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 continue to learn about how to confidently speak in public. Musicians and other performers rehearse their performance over and over in order to perfect it. If you want to lift your game as a public speaker, make sure that you rehearse your speech many times. Here are the phases of rehearsal:

  • Phase 1: rehearse your speech with a simulated audience. Set out a row of chairs in front of you and borrow teddy bears and dolls, if you can. Otherwise you can also put cushions on the chairs in order to simulate the audience.  Practice walking on to the ‘stage’ and face your ‘audience’.  (Remember to use the NLP anchoring technique!)
  • Phase 2: rehearse your speech in front of just one friend or family member. Ask you friend to smile at you while they listen to you, and also time the presentation for you. Again, include walking onto the ‘stage’ and stepping off as part of your presentation. Before you start, take a deep breath and smile at your audience. During your presentation, speak a little more slowly than usual.
  • Phase 3: invite a small group of staunch friends to listen to your presentation. Follow the guidelines above. Make sure you treat the presentation like a dress rehearsal. Wear the clothes you have chosen for the presentation, and simulate stepping onto the stage.

Hope this helped. Come back tomorrow for more learnings on public speaking.

      Stage fright and performance anxiety are perfectly normal phenomenons that occur in most people (to some varying degree). It can manifest as anxious jitters before a big performance, or, for some people, it can be so debilitating that it actually prevents you from public speaking, performing, presenting, and so on.
