Lesson 2: How Not to Always Speak in Public
Most people who are new to public speaking have issues with the fact that they always feel they have to speak in public. This is especially true for those who are introverts, but also true for extroverts. The problem doesn’t lie within the expectation of being able to speak publically, but in how you prepare for it. Here’s how you can overcome this problem: 1. Create a plan on what you need to say, not just share ideas. If you have no plan to speak publicly, speak like a robot, which will make you seem fake and uninteresting. In other words, don’t be afraid to create a plan by which you can prepare your speech step by step. Also, concentrate on sharing the most important points from your speech at the start of it.
2. Don’t procrastinate! You’ll be surprised how many hours, days, and weeks go by after you’ve been assigned to give a speech to your friends and family. Procrastination will make you feel nervous about giving the speech, because thinking that ‘the time is getting closer’ will create pressure and tension inside of you. This type of pressure will build up until the end of the speech, which is why it’s best to start preparing for it as soon as possible.
