It is the number one fear for most people. That fear stems from a lack of self-confidence that started in childhood.
How can you overcome the fear of speaking? Face the fear. Know your subject, analyze your audience, and practice, practice, practice. The anticipation of speaking is often more agonizing than the actual presentation. 80% of your anxieties never happen.
Fear results from too much thinking. We generate fear while we sit. We overcome fears by acting. Fear is nature's warning to get busy. Believing in yourself is another key.
Breathe. Take Deep breaths.
