Fear of the stage? You’re not alone. Most people feel nervous and succumb to stage fright when they are asked to speak in public.
Most of us experience stage fright and it is a healthy response as long as you learn to manage it.
How do you keep it under control?
Managing your physical response.
Preparation Beats Stage Fright
Your confidence levels are going to be much higher if you are speaking on a topic that you know a lot about.
Visualize your success.Picture yourself delivering the speech in front of an audience. And imagine the audience hanging on every single word coming out of your mouth.
Practice Your Speech
Practice with intentionality.
Practice your speech out aloud. First with your notes and then without the notes.
Next, practice with an elevated heart rate. Go for a quick run before you practice your speech. Physical activity stimulates the biological response your body produces when you speak in public. Now you can practice calming yourself as you continue speaking.
Finally, record yourself practicing your speech. Making a video will help you find areas you could improve further.
Manage Your Physical Response
To help you manage your physical response, get in a flow zone before your speech.
You might pick a routine like Tony Robbins – he jumps on a trampoline to pump himself up before getting on stage.
There are many ways to prepare your mind and body for the platform. Play a song that puts you in an elevated mood. Take a few deep breaths and keep yourself hydrated with water.
