Are you in a Public Speaking Rut? TALLspeaking (Your Speech Coach)

Are you in a Public Speaking Rut?

Here are six suggestions to turn things around:
1. Believe in possibilities. Think back to a time when you first accepted your current position. Everything felt new and the possibilities seemed endless. It’s unclear how you got talked out of this idea, but after a few years of listening to lunchroom gossip and watching your co-workers wither, you found yourself resigned to a similar fate. Guess what? Things may not feel new anymore, but the possibilities are still quite endless. Your success and workplace happiness depends upon you believing that.
2. Believe in yourself. A storyteller once relayed this thought as he watched a 6-year-old child walk the top edge of a narrow brick wall some 8 feet off the ground. He suggested this child was only able to manage this feat because no one had told him it couldn’t be done.
Too often, people are willing to listen to naysayers and negative Nellies, until one day you find yourself unable to achieve even the slightest maneuver for fear of failure.
3. Believe it is OK to fail. Putting this fear aside is a good place to start when rethinking your position. Yes, you might fail. Yes, someone may not like what you’re trying. But what if you don’t fail? What if what you tried boosts production, adds to the bottom line, or simply makes life easier for you and your staff? The odds are better than most people think. But you must be willing to try.
