    Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking with Stoic Psychology

    Introvert Emergency Kit
     
    Click here if you're ready to become a less anxious, more charismatic public speaker.

    When it comes to public speaking, what exactly are you afraid of? 
    Most people I talk to don’t explore their fears at all – and this makes them worse. 
    The thought of public speaking brings up such uncomfortable feelings that they try to ignore them or stuff them down – which is why they continue to suffer from speaking anxiety, one of the most common fears in the world. 
    How is an amorphous ‘fear of fear’ holding you back and keeping you quiet?  
    I’m Sarah Mikutel, your communication and mindset coach. By the end of this episode, you will know:
    what you’re really afraid of when you say you don’t like public speaking – no more amorphous clouds of discomfort,how anxiety manifests in our mind and body and why not managing it is so harmful,the beliefs underlying the four different flavors of public speaking anxiety, and Stoic practices you can do to let go of anxiety so you can more eloquently express your thoughts, feelings, and ideas.So no more holding in what you want to say and then internally screaming when someone else voices what you’d been thinking. It’s time to start feeling more calm and confident when you speak. 
    Let’s dive in.

Best voice

Although this review won’t rocket her to fame, I have to say, she has the best voice in podcasting. Like honey to the ears.

Motivating and Inspiring

I binged a number of episodes and felt motivated and inspired by the information, yes, but more so by the way Sarah communicates with a warmth and intimacy that made me feel like she was holding my hand across a table saying it’s going to be fine I’ll help you through this, no worries. So glad I can add her tools to my podcasting toolbox.
