The Naysayer: Toastmasters Project 3 by TM Saheel Baral

Let me ask you – how many of us know who what the term NAYSAYER means? A NAYSAYER is a person who is pessimist and sees the dark side of every action.

Everyone in this hall have at least once been broken, demotivated, distraught, torn, teased, and tossed. We at least once questioned our life and existence to the higher force. You would be lying if you say no.
