If you’re too shy to speak to camera, get your voice heard during a meeting, or give a presentation on stage, then today’s I’m going to share 3 top tips to help you feel the fear…and speak up anyway!
I know you can work through that shyness and build the skill and confidence to be able to speak up and captivate people in just the way you want to.
How do I know? Because I’ve been there, too.
As well as growing up with a stammer, I also suffered from being really shy. In fact, even today whilst I can talk in front of hundreds of people at an event, record videos to camera like this, or even put together whole online courses, when I don’t have my speaker or trainer’s head on, I still get shy. The only difference is that nowadays when I feel shy and remember how that used to make me step back and almost become invisible, today I have recourses that help me lean into that shyness and as Susan Jeffers said in her book, ‘feel the fear and do it anyway.’
That’s why in today’s video I share 3-things I do that I hope will help you too next time you’re feeling too shy to speak.
Let’s jump in!
- I am standing here
- The camera is on the tripod
- I’m rubbing the index finger and thumb together on my right hand
- The camera battery is fully charged
Remember keep in factual, and do not interpret, passing opinion or mind read. For example, DO NOT say:
- I’m standing here looking shy
- You’re looking bored
- People will know I’ll feeling nervous
