How to Overcome Fear of Public Speaking: Be a Confident Speaker
“”There are many speaker myths out there that need to be dispelled in order to overcome the fear of public speaking,” says Larina Kase and Harrison Monarth, authors of “The Confident Speaker.”
One is, if you’re anxious you will not perform well. In reality we actually need anxiety to perform well; we just need the right level of anxiety. People start getting a little nervous, they feel their heart beating quickly and they think oh no, I’m anxious, I’m not going to do a good job when we found in research that in fact when people are a bit anxious they do a fine job.
You can be proactive and learn supportive, empowering strategies that will help you to go from scared speechless to confident speaker…”
Good points here. But here’s another to consider: some people should be nervous about their speech becasue they are about to bore their audience to death. One of the best ways to get over nerves when speaking is to actually have something interesting to say. TJ Walker http://www.tjwalker.com http://www.speakingchannel.tv
