My Mantra to be a Successful Public Speaker

Do you feel nervous about getting on a stage and delivering a speech?
Do you shiver and tremble while facing a larger audience?
This was definitely me some time back when it was hard for me to talk to people and keep my point/view in front of them. I was too scared of giving client presentations where I was a centre of attraction among the audience.
But something changed in the last year and public speaking is something that I enjoy now. It has become one of my hobbies. I can now stand in front of the audience with confidence and talk to them about a topic without any hesitation.
Do you want to know what worked best for me? How did I come out of this stage-fear and stepped on the stage every time with confidence?
Trust me there is no short-cut here. All it takes is:
• Believing in yourself
• Preparing your topic well
• Practicing it as much you can before you deliver it
If I can do it, anyone can do it.
