“The take-home message is this: If you want to build your confidence in public speaking, you have to go out and do some. You will be nervous, because everyone is. It will get better the more you do it though, so accepting this and getting through the initial nerve-wracking talks will send you on the way to speaking more comfortably in time.”
It’s true. The more public speaking you do, the more comfortable you get with it, and maybe most importantly, you learn that when something does go wrong, nobody dies. It’s not really that big of a deal most of the time. Not nearly as much as we imagined it to be while we worried about it going wrong.
