"I fear public speaking more than death itself" I used to tell myself. But then finally one day I said NO MORE! It's such a useless fear to have, and there is no real danger it saves me from. So why hang on to it? The only thing it does is holding me back from the life I want, a life where I can just be myself.
I have now begun that journey, and I started by working on my speaking skills. I'm sure there are lots of great ways to do so, but I found it to be a good start for myself to start some place where I usually let myself go, all alone in my car. So if you do watch this video, Just be glad I don't include singing.
I searched YouTube for a great speaker, and I came over this speech by Eric Worre. After memorizing some of the speech, I could practice while driving the car. I'm sure I looked pretty crazy from the outside of the car, sitting there all by myself shouting out to myself. But more than worrying about that, I enjoyed the idea of finally getting rid of this strange and meaningless fear, or at least taking a step in the right direction.
Before I change my mind, the next step is to share this video just to get used to the idea of making a fool out of myself, without having to worry about it. So here goes.
I will find the original speech and post it here later, for you who may have gotten curious about that.
Next step after that will of course be to actually create my own speech of some kind, but first things first. Feel free to give me some feedback, maybe some tips on what I need to work on or just have a friendly laugh about it.
I just found the original speech by Eric Worre.
