Public speaking

A lot of people get nervous when they have to speak in front of an audience or make a presentation in front of co-workers. I’m that way too, and I recently had to give a presentation about my job. As you probably know, there are lots of things that can be done in these situations to relieve tension, like taking a deep breath. It’s also said that if you write the Japanese character for hito (person) before a speech , you won’t get nervous. It’s kind of good-luch charm.

However, I recently lerned a logical method for reducing nervousness that a certain English professor recommends. This is just to change the way you think about the coming event. Everybody gets nervous before speaking in public; that’s natural. However, most people just try to get rid of the feeling of nervousness, and that seems to have the opposite effect from the one intended.

FIrst you need to think about why you’re nervous. Doing this prepares you to take action. Again, nervousness is natural, and everybody feels the same way before intimidating events. Next you need to accept your nervousness and realize that it will help you avoid mistakes and prepare you to act.

I thought about this before my speech, Although I was nervous, it worked well. Thinking about things in a different way and changing your assumptions is sometimes helpful.
