My Blue Ribbon For Public Speaking

My Blue Ribbon For Public Speaking

Today’s BrightSpot!

When it comes to public speaking do you find yourself in a state of sheer terror?

Don’t worry, if the thought of getting up in front of a group turns your knees to jello, you’re not alone and there is hope. Did you know that the fear of public speaking ranks at the top of the list for most people? For some it’s right up there next to fear of death. Hard to believe but it’s that scary for some of us. And we are in good company. Mark Twain who was one of the most sought after authors and speakers of his time, struggled until he finally triumphed over this same fear.

I was one of those people who dreaded talking to a large group of strangers. I was fine one on one and in small intimate groups but the thought of standing at a podium was horrifying. My heart would race, my palms sweat, and my knees weaken. I never thought I would be able to stand in front of a group and speak, never dreamed I’d be able to look at their faces, connect with them individually and actually enjoy it!

If you are like me, I know you will relate to my story of how that all changed for me. I spent years afraid… on the day I won my Blue Ribbon…I finally broke through that barrier and released my fear of public speaking! My Blue Ribbon BrightSpot is my brightspot.
