VIDEO #1: Nuggets to Lessen the Fear of Public Speaking

This Video is the First of Nineteen about Lessening The Fear of Public Speaking! 

Video Transcript

Fred Miller, NO SWEAT Public Speaking.

Here’s one of my “Nuggets to Lessen the Fear of Public Speaking.”

Never, and I mean Never tell the audience you have a fear of public speaking!

I have seen some of the best presentations almost ruined because the speaker got up and said, “I don’t like this. My heart is pounding! I really hate speaking in public.”

Never do that!

Three reasons:

  1. It could become a self-fulfilling prophecy. No negative talk!

  2. The audience will start looking for it.

  3. “Well, I thought he looked pretty good, but he said he was nervous. Let me see. . .maybe his knees are shaking! I think I see some sweat on his brow!”

  4. Don’t say that!

  5. It makes the audience feel uneasy.

  6. They’re going to get away from listening to your message.

  7. They feel uneasy because you said you feel uneasy.

  8. Don’t do that!

Never tell the audience you have a fear of public speaking!

Trust me! They are very happy sitting in the audience rather than being in the position you’re in speaking to them.

This stuff works!
