Public Speaking Fears - You don't own them!

Are you one of those people, who harbor public speaking fears? Congratulations. You are in good company. It has been confirmed by several surveys that fear of public speaking ranks very high among the most common universal fears. Are you curious to know where the fear of public speaking fits in the rank list? You will know in a minute. But before that, I would like to ask you one question. What do you think could be the number one fear of people? If you say, it is the fear of death, you are not quite off the mark. Fear of Death ranks second. It could not take the first position because the number one slot gas been occupied by the Fear of Public Speaking!

I don’t know whether the above information has just surprised you or has stunned you into disbelief. But I am sure that it would have given you some relief. After all, you are not alone, afraid even to disclose your public speaking fears. Now you can relax with the comfortable feeling that millions of people all over the world share your fears.

Now that you are relaxed, I can comfort you with another truth. If you are relaxed, you are free from any anxiety and fear. Relaxation is the antithesis of fear, because fear and relaxation cannot exist at the same time. This means that you have already begun to rid yourself of public speaking fears! You may protest saying that you are not in a situation of public speaking now. Very True. What is also true is that there is nothing like a ‘public speaking situation!’ If you are capable of speaking to one person without any fear (exclude your boss for the present! We will rope him/her in later!!), you can speak to 10000 people. In fact, speaking to 10000 people has an advantage over speaking to one person. One obvious advantage is that none of them is going to talk back to you! Focusing on this one advantage alone can help drive out your public speaking fears.

You can convert Public Speaking Fears into Pleasures of Self Realization!
