Speech Anxiety is ranked as the #1 fear on the planet.
But the question is: Why?
We often assume this random fact to be fate. But the question is, can we do something about it?
Can we control speech anxiety & become a skilled public speaker?
The answer is... yes.
The reason you have speech anxiety stems from many variables. But the main reason is that we were not taught proper speech frameworks growing up.
We were just expected to figure it out public speaking.
That's like me giving someone a car & telling them to drive...when they have NEVER stepped foot behind a driver's wheel.
Yet, we expect the masses to just figure out how to learn a skilled act like Public speaking.
I use to have massive speech anxiety. Due to being shy, I thought learning public speaking was a pipedream.
Until I was introduced to a club called Toastmasters.
Initially, I thought the club was all about breakfast. And can you blame me?? It has the word 'Toast' in it!
But later on, I learned that it was a club to develop speaking skills.
Since then, the journey has been a wild one.
- During my time in Toastmasters, I graduated from a guest -> member -> mentor-> recruitment chair -> External Vice President.
- I've choked speeches, done great speeches, participated in speech competitions, spoke in conferences, gave keynote talks & much more.
'What was the main thing that you learned?'
The main thing I learned was that PUBLIC SPEAKING is a SKILL.
That means it can be learned, practiced, and mastered.
Take some time to digest the line above.
The NUMBER 1 fear on this planet is a skill? That means you have more power than you could have ever imagined champ.
In this book, I distill down years of public speaking principles into an easy to read entertaining book.
