2. Stand up - straight and tall
3. Speak clearly and audibly
4. Make it - anything “your first time”
5. Follow the “As If” principle
6. Broadcast good news
7. Ask yourself: Am I being imitated, emulated, role modeled?
8. Build your confidence with positive self- talk.
9. Think enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic!
William James, Harvard Psychologist, suggests
that you feel the way you act. Therefore: If you are going to feel
enthusiastic, you must be enthusiastic. Enthusiasm is contagious!
And so is the lack of it! Fascinate your listeners with enthusiasm.
