    • Trying to impart too much information or cover too many points in a short presentation.
    • Having the wrong purpose in mind (to get rather than to give/contribute)
    • Trying to please everyone (this is unrealistic)
    • Trying to emulate other speakers (very difficult) rather than simply being yourself (very easy).
  • 7.
    • Trying to emulate other speakers (very difficult) rather than simply being yourself (very easy).
    • Being fearful of potential negative outcomes (they almost never occur and even when they do, you can use them to your advantage).
    • Trying to control the wrong things (e.g. the behavior of your audience)
    • Spending too much time overpreparing (instead of developing confidence and trust in your natural ability to succeed).
    • Thinking your audience will be as critical of your performance as you might be.
    Conquering Public Speaking Fear (by Dr. Morton C. Orman)

    • I love you (sad)
    • I hate you (seductive)
    • Get lost (situation: dog is running after you)
