If you are the last person in the world who would ever volunteer for a public-speaking opportunity, think about it: you’re the very person who would benefit the most from the chance! When you hear that voice inside your head saying “No way,” ask yourself, “Why am I saying no way?” You’re uncomfortable being in front of a group because you don’t have a lot of experience with it. But the catch-22 is that the only way to get used to public speaking is to to do it over and over again; but the first few experiences are likely to be so uncomfortable that you will want to avoid it more and more each time. The only way to ever get better is to face the fear and do it anyway.
