E165 - Speak With No Fear with Mike Acker

The Roller Coaster

In elementary school our English teacher, Mrs. Lamrock would have a public speaking section every year. We’d have to write and present our speech in front of the class. Yes, as much as I love to talk, I would still get butterflies as I walked to the front of the room when my name was called. Some kids having full-blown panic attacks when their names were called. At the time, it seemed pointless and we thought it was some weird form of torture. But as an adult, those skills have proven to be invaluable. So why do we get nervous at the thought of speaking in front of a group? Joining me today is Mike Acker, author of Speak With No Fear to share how you can go from nervous, nauseated with sweaty palms to being a speaker with energy, excitement and passion.

158: No Fear Speaking- Secrets and Strategies to be an Impact Speaker with Mike Acker

No Rain... No Rainbows

Do you feel sick in your stomach whenever you speak before an audience? Many of us do, and sometimes when that happens we think that we are not worthy of this privilege. However, it is good to remember that there are two types of speakers on a stage: those who were born speakers and those who were made for speaking.  Mike Acker is one of today’s legendary speakers. He has been speaking for over 20 years, and has affected a myriad of individuals, companies, and institutions. With his speaking prowess, nobody would think Mike has speech impediment. His fear of speaking was so intense he suffered from psychosomatic fever when he spoke to an audience. In this episode, Ted and Mike share how their journey was like before they were able to develop full confidence as public speakers. From their stories you will learn how to overcome the paralyzing effect of fear, articulate your message better, and speak your real voice. Mike also shares how the weights we often carry affect how we show up on stage, and where to place those weights so that they serve us rather than weigh us down. As you prepare for your next speaking engagement, listen to these 3 simple tricks you can do to reduce pressure and give yourself an advantage on stage.   Connect with Ted:  Website Facebook  Twitter Instagram LinkedIn YouTube

'Wealth is really getting ahold of the values that you have to prioritize your life.  If you value being financially wealthy, and you've prioritized that, then that's wealth for you, but wealth is something different for everyone.  Wealth for me is laughing a lot, travelling, and having experiences.  It's about having an adventurous life.  But when we see someone living by a different standard of wealth than our own, we experience one of two emotions, pride or pity.  Don't compare yourself.  Wealth is you achieving the values that you have lived.' ~ Mike Acker Learn more about Mike HERE.
