Justthe thought of our deepest fear is enough, it seems, to mean that we will do almost anything toavoid facing our public speaking fear!But why is this, exactly?What is there to fear about talking in front of people?Its not as if public speaking puts your life in danger or anything, after all!Well, this is another of those learned fears, believe it or not. (Only fear of abandonment, fear offalling and fear of loud noises are innate fears, by the way). So, yes, fear of public speaking is alearned fear. We have learned to place a value on what others think of us, so much so that toappear nervous, unsure or even inept in front of others is our ultimate fear.Thats the bad news. The good news is that this fear of public speaking can be overcome. And allit takes is a little bit of know-how and a lot of practice, practice, practice. Then giving a 5-minutespeech or a 30-minute presentation can actually feel exhilarating and very satisfying, rather thanterrifying.This transformation from terrified to exhilarated is possible, but it has to begin with you taking thefirst step. You have to admit to yourself that you have this fear and then you have to take action.And the kind of action you have to take is as follows:a) Learn how to improve your presentation skills by going on a public speaking course. And youwill find these courses at a local school or college, or even via a search on Googleb) Practice your public speaking skills over and over and over. Talk in front of your friends, yourfamily or even your work colleagues. Take yourself seriously, and be as professional as possible.And put into practice what you learnt on your public speaking course.c) And, finally, make that public speech! (Go to your local toastmasters if you dont have a realreason to speak in public.) And part of speaking in public is being prepared, so make sure youhave water nearby, in case you get a dry throat, and also make sure that youve rehearsed theopening few minutes of your speech REALLY well, so you dont need any notes. (You shouldrehearse the whole speech several times also.)
