Fear governs quite a few of our activities. It makes us anticipate rejection, ridicule and failure. A very common fear is stage fright. Why is it that most of us fall prey to it? The answer is the possibility of goofing up on stage and being subjected to ridicule. How then do we handle such a situation?
Face it, yes it is possible that you might trip while walking towards the mike – be careful and it won’t happen and say it does happen just pick yourself up and walk on, you are after all human. Anybody can trip.
You may forget your words. Yes you may. But arm yourself with mastery over the language and you can improvise. Research your theme well and speak extempore.
Now think, is it possible to rid yourself of stage fright or at least handle it well? Yes, definitely. Have faith in yourself and work towards removing the shortcomings that could possibly cause failure and you can speak in front of any audience.
