SAMPLE SPEAKING

Of all the contemporary businessmen I'm aware of, Justin Brown is the name I'm really interested in. 
I have great admiration for Justin Brown not because he's famous for being rich or anything. He's an Australian businessman, the CEO of Ideapod, a digital media platform that provides articles on a great number of ideas shaping our lives. I've known him for a while now... less than a year, I guess... You know, one day I was using Facebook when I came across a post shared by a friend of mine, which was about the rejection of positive thinking. This was an article about the philosophy against positive thinking. Simply put, we are normally advised to think positively because, you know, it helps us feel optimistic and always be in a good mood. However, according to that article posted by Justin Brown, positive thinking actually does us more harm than good. It is harmful because it makes us deny reality and become dishonest to ourselves. It is dangerous because our negative emotions should be released rather than repressed. We're human beings, and releasing our negative feelings is part of a healthy lifestyle.

So I must say that I enjoy reading many articles posted by Justin Brown on Facebook, and he's actually one of the businessmen I know and admire a lot mainly because of what he's contributing to the global community from the point of view of selecting and sharing life-changing ideas.
