One of my favorite things about The Avengers is Iron Man’s suit.
Not because it’s red and shiny and allows him to fly up to the stratosphere and shoot laser beams, but because it comes when Iron Man calls it.
In one of the movie’s most satisfying scenes, Iron Man a/k/a Tony Stark (played by the inimitable Robert Downey, Jr.) is running down the odds to bad guy Loki. And while he’s doing that, Tony surreptitiously slips on an iron bracelet that he’s conveniently stashed behind the bar in his ultra-fabulous penthouse.
Why does Tony do this? Not from a sudden fashion attack, but because he suspects that Loki is going to throw him out of the wrap-around, 80th story windows.
When Loki does just that, the bracelet summons Tony’s Iron Man suit and saves his life.
Now what, you may wonder, does this have to do with having your very own Public Speaking Avatar?
Your Public Speaking Avatar Comes When You Call It
Even if you’re not a fan of Iron Man (or Robert Downey, Jr.), you might enjoy having a suit of iron that comes when you need it, snaps into place around you, and shields you from the slings and arrows of outrageous (or alien) fortune.
That’s inspiration that all of us can use. But if you want to take this further—if you also want your Public Speaking Avatar to be a “genius billionaire playboy philanthropist”—by all means, go for it!
