The most important lesson for Presentation Success

April 3, 2024

Recently, I was looking at some conference footage. I am on enormous screens at the conference, leading some Bollywood dancing. The entire audience is up and dancing. There I am dancing the whole time with my mouth wide open! My partner asks helpfully, ‘Why do you always dance with your mouth open?’ So embarrassing.

I wanted to curl up and die… then as a professional speaker and presenter, I embraced Vairagya.  

A Sanskrit word, Vairagya (be careful how you say it!) means non-attachment to the outcomes. It frees you from the possible disappointment of your expectations. Do your best and leave the rest.

Without Vairagya, you might be too embarrassed or scared to take a risk or try once, fall flat and never try again. Vairagya allows you to overcome the fear of failure and take risks boldly.

Embracing Vairagya I saw that the audience loved the Bollywood dancing. They were all up and dancing, and the formal feedback was terrific. I have, though, now learned to dance with my mouth shut!

Vairagya frees you to act, no matter the context. It is an important mindset for presentation success.
