Hone your Public speaking skills to Influence People

“The secret of success in life consists in knowing how to change men’s minds. It is the power that makes the successful lawyer, grocer, politician or preacher.”    - Dr. Frank Crane

To be successful in life a person needs to have a strong grounding on Public speaking skills. The ability of effective public speaking can bring about a positive influence not only in a person’s professional life but also in personal life too. We need to understand the significance of Public speaking in everyday life and should hone the skill of speaking in front of audience no matter large or small.

For the Public speaking blues the first thing which has to be kept in mind is that to shed inhibitions. We should make our minds up not to be self conscious while speaking as it is a process and should happen naturally. Firstly, we have to have a strong desire to speak in front of the audience may be it is a group of kindergarten kids or a team of Doctors. Everything seems to be possible in this world where desire acts as the driving force which attracts success.

Secondly, always have a plan mapped in your mind before you proceed with the actual speech. Then, have a clear mental frame on what you are going to speak. If one is sure of what he is going to speak and how he is going to speak will make the actual difference. Once the inhibitions are shed and you are sure of how you are going to speak you are half way through a successful speech.

 

Thirdly, imagine that you are a very good orator and act according to your plan with confidence. It cannot be denied that everybody would feel the butterflies dancing in our tummies before facing a large audience, but once you have the courage then you have hit the bulls eye. Practice is the only mantra for enhancing the skills of Public speaking. We should never lose an opportunity to speak in front of an audience-whether large or small, professional or personal. Practice by choosing a topic of your choice, stand in front of the mirror and keep talking to yourself. This activity boosts your confidence and also helps in channelizing your thoughts into a proper flow. This skill when honed would aid a person to influence people positively and to make successful relationships.
