You know that delivering a presentation on the complex issue that arose in your last transaction will massively raise your profile and showcase your value.
And yet you avoid doing it.
It isn’t because you don’t know how.
It’s because you have Imposter Syndrome, which means every fibre of your being is telling you that if you can’t do it perfectly, then you shouldn’t do it at all.
But those fibres are wrong!
If you want to get really good at public speaking, not only do you have to do it imperfectly, you have to be willing to fall short of your own expectations.
In other words, you have to fail.
And fail again.
And then fail again, only better.
This is how you learn to speak in public with confidence and ease.
Think of the toddler who is learning to walk. All that getting up and falling flat on your face; and getting up again and falling down again – only this time doing it better than the time before.
It’s essentially the same thing.
The only difference is that a toddler doesn’t avoid trying to walk because they are worried they won’t do it perfectly. A toddler is willing to fail. And because of that, a whole new world of opportunity opens up for them.
A new world of opportunity is out there, ready to open up for you too.
