public speaking. Now you may want to wave this off
and be like,”oh, I don’t need this stuff. This is for the
CEOs, and MDs and top businessmen….I don’t even
have an audience to address.” But I’d like to let you
know that sooner or later, everyone will have to
address an audience, whether large or small and the
earlier you start learning how to do this, the better it
will be for you and your to be audience.
Now the first thing you should do is to make a
decision to not be overcome by fear. A lot of people
don’t know this that feeling fear is hugely different
from being afraid. It is within the power of your choice
to choose whether to be overcome by fear or not.
Making this decision helps you to build more
confidence in yourself, and helps you to be more
composed. Start by saying to yourself continuously
that, ‘I will not live in fear’. As you say this over and
over again, you become more in control of yourself
and are more able to decide whether to be overcome
by fear or not.
The next and most vital thing to do is to know your
stuff. When you come out to speak in public, people
assume already that you are a pro and so it is up to
you, whether to convince them or disappoint them.
You should know the subject topic in and out so you
don’t fumble. What lecturer is it that goes to lecture a
class without conducting a proper study of the subject
he is to lecture.
Another point of note is, YOU MUST BE COMPOSED.
Everything you have to say must be composed and
arranged in a very clear order. All discussions under
the topic should follow sequentially and must be
related. The best form of speaking is stringed
speaking in which everything you say is tied to one
string and follows a clear order, that’s how you know
a good speaker.
