There are tons of people out there who want to get better at public speaking and improve their presentation skills but they’re not exactly sure how to do it.
In this video, I’m going to show you how to become a better speaking a short amount of time.
Now you probably know that you should be really good at public speaking but you’re also wondering what you should be doing. You see all these other speakers who are great on stage and you’re wondering how they got that way.
Is it natural talent? Was it learned? How did they get to be good?
Maybe your speaking isn’t horrible, but you just know that you can make it better and you want to make it better really fast.
Because I do mind reading shows, I’ve mastered the ability to get in front of a group and capture their attention, keep it, and create a powerful presentation. So when I started doing motivational talks, I combined what I did in my mind reading shows and it naturally got a great response.
The thing is…
How do you do it?
So here’s what you do…
First, you have to realize that if you want to get good at public speaking then it’s not a matter of time, it’s not a matter of how long it’s going to take, it’s just a matter of the intensity of your training.
If you’re speaking on stage twice a day then you can guarantee that you’re going to get better than someone who speaks only twice a year. And you’re going to get really good, really fast.
It’s cool and all to read books and get information about speaking but the only way you’re going to get good is to actually do it.
So you have to figure out how you’re going to practice.
I can’t stress this enough…the only way you’re going to get better at speaking is to practice and train.
Michael Jordan was good at basketball because he trained nonstop. Tiger Woods got good at golf because he trained nonstop. Michael Jackson was one of the best performers because he trained nonstop.
If you want to get really good at speaking, you have to know how to practice.
Most people wait until they get in front of an audience to practice. They read some stuff in a book about public speaking, maybe they watched some youtube videos, and then when they get in front of the audience, they forget everything they read in the book, everything they saw in the video, and they still don’t do nearly as good as they thought.
The reason is because they didn’t train themselves.
A simple way you can train yourself is to record yourself speaking in your room.
Or if you have a business, you can record youtube videos.
As you’re recording yourself, you want to pick a specific thing you want to get good at. So lets say you want to practice ‘story telling.’ Well in your practice session, focus only on telling your story and do it over and over and over and over.
You should do it so much that you don’t need to think about it anymore.
And each time you practice, you pick a specific thing you want to get better at.
So lets say you want to get better at framing, and setting your audience up to hear your information before you actually reveal it to them.
So now you record yourself by saying things like, “Look, what I’m about to show you is something that took me 100 years to learn. It will change your life as it did mine. I was once homeless and now I have a trillion dollars in my bank account. What you’re about to learn is the most important thing of your life.”
And you just keep practicing your framing technique.
All public speaking is a learned skill.
And I know that people want the magic pill for learning things really fast but the only way is to do it more than others.
If Michael Jordan only practiced for one hour a day then he wouldn’t have been nearly as good. But since he practiced all day, every day, he became the best.
If you just read a book then don’t practice, you’re not going to get better. But if you do practice, and you practice every single day, nonstop, and you’re just always doing it…then you’re going to naturally get better.
That’s how you learn public speaking really fast. It’s all a matter of intensity.
