Post from Transformation Tom- Stop Comparing Yourself to Great Orators- Chapter “From Fear to Success: A Practical Public-speaking Guide” from the section “The Anxiety”


I can’t speak like that! You see someone on TV or go to a presentation and see someone who can speak circles around you. You might say I will never be like him or her, so why try?
