Presentation Foundation? How to overcome fear of speech

Speaking in the public is truly alarming for many. I understand. What I don't get, though, how truly awesome (even paralysis) it can be for millions of people around the world. Take a moment and look at the word "glossophobia" – a serious fear of the public.

Those who suffer from this say that when they speak (or even to the thought of speaking in front of a group):

• Their mouths dry up

• The voice begins to shake untimely [19659003] • Their body begins to tremble

• They begin to sweat, shake and suffer their heartbeat

We have all heard that the public speaks is the number one fear of people anywhere (over fear of dying). Seinfeld even said this in one of his episodes, as he said something like, "If it were true, most would rather be in the coffin than give the character!"

Why is a group registration very terrible for some? In courses, university teaching, and individual training, I ask people to explain exactly what scares them most about the general number.

Why are you afraid?

Here are just a few of the most common confessions:

• I sound like I don't know what I'm talking about

• I & # 39 I'll be stupid

• I can't answer questions [19659003] • I will freeze and forget what I should say

• I will be boring [19659004] For great little (fictional) views of how it looks, check out Don Knotts in classic movies: Ghost and Mr. Chicken.
