Get Psyched: Mindset Secrets of Successful Speakers

Have you wondered why some people can get in front of an audience and have the time of their lives… while you suffer anxiety, self-doubt and a crushing lack of confidence?

Listen up, my friend:

There’s no mystery to the “secret sauce” that allows some speakers to completely enjoy themselves on stage, connect with the audience, and leave a lasting impression.

But it’s not something you can see or touch. It’s something that happens on the inside, a mental approach that – when you adopt it – changes everything.

Do you ever imagine what it would be like to face an audience with confidence and joy?

Do you fantasize about how awesome it would be to take the stage and speak with ease?

Do you wish you could have the kind of connection with an audience where you give them your energy and they give it back to you?

Do you envision how powerful your message could be to those who need and want it, if you could just get up there and DO it?

Unfortunately, your reality is more like this:

You never feel fully prepared to speak.

Your mind swirls with all the things that could go wrong once you get on stage.

You fear that you’ll be boring, dry, monotonous, and make no impact whatsoever on your audience.

You lack confidence in your abilities and feel certain that you’ll never be able to engage an audience.

You’re positive that the audience can see how nervous and anxious you are – which makes you more nervous and anxious.

Because of all these negative thoughts and beliefs, you avoid speaking, avoid offering your unique gifts, story, perspective and transformational message to the world, and stay hidden out of fear and self-doubt.

Here’s the good news:

It’s all in your head!

How do I know this? Because I used to let those negative thoughts overwhelm me, too.

I’m Lisa Braithwaite, Public Speaking Coach and Trainer. When I started speaking in high school classrooms more than 20 years ago, in my first community outreach position with a nonprofit, I was terrified.

Teenagers, if you’ve never given a presentation to them… well, let’s just say that they’re a tough audience.

I had all the same doubts that you have…

I wasn’t going to be able to keep their attention.

I was going to mess up and embarrass myself, and they were going to laugh at me.

Or worse than laughing at me, they were going to be mean and rude to me!

But I didn’t have a choice. I couldn’t say no. This was a part of my job, so I jumped in with both feet and I never looked back.

Throughout the years I spent giving presentations in high school and middle school classrooms, my content didn’t change much. My delivery didn’t change much. My personality and style didn’t change at all! I’m still very much the same person I was back then, and I still deliver the same energy and the same passion to my audiences now, although I speak on different topics.

Why did I stop being terrified? What changed?

My attitude. My thoughts. My beliefs.

My mindset.

And I’ll teach you how to change yours in my free teleseminar:
