The Habits Of A Great Speaker

The Habits Of A Great Speaker

Alicia Thompson

If you want to be a good public speaker, then you are going to need to work on your habits.

Good habits are the key to becoming successful in this world

In other words, you cannot achieve good results if you don't try hard and set the intention of doing something the right way. It's better to cut yourself off from success every day. This is possible and predictable. It was not a sudden attack of genius.

He then quoted a famous person: "Opportunity is in favor of a prepared mind." If you engage in good daily habits, you are much better prepared when an organization contacts you to deliver a great speech.

With that in mind, here are seven daily habits that will gradually lead you to success as a speaker:

1. Scan the area for ideas. Whatever your area of ​​expertise, always look for new ideas, research results, or opportunities to test your thinking. It's about keeping it fresh, following new developments and making yourself the best expert. However, ideas, not applause, must motivate you.

2. Do your voice. Your choice is your most valuable asset. If you can, you are no longer a speaker; You are a mime. Develop exercises and regular exercises to keep your voice strong and ready. Never, never take it for granted.

3. Practice every day. This is especially important for speakers who speak less than 12 times a year, for example. Get used to giving short speeches in the car or in the bathroom, or if you are really brave when queuing on the DMV. Well, that last idea can get rid of your license, but there is a downtime every day if you can play a two-minute part of your speech to keep it fresh.

4. Surround yourself with the (positive) talker friend. The world of public speaking has a unique burden and tension. So get together with other people who accept it so you can share your thoughts with thoughts that understand them.

5. Check your goals every day. Always know where you are going and how to get there. Set goals and review regularly. Set specific goals for them, e.g. B. X number of speeches, "TEDx conversation" or whatever the purpose is. If you don't have goals, you don't know where to go and you don't know if you're making progress.

6. Exercise, eat right and get enough sleep. This advice must be understood, but when you are traveling it's hard to follow, so it's good to strengthen it.

7. Optimize something. After reading this extraordinary book The Magic of Changing Life, I tried to put it into practice. I made some progress, but was stuck in the assignment area in several rooms. So I redefined the task by deleting one object, every object per day. It is much easier and good results are achieved from time to time. When you approach the complexities of your work life in the same circle and find tasks that you don't have to do, you will immediately have a short list of the most important and more time in your day.
