Speech Anxiety is believed to be the single most common phobia affecting as much as 75% of the population, and as you have probably already heard, the fear is ranked higher than death! The word glossophobia comes from the Greek glōssa, meaning tongue, and phobos, fear or dread.
Speaking phobia rests in the unknown and can not be resolved unless you take on a deep understanding of its cause. Once you have a crisp understanding of why the symptoms occur, you can begin the process of taking control and reclaiming your life.
If you can learn to understand the elements of public speaking phobia, often also referred to as 'stage fright', you will quickly understand that the feeling of having an 'alien' inside your body is a sensation that many of us have once or many times experienced. With the right thinking and training, you will be able to re-channel your fear into a very energetic and exciting presentation.
Anyone who tells you they have little or no fear is either not being truthful. Without any anxiety at all about your upcoming presentation it's almost guaranteed you will give a dull performance, since those same chemicals racing through your body which are causing your heart to pound and your palms to sweat will also heighten your awareness and make your thinking sharper, so long as you project the energy outwardly and not inwardly, as this will cause the unnecessary reaction.
