Editorial Note: Negative thoughts and behaviors can greatly affect the effectiveness of your public speaking. That’s why I chose to run this particular story today. You need to believe in yourself, your topic and your abilities in order to be a good speaker.
There are self help books out there that can teach you how to take control of your life but unless you begin to want to make the change yourself, and you are ready and willing make the changes, then these books will only sit on the shelf and they will not help you. For many of us some of the reasons that we stop ourselves from succeeding is that someone has told us so many times that we are a failure and we have one to believe this repeating these conversations in our heads subconsciously while we are asleep.
These negative statements or trash prevent someone from succeeding in one’s personal life. Once we recognize that we are doing this to ourselves, then and only then, then we consciously make the changes one needs to make in order to succeed. The first step is to give yourself permission to succeed while at the same time recognizing that the you who are telling you this hour only read heeding the things they are telling themselves and their fear that you are better than they are.

Self Esteem + Self Confidence + Self Respect = Self Worth! Self = Net Worth – What Are You Worth?
By Featured Speaker Bob Urichuck

The self esteem which evolves on the inside is usually reflected on the outside. Your internal self worth which consists of your self-esteem, self confidence and self respect will become your external net worth. It is a matter of pride in who you are and the mentor you can be.
Compare an individual with strong self esteem and high net worth to another with weak one and low net worth. What are the obvious differences? Does self esteem play a major role? Of course, it does. It is the essence of a personality. Strong self esteem produces confidence in oneself.
Working on your public speaking skills can affect more than just your ability to speak to groups of people. Improving your public speaking skills can raise your self-worth and confidence. In Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, realizing your self-worth ranks the highest. When you’ve given a good speech, your personal […]
