For many of us to be the center of attention — not an easy task, and often an unpleasant necessity. To be behind the podium, “the head of the table”, “Board” — in a word, in front of an audience — great work, any public appearance is associated with all kinds of worries. Here’s how to cope with them, and try to find out.
“I will forget”
This is the most common concern. And you can win only one simple way: rehearse, rehearse and rehearse again! If this report is read it aloud several times, try to memorize the text, comprehend it.
If it’s entertainment room, you need to learn the words, the melody, memorize the sequence of its execution. After all, the idea what will happen at the meeting, will not spend time and effort in the most important moment of hesitation – “So what’s next?” — and to concentrate on performing to the best of it.
“My speech will be boring”
To not give the audience get bored, go away by yourself. You can practice at home — try to imagine that number or the report is a fascinating story that has a beginning, development, climax and denouement. No matter what the theme of his “inter-regional communication holding companies” or this song is about something like “Ramamohanarao”. All can be used to transform inspiration and imagination.
If you add in my speech of emotion, to fill it with colors intonations, accents to build the report or the room will definitely make it dynamic and interesting.
“I’m so worried that I will faint”
Unfortunately, the jitters can do nothing. This is a normal condition before the performance. The only thing that remains is to calmly (as possible) to think that you are well prepared (practiced!), all remember (though it seems that he forgot completely) ready to rock the hall (even if you barely stay on your feet), and generally better than you, the speaker/singer/actor not to find in all the Land (never mind that it’s debut)! In short, more vigor and optimism.
Coming on the scene, if you have the opportunity, to honestly admit to the public that you’re worried. So you Express your emotions, and you don’t have to pose as “the good soldier Schweik”. And the audience will appreciate your sincerity and will become a bit more forgiving and kinder. According to the testimony of practitioners is an effective method.
And estimate soberly, without a tremor: what happens if you fail the speech? Surely the world will not collapse, is not likely to suffer any one person, and most importantly — you will feel alive and healthy. So worry the health — for courage, and terrified of the upcoming performance is still not worth it.
“I’m not the audience will like it”
Audience — the most important people on the show. Their reaction depends on your success. So try to make friends with them. Appearing before the audience, be sure to say Hello to them. If you have declared — leave the audience with a smile. And in General, smile during a performance. So gently and lovely: the beeches little chance to impress.
Try to contact with the public constantly, at least visually: talk like explain your report to everyone sitting in the hall. Sing, laugh, play — not for himself, admiring her own lovely person, but for the audience, only for them.
“The audience did not appreciate”
Agree, you can probabdity an interesting report so that no one somehow will not appreciate its excellent content. You can sing a song quite normal to get all the notes and don’t even drop the MIC, but somehow to earn the only liquid and absolutely expressionless applause. Or tell a funny story in the company, but somehow, after her hilarious finale to see only puzzled, stiffly smiling faces of comrades. What’s the catch?
The fact is that successful performance on stage, the person needs to be ableto give the audience the energy, to share with her something positive. The scene does not tolerate the secrecy and greed emotions. There is also no place for negativity in any form: depression, hostility and anxiety. So think about what good you can share with your audience.
If this is a scientific report, for example, that — the pleasure of your discovery, if the story of your project — ideas, which, in the incarnation, will make life better. If it’s a song with feelings, which causes you to tune the internal sense of the beauty of music, and if a funny story is my sincere joy and infectious laughter.
You’ll see, the audience will react to your message. And, by the way, will repay you the same: how much you give them, so you and back — in the form of applause and compliments.
“I just can’t”
Remember how in “Kill bill,” the teacher told the heroine uma Thurman, when she tried to knock a wooden Board: “you shouldn’t be afraid of wood, and the wood that should fear you.” This rule applies in the case of public speaking: you shouldn’t be afraid of scenes, and scene — you. In public it is better to be audacious than sluggish, better loud than quiet, bright is better than dull. So there is nothing to be ashamed of. Set yourself up for the fight and certainly to win: you will succeed!
Feel how good it feels to give everything to the audience, to inspire them, to sustain with dignity the time of presentation and in response to well-deserved long applause! First feel it, imagining, and then bring to life on stage. Good luck!
