Benefits of Mastering Public Speaking

By Norman Tuker

Public speaking is a specific field as on one hand it causes fear and anxiety among great number of population, and it can also bring great emotional satisfaction to those who master it on the other hand. So it's hard for most, but can bring fulfillment for those who are willing to do the work of learning it. I'll also explore some benefits of becoming familiar with the art of presentation in greater details below.

First as I wrote in the introduction, this can be great experience. If you're doing it right, you can see a change in people who are listening to you. The feeling of being in contact with big group can be really fulfilling, especially when you're able to bring some value to these people. If you can see that they'll be able to do better in their lives thank to you.. there are not many things more emotionally satisfying.

Here's more advice: In an article I read, Les Brown recommended that one Speak for FREE until you are sure you've got the hang of it. Burt Dubin agrees, having passed the same route to success himself. In the introduction video on his website, he says "If I, a high school drop out can do it, then so can YOU! " I would add that IF Abraham Lincoln, with all the odds stacked against him could have done it, via self-study (and in spite of myriad failures), then so CAN YOU! I followed Burt's advice from his many articles and newsletters, back in 2002, and before the end of that same year, I successfully negotiated and got paid for my first speaking outing here in Lagos.

Or stand in front of a mirror and speak as if you were speaking to an audience. This way you can actually see how you look while you're speaking. Also be sure to project your voice. What can be worse than a speech you can't hear?

He had only a few months of schooling, and so lacked access to formal learning institutions to pursue his passion for speaking. But this did not deter him. He adopted self-study methods, and practiced endlessly. Today he is remembered as one of the greatest speakers the world has known. So, sometimes it could actually be a blessing in disguise that you have to self-study.

Indeed, access to public speaking training school does NOT guarantee you will become a successful speaker! That outcome depends mainly on your INTEREST, DESIRE, and PASSION - demonstrated in the energy you will pour into doing all the studying, thinking and practicing that will make you develop into a good speaker. You alone ultimately determine how good you will become - and NOT necessarily your attendance of a public speaking school.

FINAL WORDS: A PERSONAL Mentor CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR YOU: I honestly believe that if available, the quality of INSTRUCTION your receive in the art of public speaking can make a difference in how you turn out as a speaker. A competent mentor will know how to help you discover and develop your FULL potential. S/he will guide you, drawing from his/her past personal speaking experiences and also from studying other speakers. But you know what? S/he, i.e. your mentor, does NOT need to meet with you physically, to play this important role. Indeed, today's technology makes it much easier to receive instruction on almost any subject, regardless of distance or geographical location - public speaking being a good example.
