Stage Fright - Get over It!

Public Speaking,Career
People are a very interesting species. Once you turn 25, even if you weren’t a very “social” person, you must have encountered loads of different people. Some you found interesting, some seemed very strange to you, some you noticed, some you haven’t. Everyone is an individual, everyone has his or her own piece of mind, and that is the way we work. But there are those wonderful people, who have some gift. They are the ones who are different, but in a very positive way. These people should share their gift with the world, because this is important. However, there are those who are afraid of doing that. They are afraid to get out there and speak, sing, talk, dance, or whatever their talent is. In this article I will focus on why this is bad, why these fears should be overcome and some of the ways you can do that.

Start slow…

No one expects that you overcome your demons overnight. You should take baby steps. Let’s assume you are someone who can play guitar and sing, but every time you try to do it in front of someone, your fingers start “malfunctioning” and your voice starts sounding like Bob Dylan (he is an excellent musician and a very big influence, but really, his singing is a tad funny). What you should try to do is take some public speaking courses. There are loads of experts that will help you get in front of people and convey a message. This will build up your confidence, and boost your enthusiasm. After some time, you will be “ready to rock”, if you catch my drift. If you have a fear of public speaking, on the other hand, you can take up playing some sort of instrument, and start working on your speaking skills in a different manner.

Do not be afraid to ask for support

Your friends and family members will welcome your offer with hands wide open. In most cases, they have been waiting for you to say something like that for a long time. If you have someone to support you and give you a confidence boost when you need it, you will go a long way. Do not be afraid to ask. After some time, you can try and perform in front of them. This will be of much help to you.

Look for people who do the same thing as you

Again we go back to the guitarist from the beginning. If you are someone who plays some musical instrument, you should try and get a band together. Working with other musicians will get your creative juices flowing, and you will maybe create something that you will want to share with someone else and voila – you are close to overcoming your fears. The guitarist example stated here should be interpreted depending on whatever it is you are doing – if you are a stand-up comedian, an actor, a musician, a juggler, a writer, and an athlete – literally whatever.

Do not give up

It is important not to back out. This is where your support will come in handy, but at the end of the day, it is all up to you. If you make the first move, you should realize that you can and you eventually will overcome whatever it is you have to overcome. The title says “stage fright”, but all this goes for any kind of fear. Continue moving forward and you will reach the finish line – a rather logical sentence, don’t you agree?

So, to conclude, after reading this piece of text you have most probably realized that the most important thing to do is to start. Of course, everything stated above is not enough. If you are someone who has stage fright, and you have come to here in your reading, do continue searching for more info on the subject. You will get acquainted with other people’s experiences and opinions and this is very important to do. It helps a lot because some of the things you find might be able to help you all the way. I will stress this again – start overcoming your fear as soon as possible. After all, if you do have a talent, it is simply ignoble not to share it with the general public. You don’t want to be ignoble now, do you?
