Public speaking is something many people dread and we were no exception. Whereas some people thrive when they’re on a stage delivering a speech or when they have to stand out and give a presentation at work, others find it to be a stressful ordeal. However, there are ways to overcome the fear of public speaking and a few small changes can make a big difference.
How To Get Over a Fear of Public Speaking
The fear of public speaking can arise for a number of different reasons, all of which seem to be centred around the worry and stress of messing up or getting things wrong. After all, when you’re speaking in public – whether that be as part of a speech, drama performance or presentation – everyone’s eyes are on you and when something goes wrong it becomes very obvious. So, it’s all about getting rid of the worry of things going wrong and learning to enjoy the experience in a calm way.
