You may have read about the survey that showed fear of public speaking is the second most common fear. The first is fear of being burned alive. The ability to speak before a group is important, even if you are not going to be a professional public speaker. You may have to give a talk in class, want to give a presentation to a group, or even speak before a large audience. Success in business often requires public speaking skills. You should take whatever opportunity you can to practice public speaking before a friendly audience, and use self hypnosis relaxation for stress relief to calm yourself down before you start. Take a few minutes by yourself before you start speaking to concentrate on your breath and focus your thoughts. You can use notes, but don't read from a script.
