Timidity was my stock-in-trade when I was young. You just cannot imagine how I used to behave! Do you know how scared a rat would be if it suddenly found itself within the reach of a cat? That was how scared I used to be each time I was called upon to address a large audience. I would sweet from head to toes; and this would go on until the D-day had come and gone.
Whenever I organized an occasion, I would let my friend speak for me.
Fortunately, things changed. I overcame my timidity and became confident of myself. Today, I can speak anywhere in the world no matter how large the audience may be.
You can do same if you take time and train yourself in the art of Public speaking. From experience, a mastery of your subject will give you confidence to speak anywhere to anyone.
My advice is don’t be afraid to speak in public. Rather, seek occasions to do so. You will become used to it.
