What is Your #1 Fear?
You can overcome your fear of speaking! 80% of your anxieties never happen. Faith destroys fears and answers desires.
1. Build your confidence.
One of the keys to effective public speaking is to become more confident. You have to believe that you are good in what you do; and, in order to achieve that, you need to be prepared by properly researching about the topic you are going to talk about. Aside from that, better confidence can also come from more practice.
2. Look at yourself on the mirror.
If you want to improve your public speaking skills, then you should practice in front of the mirror. By doing this, you would be able to see how you look like while doing your stuff. With that, you can see whether you need to improve your stance, the way you open your mouth, the expression of your eyes, and such.
3. Listen to yourself.
Practicing public speaking can go a long way, as far as giving your audience a pleasant experience in listening and watching you in front. However, you should also listen to your voice. Practicing your speech countless times can help. But, it would be better if you can record your voice, and listen to it, so that you can really hear how your voice sounds to your audience.
4. Practice your memorization skills.
Sharpening your mind can help you with public speaking. This is because, in most cases, when you have to present something in front of an audience, you have prepared a script for it. Improving your memorization skills can be done by playing more mind games, or by simply reading books and trying to memorize a few paragraphs in it.

What a difference it would make if you spent time looking after yourself. If you surrounded yourself with friends who loved you, if you gave yourself a break every now and then, and if you told yourself you were doing great.
What if you really loved who you were, and you were satisfied with what you had?
Simple: you’d be content. You’d be healthier, happier, and more fulfilled. And that feeling would emanate from you and affect everyone you interacted with.
How do you get from here to there?
We need to change our thinking and the way we consider ourselves, and we also need to change the way we look after ourselves. What we eat, how we spend our time, and how we control our environment.
I liken this to looking after yourself the way a mother might look after her children. That means not only taking care of yourself physically by grooming, feeding, and making sure that everything else is done right – but also taking care of yourself emotionally. When you’re down, a good mother will tell you not to worry, and that you’re great. If we treated ourselves like this and internalized that kind of affection, the world would be an easier, kinder place.

Need Some Answers? Want Help?
Here are some questions I have been asked.
Q. How can I stop being so impatient?
A. We are in the same boat. I to am very impatient. I have learned to pace myself, and to wait. Just stop, close my eyes and take some deep breaths. Or count to 100. But, being impatient, I don't wait, I get things done. I bet that's you to. I hope this helps.
Q. How do I know if I am a follower or a leader, and how did you decide?
A. Neither. I found my own path. I am a creator, and it takes me on many paths, which I love. I like to work with words, and design.
I believe most creative people are on their own paths.
