Your heart starts to pound, your mouth gets dry, your hands get sweaty, your brain goes blank, and you feel like throwing up. What’s going on? Welcome to the wonderful world of speaker’s anxiety.
Fear of public speaking is the most common of all phobias. It’s a form of performance anxiety in which a person becomes very concerned that he will look visibly anxious, maybe even have a panic attack while speaking. Many people find it uncomfortable; but for some people, it is so daunting that it makes them feel really sick. In fact according to many surveys, the average person ranks the fear of public speaking higher than the fear of death.
But whether you love it or hate it, all of us know that it is inevitable if we want to achieve success in our professional and personal lives.
