How to overcome that pounding heart beat and shaking

Postby anewearth » Wed Jul 01, 2020 2:05 pm

Hi Everybody,

Just getting comfortable with Public Speaking has really been a journey for me, when I have to give a presentation, talk in a senior meeting or even in a speech its like my head just literally goes into animal mode and my body acts as if I have taken the latest speed drug, it's so embarrassing, the worst part is the hand shaking . This did not change even when I was giving presentations and stuff online.

The truth, what really helped me overcome it was practice , practice and more practice after then you can start to think about homing your skills, it's getting over that “fear” first which for me was the real challenge.

I like to think of it as swimming, first you have to get over the fear of the water before you can work on your olympic winning front stroke.

I really want to give something back and help people overcome this, it's become a passion of mind to try help and motivate.

So if you would like to practice a speech/Presentation or meeting with a “simulated” online audience get in touch, I can provide some tips as well. This is not a gimmick or anything, there are no costs involved.

I just want to help people get over this and you will also help me as I am working on a public speaking social anxiety online aid to allow all of us to get to enjoy the fear of public speaking.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for sharing the post. I’m on the same boat. Anytime I have to speak up in a work meeting, my heart starts going at 100 miles per hour and I start losing my chain or thoughts because of the fear. I need a platform to practice speaking more often. What do you recommend?
