He was teaching us about speaking in public – and how to do this confidently. Ha.
I do not! like speaking in public…at all. I do it because I think the message is important.
But I sweat and dread it and shake and my head goes fuzzy. I can’t breath and my mouth dries up.
We brainstormed all the feelings and physical side effects from the fear of speaking.
We looked at each thing alone…and we broke them down. He taught us tips on handling different situations, and
we really dissected each specific point that was brought up. And a lot of points were brought up. lol
The session was really interesting – we learned that we are no different from most other folks when they speak in
front of a crowd. We learned that we can only do our best. We learned how to answer hard questions and deal
with negativity from the crowd. All in all, it was well worth it. I don’t know if it will make my next experience any
easier… but I guess I’m willing to try!
