How I Overcame My Fear of Public Speaking?

How To Overcame Your Fear of Public Speaking?

Fear
Communication is the most important skill for personal and professional success. In this talk, Danish Dhamani discusses how overcoming your fear of public speaking is key to leading a fulfilling life and unlocking your true potential. Danish’s vision is to empower everyone around the world to overcome their fear of public speaking and to become a better communicator. As a first-generation immigrant, for whom English is a second language, the fear of public speaking haunted Danish throughout his early life. By constant practising and coaching, he soon realized that people are not born public speakers; instead public speaking is a learnable skill. This is what inspired Danish to create Orai, a mobile app that uses artificial intelligence to improve your speaking ability. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.”

Public Speaking Fear

Public Speaking Fear

There is a post in Terry Dean’s blog on “Overcome Fear“.

“The greatest obstacle to creating the life you want is fear.

Fear

It affects every single area of our lives. You’re afraid of what happens if you take that next step. People spend their whole lives in their “comfort zone” because they’re afraid to step out and do something different…”

“How many years have you allowed fear to hold you back from your dreams?”

“For example, public speaking is one of the greatest fears. What if you freeze when you get up to speak? What if you say something stupid? What if you look like an idiot?

My answer is “So what?” So what if you say something stupid. You’ve probably done it before, and you’ll do it again. And I’m thoroughly convinced someone will think you look like an idiot. The majority won’t. They respect you for even getting up there, but someone will think you look like an idiot. So what? That same person who thinks you look like an idiot really is an idiot. So why would you care what they think?”

“Don’t allow FEAR to control your life and hold you back. Every breakthrough you’ll ever have in your life and business will require you to overcome FEAR. It’s the enemy. It’s hiding in your mind right now making up excuses for why you can’t go forward. It’s telling you why it won’t work for you. It’s creating excuse after excuse of why you have to stay where you’re at instead of stepping out toward your dreams…”

Are you afraid to stand and speak your mind?
You are not alone! Public speaking is the greatest fear a person may have.
On the other hand, to speak well in public is an asset.
Speaking with confidence is really useful. However, not everyone can do it.
