Three things float to the top of the list regarding fears people have. One is feeling safe! Another is death and the third is public speaking! There are three moving parts to a good speaker! The first category is voice quality! The rate of speed you talk, your tone and the pitch of your voice. This is just as important as the second moving part which is; consciously composing succinct messaging full of relevant information people want to hear. The third moving part to a good speaker is exuding confidence and passion, with a hint of persuasion connected to your message.

Thinking in pictures to create your signature TALK is paramount. I'm referring to the signature TALK that people will pay you to present. That unique speech you can put a price tag on. Creating a masterpiece is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Albert Einstein did it to create life-altering inventions to change the world. We see Einstein as a genius, but he claimed to have no special talent, he just visualized things! In simple he used his imagination. Could we have the same characteristics as Einstein? Heck yes! Einstein was known for his clear view of physics and the determination to solve them. He had the discipline allowing his imagination to "run amuck", and every achievement led to another. His wild imagination was a mere stepping-stone for the next discovery.
Visualization is the key in creating and designing your brilliant signature TALK. Your priceless imagination is worth its weight in gold. Imagination works best when you're relaxed and creative mood with ideas bouncin...
To convince someone, you have to convince yourself first. To give a persuasive speech you pull from your emotions. When it comes to memorizing your speech, it's easier said than done. In the broadcasting field we work with recording equipment to manipulate any and everything we say. Wish we had this software at the speaking podium. We have alarm clocks to remind us to wake-up, we have birthday reminders in Outlook, we have so many options to jog our memory. Pharmaceutical companies claim pills can make us remember better. We can go herbal and use Ginkgo compounds recommended by our Herbalist.
Here is the dill, pickle! The best method of memorizing the speech is the old-fashion way. Hard wire yourself! If you can capture an emotion or picture in your head relating to your speech, this is hard wiring. Are you with me? This raises the odds of recalling information when you want to say it. Let's break down your memory a notch. We ultimately want to store information, hold on to info and rec...
Ready To Bake Speeches are well thought and written classic TALKS pertaining to your expertise. It makes it easy when it's time to pull a rabbit out of your hat at a moments notice. This is the only way to avoid sleepiness nights before your big day behind the microphone. When speeches/TALKs are ready to bake you'll only have 3 components to think about.
1. Pace words per minute in your 20 minute speech/TALK
You'll need 2,500 words in your 20 minute TALK.
Don't mimic an auctioneer at 250 words per minute. Normal "words per minute" are 125 to 145 if you're a medium to fast talker.
Slow talkers pace their words per minute at 100 words, or When you're a slow speaker
2. Print 2 copies of your speech/TALK
Printing out 2 copies the night before your big day will save you huge amounts of anxiety. Have you ever went to print and you're low on ink, or technical issues pop up when you least expected? Print in 16 font just incase lighting is low or you misplace your glasses.
Life boils down to how your perceive yourself! Speaking with confidence and authority is nice, but it takes constant curiosity, wit, and intention to produce the right amount of believable thoughts to execute your plans. At some point you've perceived someone as the perfect public speaker, in fact everything you hear, see, and experience is your perception of good and bad.
If perception is our reality, then we have the control to align our thoughts to be seen and heard the exact way we imagine it unfolding.
