In network marketing today public speaking is unavoidable.
Provided you really do it as a business you will be having a group after a while. You will have to speak up in front of others – may it be in a conference call or at a personal meeting somewhere locally or if you are really successful at building your network marketing business you will be asked to speak at the convention of your company.
Of course when you consider public speaking there may well be a fear element inside you, however, practice is the key.
I came across an interesting story about horses. Some horses graze on the side of the railroad tracks, seemingly not minding or fearful when trains rush bye them. And then there are horses who fear even their own shadows. How come?
Well, the horses who apparently graze near the railway track obviously have adapted – they overcame their fear by habit. Seemingly the grass tastes better by the railroad tracks, so by practicing grazing in spite of the trains, they faced their fears and overcame it.
The magic wand is practice practice and practice again. Practice by saying a few words here and there on calls, by speaking up in small more familiar groups until this constant practice will turn into habit and remove any lingering fear you have of public speaking. At times someone suggests practicing in front of a mirror – well, may be until you know what you want to say that may help, but it is not the same as speaking in front of an audience, YOUR audience.
Let’s assume you stand up in front of your team for the first time - you certainly will be having will have a supportive audience, eager to hear what you have to say. You are their role model – they know the will have to do it sooner or later.
By the time you receive the honour of being asked to speak at the annual convention of your network marketing company you will have acquired enough practice that you will be able to speak there without a fear problem.
Start at once – practice makes perfect and the more practice you get the better you will be. In the process also observe other speakers and make notes of what you like about them and what not and this will help you too.
