    1. Think carefully

    Think of it this way: It’s not about you! When we feel anxious before giving a talk, is the first thing we really think about?

    “I’m sorry about this”? “I can’t do it”? Or “this is not my thing, I’m not a bright person”?

    If your answer contained any of the above, then it’s time to change that!

    I know that anxiety about speech is not good at all and makes you focus on how bad you feel, instead of what really matters: the response of your audience.

    Put yourself in their shoes and think about what they hope to find in this presentation. What is most important to them? How well do you speak fluently or fluently, or what content do you share?

    It will always be the last.

    So relax, and focus on the information you are sharing.

    2. Greet and smile to your audience

    Do you feel the same way when you talk to your parents, siblings, or acquaintances? Not really, is it?

    This is because you share an obligation with them, so you should do the same with your audience.

    You have to make them believe you are here to connect with them and make a difference or make a difference in their lives.

    One of the most effective ways of feeling like you are in a relationship with your audience (so feel free to take things in stride) is to take a moment to let that happen. Do that during your greeting.

    Charge yourself at this time, let the audience know that you really enjoy being there. And, you will feel it too!

    3. Let us enlighten the audience to enlighten them

    Standing in public while speaking sounds like standing alone in the bright light of a lamp, where everyone can see your movements.

    But in reality, you are not alone. All those people who come to listen to you are not there to judge you, but to learn. And they can have a lot more to offer!

    So why not give them a mic mic sometimes? Let the light shine on them, through change, and connect with your audience.

    This will make you feel less alone, more connected and as a result more comfortable.

    4. Do not cover the topic, talk about it

    Put yourself in the shoes of your audience and think of your favorite expressions.

    Is it a 1-hour talk where the speaker delivers the talk, or is it a 2-minute talk with a speaker?

    Speeches are popular when they talk a lot.

    Your senses of speech come from the thought of being present to give a SPEECH. In fact, you will be talking to specific people.

    And you do that every day, don’t you? Now why are you so nervous at this time?

    5. Rotate

    When we are in a state of shock, it releases adrenaline into our bloodstream. It is called the “war or flight” response because stress hormones push us to physically fight the threat, or to escape quickly.

    Because of this, we feel like we are cooking up pressure while talking to a group.

    When we stand together, this pressure continues to grow. So, go! Release the pressure. The best part is that when we go, the audience feels comfortable.
