The three things I used to tell myself before a speaking gig:  

1. Be smart. 
2. Be entertaining. 
3. Be careful (not to offend). 

The three things I now tell myself before a speaking gig: 

1. Be yourself. 
2. Be honest. 
3. Be kind. 

Let me tell you, the last three work much better—both in life and behind the podium.
