    Hey Dave. As it’s well known, fear of public speaking comes before fear of death. Although it’s an exaggerating statement I think, but I totally agree with you that it’s all about a mindset. We can easily change our mindset about anything in life but when it comes to public speaking, our mind can be so rigid. It takes lots of practice. The techniques you mentioned in your article are great and yes, they work. I will add to them one point which is to be well prepared, meaning, you know your material well. I really enjoyed reading your article as I’m a big fan of this subject šŸ™‚

      You are welcome Mona,Ā 

      I also have to say that the saying, fear of speaking comes before the fear of death, is quite exaggerated for me too. šŸ™‚

      But the thing is, people who fear public speaking are those who have allowed themselves to feel timid and given their minds limited ability.Ā 

      And it is only by realizing the true abilities of your mind which you have, that you will be able to break the strong wall of fear, and the Mind Twist really comes in handy in that area.

      Iā€™m really happy you stopped by Mona. šŸ™‚

    What a great article.
    I have done some public speaking myself, although very few times, and it can be very nerve raking.
    I wish I had this information before I ever did my first appearance.
    I have bookmarked this post as I will be coming back to reference it next time I need to do some public speaking as I am relatively new to it, and will need more practice.

      Hey Wayne,

      I hear you mate šŸ™‚

      I was also very anxious and fearful of standing before a huge crowd, talking less of speaking.

      But the mind twist practice came to change all that in due time.

      And I also believe it is going to come in handy for you as well. Please remember to follow the instructions strictly as listed down in the post.

      Also, remember to come and share with us your experience with the practice when you get into it.

      Cheers. šŸ™‚

    What a nice practical approach to overcoming anxiety. I think we all suffer from symptoms of anxiety and not necessarily just before a public talk or a presentation. We all need to learn to be at ease with our own self, right? What happens if you practice this for more than the time you are recommending? What a great practice. Thank you!

      Hey Jackie,Ā 

      Thank you for stopping by.

      You are surely right. We really need to be at peace with ourselves and surroundings.

      Well, to answer your question, if you do the practice for more than the time I have given, it will be even better for you as you will be making your mind become much stronger and activating more mental energy for yourself.

      The thing is, 2 to 3 months is the time you will start seeing the huge benefits of the practice as at this point your mind will have started making the transition, and just like a muscle, the more you work on your mind, the better and stronger it becomes.

      Cheers. šŸ™‚
