How would you feel standing behind that microphone?

Personally I love that picture and the experience that it offers!

Most people cannot say that….the experience of presenting to a group of people is uncomfortable for some….and terrifying for others.

Why? Because it still remains the #1 fear that people have.

Are you a part of that majority? Are you controlled by the FEAR of sharing YOUR knowledge. Information that YOU KNOW and understand….yet don’t have enough confidence to present your material?

You can change how you perceive that fear. You CAN control your fear, and actually present your material with confidence.

Two powerful techniques come into play here. And you can incorporate them and leave this fear of pubic speaking behind you.

The first technique is called Neural Linguistic Programming….commonly called –  N.L.P.

I want you to repeat this following sentence, word for word.

“I choose to be in control, feeling  calm and confident when I speak, is O.K. with me.”

…Now while saying this exact sentence, I want you to press your right thumb to the first finger on your hand. Say the sentence with meaning. Now take a deep, relaxing breath, and repeat this exercise, with each and every finger. After you have said it one time on each finger of your right hand…repeat this same exercise on your left hand. 

This 60 second exercise, should be repeated several times a day. This allows you to reprocess this fear, minimize it….and take control of your emotions.

This allows you to speak with confidence….about YOUR material that YOU already know.

The other key to taking it the next level….is practice your presentation at least 3 times to someone else. 

These steps are simple yet powerful.

Now implement them and make this well deserved change.

Last but not least, contact a professional skills expert, like “moi”..and discover how to make your presentation with credibility, clarity and confidence.

A Chameleon HAS to adapt to survive! What do you do to survive in your business?

Blending in….the critical component!

As you grow your business, do you find it difficult to adapt to the environment?

My father use to say to me “Eileen always understand that nature is seldom mild in the wild.” That makes so much sense the more I experience the world of business.
With the intensity of competitive social media.
The ongoing pulsating factor of the internet…
always on – always going – never asleep – one is constantly adapting to the changing needs of a customer or unfocused employee. Do you have a team member not contributing their fair share to the team? Are their non-participatory actions causing you lack of productivity amongst your employees?
Then you have to adapt and take the next step actions. It is not worth the lack of productivity or loss of profitability. As a leader or entrepreneur, you have to take control of the situation.
Don’t think of it as “crossing the line” and jeopardizing
your relationship with them. Think of it like the Chameleon, adapting to the situation and the environment to survive.
Keeping your work environment productive, positive & profitable is your goal. Sometimes not easy…sometimes not pleasant…but always choosing to adapt so that positive results can be achieved!
Randy Gage is the prosperity expert and firmly believes in your mindset about adapting with a focused & positive drive. Or as the late great Vince Lombardi said…”Winning is not an option!”
As a Business Strategist, I work with entrepreneurs who want to adapt and acclimate successfully to the elements of their competition and want is going on out there.
Or as the Chinese General Sun-tsu wrote….”Keep your friends close…keep your enemies closer!”
So what is your competition doing more successfully than you?
