Even Actors Fear Public Speaking

(Clip is below.)

Fear of public speaking can happen to anyone. While Katherine Heigl acknowledges her fear, she was noticeably nervous as she gave a keynote speech honoring Shirley MacLaine.

She is using courage and faith to get her through. You can also tell that she has prepared and practiced.

Where is this nervousness coming from? It’s all in her head (which is where all nervousness comes from)!! She is super excited though and speaking from her heart. She looks great and gets a few laughs – I laughed too.

You can reduce 75% of your anxiety of speaking by preparing and practicing. Other than that:

  • Do things to get out of your head
  • Take the focus off of you – it’s not about you anyway.
  • Your talk is about the audience.
  • Focus on your commitment to provide value and make a difference.
  • Take deep breaths (not too many – you don’t want to make yourself dizzy!!).

Enjoy this clip:
