Does your heart pounds as strong as mine while giving a speech? When you see all eyes are staring at you and all ears are directed towards your voice? It can make you fumble and overwhelmed at times but this can affect the way you start your speech. The first word that comes out of your mouth will be the anchor that will decide whether the audience will stick to what you say or not? It matters. There are ways to overcome the fear, anxiety, and nervousness to be the point of attention. So let’s get started and find ways that will keep your heart away from your throat; on its right place.
While thinking about how to give a speech; the most common mistake that people make is worrying too much about the wrong things. Like what they are wearing. Or whether their hair looks good. Appearance matters, but there are things which matter even more. This is the time to calm yourself down and be yourself. Be the real you. Talk to yourself before talking to other selfish people, strangers that will not help you. Clear all your doubts and make a move. This is your time where you must take a break for few moments and give yourself a motivational speech. Head out and find a peaceful place to relax yourself and focus.
These things helps you a great deal as you enjoy being yourself and this also helps you to regain the confidence and wipes away any doubts that you have for yourself. What most speakers mostly do in order for their speech to sound different is to make it complex. This is where they try to impose things on themselves and get lost somewhere in that dungeon of extra doings. The main focus should be on keeping it simple and easily understandable. Just be yourself and communicate the basic idea. This can give an amazing start to your speech, as you will start as a pro; calm, contended and confident.
There is nothing like being fully prepared in whatever you do. One important step in making yourself confident is to know all about what you are going to say and being sure about it. If you are not fully prepared and lack knowledge on whatever you are going to speak on; will make you nervous and concerned and this will flow to your audience.
Body language makes a difference in how you deliver your speech; but it depends upon how you will initiate your speech. What will be your gesture, how are you standing, are there wrinkles on your forehead, are you making nervous moves? These are the things that can make a lot of difference in how you start your speech.
If you know how to start a speech with confidence and power; you can do wonders with your presence. This is an important tool as people get inspired by clarity, wisdom, confidence and all this coming in clear, easy to hear attitude
