Are you a professional who needs to be able to articulate your thoughts and ideas smoothly, clearly, calmly and confidently?
Are you tired of not being able to say what you want, when you want, the way you want?
If you’ve been searching the web for how to stop stuttering solutions or speech therapy for adults then you’ve probably come across a lot of resources. Where do you start? Who can you trust? Do they actually work?
While doing a recent search I found quite a few articles with great tips and tricks as well as 3-day program, 12-day programs, traditional speech therapy, and a delayed auditory feedback device.
Have you tried any of those?
Well, my clients have tried all of the above. And, to be honest, I’d have to say that I’m sure that to some degree they have there pros and cons like any other program. However, I’d like to suggest a different way to go about stuttering treatment.
And, here it is...As a professional, you probably already realize that you don’t extra points for not stuttering in interviews, meetings, high-level conversations or presentations. But, you do get extra points for being an excellent speaker-communicator.
Ever hear anyone say, “Wow she was amazing! She didn’t stutter one time.”? Nope. You’ve probably never heard that. But I’m sure you’ve heard, said or thought to yourself, “Wow, that was an amazing presentation. He’s an excellent speaker.”
So what I want to suggest to your here is that you make a major shift in your focus from trying to stop stuttering or treat stuttering, to “replacing” stuttering with smooth, clear, calm, confident speech. This is a huge paradigm shift.
Instead of focusing on ways to overcome, reduce, manage, treat, cure or otherwise get rid of stuttering, why not focus on becoming an excellent speaker? And, guess what? It even goes beyond this. Let’s focus on changing the way you think about yourself as a speaker. That is, transform your entire speaking identity. Now, why would you want to do this?
It’s simple when you transform your speaking identity,
* You stop thinking about yourself as a stutterer.
* You stop constantly worrying about stuttering.
* You stop avoiding situations that you believe you’re going struggle in.
Instead, you embrace and create speaking situations because you love speaking, you enjoy it. It’s easy and enjoyable for you. When you’re speaking identity changes, you feel more confident, bold and courageous. You want to get out, step up and speak up more. You feel free to express yourself. And, when you do, people tend to listen and take action.
So the question is, how can you make this speaking identity transformation? How can you shift from learning how to stop stuttering or treat stuttering with speech therapy to creating a brand new smooth speaking style that reflects your new and confident speaking identity?
