Overcoming fear of public speaking.jpg

Public speaking is more feared than death - but it doesn't have to be!

Nor should it be - as being able to speak in front of others is a skill that is useful in nearly every area of your life.

So in this episode we explore the 5 helpful tips and beliefs you can use to manage your nerves and reduce your anxiety of being judged by an audience.

As someone who's now spoken to more than 100, 000 people, trust me when I say that these strategies are powerful when put into practice! .

Every time life offers you an opportunity to speak; it is offering you a chance to choose courage over comfort. And the more we do this, the more we up level our world.

So if you need to remind yourself of anything when you feel like you’re about to throw up on stage; remind yourself – you’re daring greatly.
And nothing is more admirable than that.
