How to Prepare Yourself for Public Speaking

Learning how prepare yourself for public speaking will make you ready to stand up and deliver.1 Here’s another note about speech preparation.

The art of speaking is so simple that it is difficult.

There is a wrong impression that in order to make a successful speech you must have unusual natural talent in addition to long, arduous, and disciplined study.

Do you, when asked to make a speech, fear the very idea of speaking?

I know many stories of people that once they commit themselves to a speaking assignment, spend anxious days and sleepless nights in mental agony, much as a criminal is said to do just prior to his execution. When at last they attempt their “maiden effort,” they are almost always unfit for their task because of the unnecessary waste of thought and energy wasted in fear.

What is the right way of preparing for a speech?

Focus your preparation not only on the speech, but of the self: physically, mentally, and spiritually. When you are physically, mentally, and spiritually ready you can deliver speeches that inspire any audience anytime, anywhere.
