportunity to play against legendary players such as Michael Jordan and teams like North Carolina State. His journey is a testament to perseverance and determination in the face of adversity. 



    Welcome to Destiny ArchitectureŸ, where we explore stories and insights that inspire personal growth and resilience. 



    In this episode, I share my journey of healing a ligament injury and defying medical prognoses, while also delving into the power of mindset in the face of physical and emotional challenges. 



    Joined by guest Terry Tucker, a former hostage negotiator and athlete, we unpack the importance of mindset, self-awareness, and embracing discomfort in healing and personal growth. From defying medical odds to finding inner strength during health crises, we explore the transformative impact of controlling the mind and facing pain with resilience. 



    Join us for a powerful conversation that will shift your perspective on overcoming challenges and creating an extraordinary life.



    Timestamped overview



    00:00 Initial NCAA basketball experience shapes mindset and foundation.

    05:56 Mindset is 4 times more important than physical.

    08:36 Overcame injury with determination and willpower.

    12:20 Balancing family needs and self-care through yoga.

    13:36 Maintaining a positive and productive mindset is crucial.

    20:15 Avoiding discomfort leads to indulgence and distraction.

    23:26 Afraid of needles since childhood

    27:57 Neighbors and friends provided essential support.

    32:48 Friend with severe long COVID shows resilience.

    "Embrace the pain and the difficulty that we all experience in life, and use that pain and difficulty to make you a stronger and more resilient individual." — Terry Tucker



    "Winners think about what they want to happen. Losers think about what they don't want to happen." — Terry Tucker



    "You need to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional."— Terry Tucker
