Updated: Feb 14



You Were Born to Speak- Fear of Public Speaking
Lynn Kirkham- Public Speaking Coach

Hello, kindred spirits,


Can we share a moment and dive into a topic that tugs at our hearts?


Public speaking, the fluttering butterflies, the anxious dance of standing before a crowd. It's a feeling that resonates, isn't it? But here's something beautiful to ponder – Are we introverts? We're not mere observers on the fringes; we're the dreamers, the thinkers, the architects of magic when we find our rhythm.


Having spent years immersed in the world of public speaking, here's a little revelation that warms my heart – introverts? Oh, we make enchanting speakers. Isn't that a delightful surprise? Our strength lies in our sensitivity. We connect with others on a soulful level, weaving words from the heart in a way that truly touches. In a world that applauds the loud and outgoing, we introvert silently steal the spotlight.


Now, let's embrace that gentle giant in the room – the fear of public speaking.


It's okay to acknowledge it makes our hearts flutter a bit. With nearly half the population resonating with introverted vibes, there's a beautiful solidarity in this journey. The social pressure to perform can be overwhelming, but here's a whisper for your soul – it's perfectly alright to need a little more quiet time.

In those quiet moments of reflection, we find our strength. It's the quiet introspection that acts as our secret potion, the kind that has the power to change the world. Consider the legacy of introverts like Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Gandhi – their impact speaks volumes.


Here's a treasure I stumbled upon – Susan Cain. In her Ted Talk and book "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking," she shares her journey into the beauty and challenges of introversion, all wrapped in humor and insight. It's a gentle invitation worth accepting.


So, dear kindred spirits, let's wrap our arms around who we are. Let's understand our limits and create a space where the noise of the extroverted world doesn't drown our inner melody. It's time to cradle our introversion, speak from the heart, and illuminate the world with our unique brilliance.
