Who all get nervous just thinking about public speaking??? I know I do. Raise your hand if you feel this way too so I don’t feel awkward over here standing by myself with my hand raised.
So, a few days ago I participated in a debate competition. And a minute before my turn, I was getting extremely nervous.
Side note: Signs of nervousness include – 1)Thinking so much at a time, that one doesn’t know what to think anymore.
2)An overwhelming urge to run away, to go back home and forget about the speech that was never spoken by one.
3)Sweating. A lot.
4)Unnaturally cold palms.
5)A prayer asked by one for an earthquake at the same moment as one’s speech. Also, any other natural disaster will suffice.
6)Wanting everyone in the audience to look away when one gives one’s speech.
So, what’s the solution? Five seconds before my speech, I had an epiphany.
The epiphany goes something like this – “I’m never gonna see any of you all ever again. Ever. Ever! So it doesn’t even matter if I mess up. You all won’t remember me anyway! The joke’s on you all. Muahaha! See you never suckers!!!
This thought can calm anyone down in an instant! This method has been tried an tested! And is 100% Ramexa approved!
So I’m planning to share a life hack every week. What do you all think about it? Do comment!
