- “According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”
- Jerry Seinfeld
- Do you hate public speaking? Do the words ‘And now please welcome to the stage….’ - followed by your name - send a chill down your spine and make you feel sick?
- Shaking hands, dry mouth and a blank mind are just some of the symptoms of Glossophobia. That’s the medical term for the fear of public speaking. There’s no denying it is a Thing. If you suffer from it, you are in good company. Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, Warren Buffet and Sir Richard Branson are just a random few of those who’ve experienced crippling stage fright at some stage. Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln both suffered from stage fright, and Judi Dench, Andrea Bocelli, Stephen Fry and Rihanna still do. In fact, stage fright is so widespread as to be universal. As Mark Twain put it: ‘There are only two types of speakers in the world. One: the nervous and Two: Liars.’
- This is a statement of fact: You can overcome your fear of speaking. And, by addressing the mindset and the blocks and challenges behind that fear, you can enhance the quality of your life. Not just in your career, but in every single aspect of your life. It can even be fun and starting from today I'll help you slay.
