Delegating in How to be a Public Speaking Star
Preparing is the ultimate solution for writing a speech and delivering the speech on stage. Still, while preparing is essential, other areas of consideration need to come in play. Preparing means that you will ready yourself the night prior to your speech. If you have important calls to make, it is wise to take care of the calls the night before, otherwise try to get up earlier to make those calls. The best solution is not adding more weight on your shoulder the night before your speech.
During the evening before your speech get ready your clothes, speech, and other essentials you will need. In the morning, be sure to eat a healthy breakfast without overeating. Try to practice some breathing exercises, stretches and other exercises before going to the speech. Exercises will give you energy.
While writing your speech try to avoid writing in areas where you will be interrupted. You will need to concentrate, brainstorm, and use your skills and creative side to write an effective speech.
It is also important to time yourself as you practice speaking the speech out loud. This will help you to get pass the nervousness you may feel. You will need to ask yourself questions also that will help you to write and deliver a quality speech.
For instance, ask yourself what is the point of your speech? What is it that you want from the speech? Once you pull your answers together you can get the small tasks out of the way and work on the bigger job, working toward the finish line. You can also ask if you are self judging yourself as you write. If you feel that you are self judging find a way to abandon the act. Remember you can be your own best friend or your worst enemy.
Perfection is what many people work toward, which they fail time and time again. Realize that you are human and you will make mistakes, accept those mistakes, learn from them and move ahead.
As you write the speech and read it aloud, ask yourself if you would feel impressed at the outcome of your speech? Ask yourself if you will feel overwhelmed, bored, depressed and so on as you write your speech and prepare to deliver the speech. If you feel this way, don’t think the audience may not pick up where you left off, thus revise the speech so that it will impress you as well as your audience.
While writing your speech and reading it aloud, ask yourself if you can make changes that will better the speech? Is the spelling and grammar corrected so that I won’t stumble along the way?
During the process of writing your speech make sure you put the most important part of your progress first and work through accordingly. If you are off playing football with the boys and not writing your speech, thus expect a let down, since the quarterback has broken a leg.
Now we come to delegating the task in becoming a public speaking star. Can you pull this speech off alone? Do you need support? Do you need healthy critiquing and/or feedback? If so ask friends and/or family members if they are willing to help you along the course of finishing your speech. You can ask them to listen to you while you give the speech and then ask them what they thought. While giving your speech, rather writing the speech you will need to research to verify facts. Therefore, pull out your resources and put them to good use.
