A survey of America revealed that people are more frightened of speaking in public than of dying!
How incredible is that? To be more frightened of talking to a few people than of having your life ended.
It’s particularly surprising when you realise just how easily you can overcome your fear of public speaking. Using a program such as Unlimited Confidence can teach you tools to overcome this fear and be able to speak out when you need to.
When you talk about public speaking, people instantly think of standing on a stage in front of a huge audience presenting a lecture. However, public speaking is much more than just that. It could giving a speech at a wedding, doing a presentation at work, speaking out in a meeting, or for a club or society you belong to.
Being able to speak in public will help you to feel better about yourself and can help you get ahead in your career too. If you think about it, as you get higher up the ladder in your career, so you find you have to talk to more people and present; so this level of confidence becomes even more important.
This fear manifests physically before having to speak. It starts off as an anxiety, and then becomes a dry mouth, trembling muscles, rapid breathing, and a need to run to the bathroom. In worst cases it can involve sheer panic and the desire to run away.
So how can you get rid of this fear and feel more comfortable with speaking in front of people?
Firstly, you can practise. The more you do something the more confidence and comfortable you become doing it. You can join a group such as Toastmasters International which allows you to develop your communication and leadership skills. You can also volunteer to speak in front of any group of people too.
The Unlimited Confidence course teaches you some valuable tools to help you become more confident not only speaking in public, but in any situation. You will learn how to
* Instantly boost your confidence in seconds without anyone knowing what you are doing
* Learn how to use body language to convey confidence
* Discover how you can attach confidence to absolutely anything
* And many more practical and effective techniques
You will also learn in this course how to use mental rehearsal to program yourself for more confidence, and this can be applied very easily to public speaking. You probably currently run a mental movie of you falling on your face and embarrassing yourself when you speak in front of a group. If instead of running that movie you saw yourself speaking really well, the audience enjoying it and you get applauded at the end, what do you think would happen?
Of course, I am sure you could think of a number of different areas of your life you could apply this technique to, couldn’t you?
Speaking in front of people is actually extremely easy with just a few small changes to the way you think – and you never know, you might even enjoy it!
