Dear Angel,I’m afraid of speaking in-front of people…
I’m so afraid of speaking in-front of people. What can I do to overcome this fear, because would want to become a TV news anchor when I grow up?
It is very good that you already know what you want to become when you grow up.
As for being afraid, it’s normal to be anxiousfearful in-front of crowds, many people are. But with good preparation of what you want to speak about, you’ll be okay.
Go over your preparation several times, practice in-front of a mirror,in-front of your familya group of friends. Listen to their encouragementheed their good advice.
Also, watch your favorite speakerssee how they do it. Learn from themfrom good books too. Most importantly, believe in yourselfsay positive things to yourself,think positive things about yourself too. This will go a long way in boosting your confidence withinwithout.
And finally, remember God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, lovea sound mind. And guess what else? You can do all things through Christ who gives you the abilitystrength.
Cheers, young lady!
