You will need to apply hours of labor to become a public speaking star. As you work at a job you realize that if you don't put forth your best efforts likely the job tasks will fail. You will need to apply your job skills to writing the task, i.e. act like you are working. This will help you to create confidence, which is very important while giving a speech on stage. Therefore, build you confidence by putting forth your best efforts.
The labor of becoming a public speaking star includes knowing what it is you want from the speech. This is the first step that will guide you through the rest of the process easier. If you know what you want, you will go for it.
To learn what it is you are seeking to come from your speech, ask you what you want from the speech? How do you want to deliver the speech? After you decide what you want from the speech you should immediately start the process of writing the speech. Gathering information and putting it off could cause a loss.
Most likely you already know what topic you are to write. It is time to use this topic entirety to bring a complete informative story together. The story should always have a clear start, center and finish.
The logic of knowing what you want before you start will help guide you through the process smoothly. Now, you should setup a timeframe in which you can labor to finish the speech. You will also need to work sufficiently and work in an area where no interruptions will take you away from the speech writing process. Try to shut off your phone and let friends and family know at what time you will be writing the speech, so they will respect your efforts.
At the start, write on paper brief outlines of the speech you will deliver. Draw up an outline that starts the speech. You can use all thoughts gathered to add a center and then work toward the finish. If you feel aggravated, relax for a moment and then continue the process. You can write the outline of the speech as you consider the timeframe it will take to finish the speech. This will help you to get timing in place.
Once you have written the speech you should practice giving the speech out loud while you time yourself. This will help you to prepare.
It is good to skip around in the speech as you say it out loud so that you can see more into the way the speech is delivered. Of course you want to practice giving the entire speech at some point, yet start it off by skipping around. If you notice any areas in the speech that may need changing, take notes right away. This will help you to remember the areas that you may want to change.
During the practice and writing you can observe the speech to see if any changes are needed and make them accordingly. If you are reading you speech, be sure to note keywords. These keywords are what will bring out the speech's overall topic.
If you are stressing the day of the speech and it is making you nervous, practice giving the speech with friends or family prior to the day of the speech. Remember the more you practice the better the chance you will have of giving a public speech that will make you a star. Also, remember that it is common to experience nervousness on stage, therefore accept your human nature and use it to your advantage
