SOUND ADVICE

I came across a site where there was a wealth of Helen Keller’s wisdom to choose from.

If you haven’t heard of her, here is some more detail about her history.

I greatly admire Ms Keller and her courage and capacity to forge a life for herself.

 

The Danger of Speaking in Public

 

The quote in the poster below resonated with me when I was thinking about ways to capture what my clients are feeling when faced with speaking in public.

If you simply MUST find a way to speak in public, here is a way to look at the fear you have.

Avoiding ‘it’ is not the safer option, if you hesitate and take no action to address the fear, it will not save you.

The fear that holds you back will return again and again and stop you from speaking your truth.

UNTIL

 

You say ENOUGH! I can do this!

You can win at this public speaking thing!

You know the danger you feel is not the one that will kill you!

Even though you often think you are dying with fright.

Talk to someone, get some tips, take a course.  Of course, it takes courage, but you have taken the first step if you have said, ‘public speaking is a problem for me’.

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. (Helen Keller 1880 -1968)
