a nervous feeling about having to speak or perform in front of an audience
Do you ever get stage fright? I do. I have to do a presentation tomorrow. I get so nervous I can't speak, and I start to sweat.
regularly act or behave in a certain way
Of course I do! I get so nervous that my voice cracks and I tend to talk so fast. I think everyone gets stage fright! BUT, I will share with you some tips to help you!
give something to help achieve something
Don't focus on yourself or your fear! Think about the purpose of your presentation: to contribute something of value or inform your audience.
in a voice that can be heard
Practice, practice, practice! Prepare your material in advance so you know it and read it aloud to hear your voice.
thinking positively to remove doubts or fears
Don't think about what might go wrong.Instead, focus your attention on positive, reassuring thoughts.
make a physical or mental effort
Give up trying to be perfect and know that it is OK to make mistakes. Be natural, be yourself! Exert your ability.
