Working moms and busy business people can relax and enjoy public speaking by staying focused on what they want. Staying focused Is the challenge.
Let me explain
You can have a drink and experience stress relief before speaking in public or you can experience the joy of speaking in public naturally.
It was a beautiful sunny evening as I met some friends I had not seen for quite a while at this party. Renewing old acquaintances is always fun and an opportunity to catch up on good old gossip and do some networking.
At the party one of the speakers gave a passionate speech which was filled with emotion and wonderful stories of Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra and her incredible journey of stress relief in researching these beautiful women and what cosmetics and other beauty secrets these women used to help them make a difference.
At the introduction of her speech this speaker explained that she was not a good speaker, although her speech was spell- binding.
What this lady meant to say was that she had nervous jitters, was quivering in her boots and felt vulnerable before getting up to speak.
Why do we dread speaking in public?
There is a basic principle that you relax yourself and focus on what you want which will produce stress relief. However, most working moms and busy business people focus on the negative rather than the positive before speaking or any other endeavor.This is one of the reasons why public speaking is one of the most dreaded and nerve-shattering situations you can encounter because of your inability to relax and enjoy stress relief.
You seem to focus on the fear of how the audience is going to respond or how you are going to sound or screw up, instead of experiencing stress relief.
How do seasoned public speakers deal with the initial” jitters?”
Seasoned public speakers will tell you that stress relief comes as a result of finding a way or ways to breathe and relax. Secondly they will suggest that after you are breathing and relaxed, to focus on what you want and not what you do not want.
You got to breathe!!!
If you are not breathing nothing happens and you freeze up. When you freeze up then it is very difficult to focus.
Now that your breathing
As you learn to breathe, relax and focus on what you want then you will discover how easy and effortless it is to experience stress relief and speak before any audience.
Secondly the ability to relax naturally and experience stress relief without the aid of a strong drink can become second nature, an incredible feeling of freedom and an invaluable tool for working moms and busy business people to add to their stress relief tool box.
