Any guide to success in an endeavor will tell you that there is no magic formula to success. But in a lot of fields of endeavor, there seem to be “insider secrets”. And taking on the challenge of becoming a truly great public speaker is a noble ambition. But if you could learn the insider secret that makes the difference between good public speakers and great ones that would help you make that transition. Actually there is one great secret to what makes speakers that really shine in front of a group so great. But it is not magic or something that you can take as a pill, and an hour later, you are ready to stand up and dazzle the crowd. It is a very simple process that is something you already know a lot about. It is just simple, old fashioned hard work and preparation. The further in advance you can start getting ready for a presentation, the better your public speaking will be.
You know that feeling of terror that you experience when you address a crowd. Well, you may not be able to pinpoint why that feeling comes upon you. But many times it comes up because you are not completely prepared and you do not know what to do or how it will go because the material is not as well developed as it should be. If you put the work in on your presentation, it will make all the difference in the world when you stand up to give your presentation. First of all, make sure the content meets your standards. You should make that speech compelling and fascinating to you.
And if that presentation is full of great material, it will not only fascinate you but you will be eager to get up there and share what you know with your audience. And that eagerness to speak is a very refreshing feeling when it replaces that terror you felt when you did not work hard in advance to make sure the material was well developed in advance. Your audience will notice that big change in your attitude too.
