More than a few people have tried to avoid public speaking because they don’t want to embarrass themselves and they are afraid of making mistakes. This is a skill that you would have to learn at some point because it is important in your career growth. You have to learn the dos and don’ts of making presentations so that you would get your point across easily and you will not bore your audience to death. By learning effective presentation skills, a lot of people would be looking forward to hearing your ideas.
No one is born with a talent for presentation skill classes. Every successful speaker had to overcome their anxieties and deal with the stress of the situation in order to develop their knowledge and skills. You can to!
Try replacing your fear with a heightened sense of awareness. Look through eyes which are not placing judgments on situations or people, and simply observe. Practice this relaxed state of mind, and notice how your environment (and the people within it) becomes more supportive.
It is also important to know what type of person you want in your business. Would you sponsor you? Would you want more people like you in your business? Hopefully the answer is yes and if not what qualities do you need to improve on? What qualities does your prospect possess that will equip them for success in a home business?
Bring along a video camera if you are attending any public events like trade shows and conventions. You’ll probably end up meeting people that are experts in your field that you can get interviews from. If you’re doing public speakings, have it recorded.
Nothing is worse than trying to give a presentation on a topic you don’t own. This doesn’t mean you have to be an expert, but you had better know your topic when it’s stage time. If you understand your audience and their needs your material will satisfy their needs and your presentation will be a hit.
Stop wasting your energy by simply talking about your dreams. Instead, go ahead and chase your vision by living your dreams. You have already spent enough time talking about your dreams and how to overcome your fears. Now is the right time to put these words into action. Go ahead and break those shackles of fears holding you back and live the life of your dreams.
