If one is not strong and happy with his or her own self, then one is not entitled to strong relationships with others. The periods that I tussle with these things are the periods that I lose confidence in myself or wander too far from the Almighty God. When I identify the signs, I devote time for praying and reading The Bible. When I feel unhappy, I push myself back to learning either physically or mentally through workout practices.In my years of study, I have gained experience to communicating to masses which in turn have boosted my confidence and decreased my anxieties. With years of practicing, talking to big crowds has been a vital rule to successful and effective public speaking (Braxton, Milem & Sullivan, 2000). I have learnt to calm myself while talking to a crowd of people through concentrating on the message and not on the channel through which the message is channeled. I tend to relax myself by breathing slowly and taking a few seconds to catch up with my anxiety. The technique of visualizing gives a speech boost; self-assurance and I eventually talk in a more confident manner.In my current academic years, I have learnt to familiarize myself with the audience by greeting and chatting with them. Trying to become familiar with the audience has made it easier for me to be more relaxed and comfortable while addressing them. The element of knowing my material and familiarizing with the presentation makes it easier and eases the nervousness (Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005).At place of work, I strain to do the best I can. My job description entails tallying safety and customer assessment improvements to the merchandise while producing more returns and yield for the organization.
