Speech Review Chapter 1 - Nervousness – is normal, people tend to be anxious before a speech. It is healthy sign that they are getting “psyched up” for a good effort. It also keeps you on your feet, you heart races and you excrete adrenaline which keeps you on your toes. You have to make nervousness work for you by turning it into positive nervousness- a zesty, enthusiastic, lively feeling, with an edge; you become in control of your nervousness.” - Acquire Speaking Experience – like taking speech 1. - Prepare, Prepare, Prepare – Your knowledge of the topic will allow it to flow. - Think Positively – Negative thoughts will bring your enthusiasm for the speech down. - Visualization – Try to visualize finishing the speech, getting an A, getting the job ect . . . - Know That Most Nervousness Is No Visible - Don’t Expect Perfection – if you make a mistake when expecting perfection it brings you down. Only a fraction of the turmoil you are feeling inside is visible on the outside. Even though your palms are sweating and your heart is pounding, you listeners probably won’t realize how tense you are – especially if you act cool and confident outside. Chapter 4
