Focus on “what is” instead of “What if”!
When you panic before a presentation, here is what might happen:
You start to anticipate outcomes that have not yet happened.
Fear transforms you into a Fiction Writer:
« …what will happen if I get a question from the CEO?
….What will happen if my computer crashes?
...what if I forgot what I want to say?"
It is a spiral down from this point on and « Armageddon » is playing in your mind.
Seneca said: “Our fears are more numerous than our dangers, and we suffer more in our imagination than in reality. »
When you catch yourself having the “What if” thoughts, bring your mind back to the present moment by describing “What is”.
What you see in the meeting room or on your screen (There are 6 metallic chairs and an oval wooden table, I see 5 icons and my word document software s open...)
What your body sensations feel like (my shoes are comfortable, I have a cool draft in my neck…),
What you smell (warm coffee).
To Speak with confidence, ditch the “WHAT IF” triggering FEAR and re-focus on the “WHAT IS” bringing you back in the present moment.
