Speak Your Mind! Don't be Afraid!

Speak Your Mind! Don’t be Afraid!

Last updated May 27, 2014 admin 13 Comments

For most people, the mere thought of speaking before an audience causes men’s hands to go clammy and their hearts to pound like a kettledrum. Statistics show that people fear public speaking more than they do their own deaths. It shows that for the majority, people would rather die in silence than take a chance to speak their minds in society. Maybe it’s conformity and a fear of saying something irrelevant.

The importance in public speaking lies in the fact that as social organisms, the ability to get your message across in the right way will do more good for you than the attempt to do a better job. Hunkering down faithfully to work is virtually useless if the boss does not even notice it.

The importance of public speaking is that it is inevitable. Sooner or later, you will be forced to enter the arena and speak to a sea of eyes and ears. Before that happens, it would always be better to meet that challenge on your terms.

Here are some points to ponder:

1. Career

People at work who can communicate better go up the ladder faster. Employers prefer hiring people with public speaking and communication skills. This is because speaking with your colleagues puts them at ease about you, helps you get your job done faster, and gets what you want done across much more easier.

2. Mental

You feel better about yourself. Successfully speaking before a live, listening audience improves your self-confidence, poise, character and sense of fun. You become less self-conscious, nervous, and can control higher levels of stress. This does not mean you won’t make mistakes. Expect to make mistakes the first few times; learn from them, and keep on going. If you’re consistent, that paralyzing fear of speaking to a large audience will be a thing of the past.

3. Opportunities

Public speaking positively impacts all aspects of your life. Being able to speak publicly opens up new opportunities unimagined in your former life. You will find yourself more eager to participate in causes you sincerely believe in, interact more with people of the opposite sex. You will find yourself assertively asking questions to clear up a problem, take the lead in a cause, or calmly explain a thorny situation without losing it. The effect of public speaking on your life is exponential.

Public speaking is an essential addition to the human repertoire. Technical knowledge is just as vital, but the ability to speak well takes your abilities and talents beyond the borders of your own skin and into the hearts and minds of others.

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
    or hints? Appreciate it!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something
    concerning this.

    I was curious if you ever thought oof changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
