Be authentic. Be transparent. Be real. Wherever you’re speaking, you know this is what your listener is craving. Everybody’s fed up with deceit and phoniness. They want to hear the truth, and they want to believe what you’re saying.
On the surface, this seems simple enough. Like you just leave out any lies – right? Actually, there’s more to it that. When you want to thoroughly communicate your truth to an audience, there’s one main thing you need to remember: be yourself.
Be The Real You
People crave connection. When they listen to you, they want to feel like you’re talking directly to them. They want to feel like you know them. And the only way they’re going to feel like that is if you come across as the real you. Like what you see is what you get.
We’ve all heard people proclaiming their own authenticity, but we feel like we really have no idea who they are. So it’s not about telling people how authentic you are. It’s about showing them.
And it’s not about disclosing all your personal, private information. In fact, that can backfire on your purpose to engage people. Because unless you’re performing a one-woman show, nobody’s that interested in you. Hope that doesn’t burst your bubble, but it’s true.
They came to hear the information you have to offer. But they want to hear it from somebody they feel like they know. Someone they can trust. Somebody real.
The Secret: Relax
The best way to let them see the authentic you is to relax when you’re speaking. Whether you’re talking from the stage, speaking on a teleseminar, or presenting to your MasterMind group, people will connect with your message when you’re relaxed in your delivery. Being relaxed is what allows you to use your own language, to be who you really are everyday. And that’s what your audience wants.
So do what you need to do to help yourself relax when you’re speaking. Use a rapid-change tool like EFT tapping to eliminate whatever has you tense. And then go be your authentic self for your audience. You’ll be amazed at how they’ll connect with you and your message.
Now you know the secret to truly being authentic when you’re speaking in public. When you want to thoroughly communicate your truth to an audience, any audience, the one thing you must do is to completely be yourself.
