Who came up with that piece of advice?

Unless you're speaking at a super-model convention, don't picture the audience naked.

It'll do nothing to calm your and it could be a distraction you don't need.

And think about how many people you don't want to see naked vs. the ones you do!


Don't look to a real or even an imaginary audience for reassurance.

They're not there for you; you're there for them!

Pick out a few people in the room—real people wearing whatever they happen to be wearing—and challenge yourself to give them your best.

How will they think, feel, or act different after they've heard your message?

How will your talk impact their , stress, or money?

Imagine how good you'll feel when you light those people up.

Turn into service!
