How to Overcome the Fear of Public Speaking

Speaking in public is ranked right up there with beets
on America’s Most Hated listed.

When I was little, I was one of the millions that helped the ranking.

Here’s a diddy to help you understand why.

I recall going to an anniversary party for my grandparents. I was about 9 or 10. After the meal, everyone took turns toasting the two. My parents, relatives and even some of the younger cousins shared something about Grandma and Grandpa they admired.
So when it came to my turn, I couldn’t be the ONLY ones to not say anything. I was petrified because I had no idea what to say.

I stood up and clammed up. Nothing came out. Family members sat and stared wondering when I was going to start. Except I never did. I was even waiting for myself to say something like everyone else.

A minute felt like eternity and I ended up NOT saying one word. I sat down and cried.

Some people came up to me afterwards saying, “Hey they know how much you care about them- without even saying a word.”

Their words didn’t help, to me it was complete and utter embarrassment.

Imagine having that little memory haunting you growing up. Seeing my relatives following that made for an uncomfortable situation. This thought plagued me whenever I had to stand in front of large groups of people.

Contrast that story with a couple of talks I gave at some of Matt Furey’s seminars. Several people came up afterwards thanking me for my presentations. To boot, I made a King’s Ransom share of money in the process.

So how did I go from a mute in public to delivering outstanding presentations?

Besides having the tremendous opportunity to present in front of a great group of people, I improved my public speaking from one man. I began listening to Psycho Cybernetics and hearing about the “Theatre of Your Mind” by Dr. Matz. I took it a step further in creating a Success Visual around that theme. Leading up to both talks, I used the visual to focus on how I’d perform, what I’d share and most important how I’d interact with people. In the theatre of my mind I saw people smiling at me, happy they were in my presence. And most importantly, I saw them excited to hand me money and order forms. The tub became my focusing and relaxing spot to work on my speaking skills long before it ever took place.

This plus I no longer focused on the events that brought me down, rather more empowering ones.

Psycho Cybernetics connected with me so well because Dr. Maltz describes success using visual metaphors like the Theater of Your Mind. He describes loads of other visual images that are super easy to wrap your mind around. Being a recipient of my “visual” based success newsletter, I’m sure you would like it too. His powerful use of visual success imagery is extremely helpful because it activates your imagination – driving home the points even further – for more success to come to you.

It doesn’t matter you’re if your a sales professional making presentations or not, you’ll want to get your hands on this course. You never know when you’ll be asked to stand and deliver a killer talk in front of a room full of people. You don’t wait to get the course the night before – you do it NOW! Preparation starts today.

Because believe it or not the world judges you on the words you choose to speak.

Conceive, Believe, Achieve,
