The fear is real. Even famous actors and successful politicians can have stage fright. The difference is they have the tools to manage it and turn the energy into a positive.
The moment you’ve dreaded is here. The murmur is slowly dying down as seats are taken, voices become hushed, and one pair of eyes after another begins to focus on you. Some faces are smiling in expectation, while others stare blankly at you, waiting for the show to start. You feel your throat closing, your heart pounding out of your chest, and your tongue drying up in your mouth.
You try to smile, but your face feels as if it’s paralyzed. Your rehearsed opening statement seems to have vanished from your memory, and all you can focus on is the feeling of panic that once again has taken complete control over your body and mind. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The stories and techniques prescribed in this New York Times bestselling book have helped many thousands of people globally overcome their fear of public speaking, and present ideas and proposals with confidence and clarity.
