There are only two types of public speakers in the world: (1) the nervous and (2) liars. ― Mark Twain
Let’s face it. We all feel nervous on stage. The most experienced speakers still get nervous. Realistically speaking, you and I may never get over our public speaking anxiety. We can learn to cope, prosper, and rocket to speaking success despite the stampede of buffaloes in our stomachs and our knocking knees.
Accept the nervousness as a natural part of caring about your audience. My suggestion to help you deal with those presentation jitters: Know your introduction and rehearse it well. By the time your introduction is over, the adrenaline subsides and your nervousness will be behind you.
Now that you have gained some useful pointers on how to become a better public speaker, I encourage you not to stop here. Keep “sharpening your saw” by getting practical experience on public speaking. Grab the opportunity to speak in public as often as possible. The more stage time you accrue, the higher your self-esteem and confidence will become.
