Public Speaking Fear: Banish Your Nerves
Public speaking fear got you paralyzed? You CAN banish your nerves and actually enjoy your next presentation.
Public Speaking Fear:
1) Watch How Great People Do It
If you have a presentation coming up, start observing the
traits and habits of successful public speakers. Take note of their styles and
timing. How do they break the ice? What techniques do they use to engage the
2) Dress for the Occasion
Looking your best will boost your confidence. Personal
grooming is very important. How can people pay attention to your speech if all
they can see is your messy hair or wrinkled shirt? When public speaking is
required, make sure you look good, ready and professional.
3) Never Resort to Alcohol to Calm Your Nerves
Sure you don’t mean any harm when you down a small bottle of
whiskey to let go of all your inhibitions. But if you overdo it and you start
rambling in front of the audience, that will be the end of it! Remember Mariah
Carey when she delivered her acceptance speech at Palm Springs Film Festival?
You don’t want to pull off anything like that!
4) Start Believing You are Fabulous
Negative thinking will not help you deliver your best
speech. You need to start believing in yourself more. When you are confident
about yourself, it will radiate in your speech. Confidence will make you appear
5) Don't Be Too Hard On Yourself
We all make mistakes, but this does not mean you have to make it
so obvious when you forget to read something off your notes. Nobody will ever
know. It’s alright if you accidentally skip forward to the next image on the
projector. Relax and carry on.
6) Slow Down
with their speech as quickly as possible. If you are a fast
talker, try to slow down and just enjoy every minute of your speech. No matter
how good your material is, if the audience can hardly catch up, they would go
home learning NOTHING.
7) Establish Eye Contact
look at your audience when you’re speaking to them. And by audience it means
people and not ceiling or floor. You will appear more confident when your head
is up instead of having your face glued to your notes. Looking at your audience
in the eye will also put them at ease.
8) Take Advantage of Graphics and Props
To prevent the audience from having a snooze fest, use
graphics and different props. Keeping your audience entertained will keep the
flow going. Use visuals if they can help you convey your message more
9) Crack Some Jokes
Using humor will not only keep the audience interested but
you are going to make a memorable speech. You don’t need to be a comedic genius
like Ellen DeGeneres; just a few lighthearted comments will liven up the mood
in the room. You can surely win your audience with well-timed clever remarks.
10) Keep It Short and Sweet
If the president can do his State of the Union Address in
one hour, why can’t you do the same? You can’t go on for hours talking about
the same thing. Organize all your points and deliver them accordingly. Don’t
torture your audience by having them listen to your ramblings all day.
Public Speaking Fear:
TIME TO BANISH YOUR FEAR
If you have a profound fear of public speaking, an upcoming
presentation can ruin your life for weeks. You can be happily going
about your day when suddenly it pops into your mind and bam, the
clenching in the stomach, the sweaty hands, the fast heart rate.
Every time this happens, your mind and body are preparing to
produce an extreme anxiety reaction in the presentation itself. To your
unconscious, what you are thinking about it something that is going to
threaten your very survival. And so of course it's going to prepare you
What your unconscious mind needs is a clear signal that everything is going to be OK.
It needs a strong message that public speaking, although a
performance environment, is not actually a threatening one. When it
understands that, it can produce just the right level of heightened
performance for you, without going off the scale.
Being a great public speaker is perhaps the best advantage you can
have. A confident speaker is irresistible - and something people
remember forever. Good public speaking tells others you are confident,
capable and intelligent. And when it comes to the next round of
promotions, that is going to count for a lot.
