How To Feel Confident In Front Of Your Audience


How To Feel Confident In Front Of Your Audience

One of the most common fears that people have is the fear of public speaking. According to statistics, 41% of people report feeling some level of anxiety or fear when speaking in front of an audience. This fear frequently shows up as excessive sweating, sweaty palms, elevated heart rates, memory loss, blanking out, nausea, and occasionally difficulty breathing. Many speakers who have been in front of audiences for years still experience some level of anxiety.

You'll need to find some ways to deal with your anxiety because having this fear frequently has no bearing on whether you have to give a presentation or not. Knowing that you are not alone and that you can make advance preparations will help you take the first step toward significantly lowering your level of fear. Here are a few more intriguing stats.

- A good delivery and practice run of your speech can reduce your fear by roughly 75%.

- Breathing exercises can further reduce your anxiety by 15%.

- Getting ready for your mental state can help you overcome the final 10% of your fear.

In light of these facts, here are some preparation suggestions to ease your nerves and help you feel less anxious before speaking in front of an audience.

1. Understand the setting in which you will speak. Arrive early and explore the area to get a feel for it. Be aware of the size of your venue and the distance that exists between you and your audience. You'll start to feel more at ease as you get used to the situation on stage.

2. Know your target market. You should identify the members of your audience and conduct research on their preferences. Say hello to them when they walk into the room and take some time to get to know a few people.

3. Know every detail of your presentation. How can you expect to feel fearless if you don't know what you'll be presenting?

4. Use breathing exercises to help you unwind. Scientific research has shown that breathing exercises can energize the body and help you get rid of anxiety.

5. Before going on stage, visualize yourself there. Play back in your mind scenes from your presentation that was a success. You'll find success if you visualize it.

6. Your audience wants you to succeed, so remember that. Their fulfillment is a result of your success. They have a personal stake in your success if they paid money to attend your presentation. They have a personal interest in your success if you are offering training. If you're giving a commencement address at a nearby university, the graduating class is personally invested. Get the picture? Your target market wants you to be successful.

7. Try not to make your anxiety obvious. Many people won't even be aware of your anxiety. Most of the time, when you have your audience's attention, you'll discover that they are actually thinking about themselves. They are taking in what you are saying and figuring out how it applies to them.

8. Recognize that your message has a purpose. You need to communicate a message. You may occasionally be passionate about a cause. Other times, your employer might require you to conduct training.

Your success is dependent on your preparation! Prepare, prepare, prepare! By being prepared, you can also dispel the majority, if not all, of your fears.
