Love’s Hidden Treasure


For Elaine Love, it was a huge surprise. She had no idea that deep inside her was an inspiring speaker, able to deliver a speech that would not only win top honors, but, change people’s lives, as well as her own, in very positive and gratifying ways.

“You could say that I experienced a hidden treasure lying dormant, deep inside of me.” says Love. “I was attending a seminar, and found myself becoming very distracted and annoyed by the “umms” and “uh’s” that seemed to perforate nearly every sentence. I decided that I had value to share, public speaking was the medium, and I would settle for nothing less than being highly successful at it”.

Little did she know that public speaking would come very natural for her. When, at 64 years old, she decided to master public speaking, she had no idea she would unearth a talent that would take her on national speaking tours.

Elaine says “I joined Toastmasters International in November 2008 and by Dec. 11, I delivered my “ice breaker speech”. I mastered a one-year Toastmasters manual in four months, and began delivering speech after speech. I decided to enter the international speech contest. The competition pitted me against speakers who have been on the circuit for as long as a decade. I won at the club level, the area level, the metro division and took 2nd place at the district level, behind the speaker who is now competing Internationally.”

She whispered “I was told that “taking 2nd place to that particular 1st place speaker, is like saying I took second place in a golf tournament where the first place was Tiger Woods”.

Love is determined to compete and win International, next year. Her reputation rests on being the best. She says, “My business is based upon helping others succeed. I owe it to them to excel at what I do, and pass that knowledge and ability on to them.”

Love’s latest speech, entitled “My Attitude Counts” won numerous accolades from her Toast Master Colleagues.

“The bottom line is it’s not what happens to us in our life, it’s how we choose to deal with it,” Love said. “Life is an attitude, choose to have a good one.”
