Most people report that giving a speech is their greatest fear. And yet the ability to give a speech is one of the most valued business skills today. I give these 10 important tips that how I get over my nervousness and develop confidence while speaking others. 1. I expect to be nervous; Even experienced speakers get nervous. To escape from this nervousness I don’t eliminate my jitters. I turn them into energy what I can use to boost my delivery. 2. I prepare myself before speaking; Before speaking I know what I am going to say – and why I want to say it. 3. I do practice joining some course; I often practice to speak to supportive audiences in small forums where less is at stake – at a staff meeting or a PTA meeting. For more practice I joined Toastmasters or took a Dale Carnegie course. I work with a coach to overcome my deficiencies in conversation. 4. I take breathe before starting conversation; In the thirty seconds before I begin speaking, I take three slow, deep breaths through my nose, filling my belly. As I breathe out, I use to say silently to myself, “Relax.” 5. I rehearse point to point while speaking; I stand up and walk around as I practice out loud. I don't memorize my speech or practice it word for word. I talk it through, point by point. I Imagine that I am explaining my main ideas to a friend. 6. Focus on your audience. Stage fright is rooted in self-preoccupation. (“How am I doing?” “Am I making any sense?”). So I stop focusing on myself. I Focus, instead, on my audience. (“How are you?” “Are you getting this?” “Can you hear me?”) 7. I rather simplify the conversation; Most speakers try to do too much in a speech. Then they worry about leaving something out or losing their train of thought. For me, I aim, instead, to communicate one basic idea. I try to keep conversations short and simple. 8. I Visualize success in speaking; I do practice relaxation techniques in the days before my presentation. I lie down or sit comfortably in a quiet place. I breathe slowly. I close my eyes. I imagine my upcoming speaking engagement. I depict myself speaking with confidence. 9. I make connections with my audience; I make the audience my allies. I talk to individuals before my presentation to get to know them. I look them in the eye as I speak to them, one person at a time. When my audience sides with me, my job as a speaker becomes easier. 10. I do act confidently; People won’t see how nervous you are. (They can’t tell if your palms are sweating or your knees are knocking or your heart is pounding.) So I never tell them my nervousness. I smile. I stick my chest out. I behave confidently, even if I don’t feel it.
