Daily Dose of Living

Get ready to maximise your potential, maximise your living with empress2inspire’s new posts series “Daily Dose of Living”. These series will bring you the best in personal development and productivity every day of the week. Your best life awaits.

In today’s post we will talk about how to confidently speak in public. Before we look at the psychological strategies you can employ in order to feel confident and in charge during a public presentation, let’s take a look at what fears you may need to be overcome:

Fear #1: My mind will go blank
Fear #2:
 People will think I’m stupid
Fear #3:
 I’ll be so nervous; I’ll start to shake, stutter, stammer, or otherwise be unintelligible.
Fear #4:
 I’ll make mistakes
Fear #5: 
Instead of applauding, the audience will respond with anger or ridicule.

As you can see in the list of fears, there are two main categories of fears. One is ‘presentation failure’ – which includes physical or mental problems that mar the presentation. And the other is ‘response failure’ – which is getting the wrong kind of response from your audience. ‘Response failure’ comes down to mistakes in the preparation of the actual content of a presentation. Hope this helped. Come back tomorrow for more learnings on public speaking.
