No shame... most people feel nervous whether they’re faced with the daunting task of speaking up in the boardroom, or getting on-stage in front of 300 people. (There is no difference!)
Public speaking can be especially scary if you’ve been 'volun-TOLD' to do it, a la 'Oh, could you just say a few words?' and you’ve not prepared anything at all. Who enjoys that?? Very few people.
Earlier this week, I spoke with Koya Webb all about how to overcome obstacles in your life, and learn how to face your fears. And one thing I started to realize when we were chatting was how much power we (okay, let’s be real… I) was giving the things I was most afraid of doing in my life.
In my mind, to overcome your fear of public speaking, you need to practice (with a whole lotta repetition) these three core things:
- Cultivate your courage
- Give yourself grace
- Own your voice
Let’s simplify that…
You can do this, I believe in you.
It’s time to SIMPLIFY.
