For anyone afraid of talking in front of an audience, as much as public speaking may challenge you, you likely don’t have much of a problem with normal speaking in interactions at work, school, and in your social life.
Public speaking is different from a typical conversation. Our speaking skills, which are reasonably present in everyday life, deteriorate when faced with a microphone and a crowd. And our hard-won ability to deal with fear-inducing situations evaporates in front of an audience. Our speaking abilities shrink, and fear grows from manageable to overwhelming.
Fear becomes panic. Panic overtakes us to a point where we can’t think clearly, and our bodies revolt against us by shaking, sweating, and stammering. In this state, relaxed, simple, and effective public speaking is impossible.
To become a better speaker you will need more than just focusing on overcoming your fears. You will need to write your speech, prepare yourself, and work on your stage presence and the delivery of your talk.
Organize Everything in Advance
I suggest that you work on creating great content and organizing it so that it flows well. There are different books and different theories on how to write your speech.
Prepare your speech. Practice the answers to any possible questions that you might get asked at the event. Preparation is the key to successful and smooth communication.
Likewise, the more you know the content, and the more you hold it close to you, the less of a burden it becomes. This is not about memorizing your speech. Know your content and the weight of your words, and your nervousness will subside.
Consider the essential ingredients for public speaking: You, your message, and the audience.
Going on stage and speaking in front of a crowd is like a bell that cannot be un-rung. You have to ensure that every word that you put out there is supported by facts.
Always tell the truth. It is important that when you get on stage share that truth for what it is. Do this for the sake of your integrity.
If you are working on finding the courage to speak the truth, you must first start with the assumption that the people you are talking to are going to be intelligent.
Set up a video camera and record yourself giving a speech. Then watch yourself.
When you watch yourself, you can see shifts in your speaking pattern. Watching yourself speak may be an awful experience at first! However, it is extremely useful. By watching a playback of your speech, you will be able to coach yourself!
Sharing your life experiences and what you discovered along the way may be valuable to your audience. This gives you authenticity and helps you in connecting with the crowd on a personal level.
Some may think that having a large group is a testament to your success as a public speaker. In reality, your true achievement is the number of people who you can impact successfully. These are the ones that connect with you. They are the ones who would be keen on implementing the ideas that you have shared with them.

BECOME A BETTER SPEAKER A& OVERCOME YOUR FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING!
Have You experienced Stage Fright?
Do you want to become a better speaker?
For anyone reading this book, as much as public speaking may challenge you, you likely don’t have much of a problem with normal speaking in interactions at work, school, and in your social life. You may not be a perfect conversationalist, but you don’t break into a cold sweat just thinking about talking with coworkers, other students, or friends at a café.
Furthermore, you have probably encountered fear and dealt with it successfully many times. You are likely to have had a lot of practice conquering fear. Fear, in the guise of worry and concern, happens frequently as we go through life. We encounter new people in new situations that challenge us regularly. But when fear, concern, or worry confront us, we handle it. It may not always be easy, but we get past the fear because we need to do what we need to do to provide for our families, reach our educational goals, and make an impact on our communities. The fear may be strong at first, but it does not hold us back. We can see through the fear to what is important to us.
But, for many, public speaking is different. Our speaking skills, which are reasonably present in everyday life, deteriorate when faced with a microphone and a crowd, and our hard-won ability to deal with fear-inducing situations evaporates in front of an audience. Our speaking abilities shrink, and fear grows from manageable to overwhelming.
This painful combination of events makes us either avoid public speaking completely or creates a miserable experience when we do speak.
