The best way to overcome some kind of confidence-related issue is to start slowly and gradually. With time we get used to the level & increase it if possible.
One very simple approach that worked for me is to start gradually. Many things initially seem hard but when we start doing them over and over they become a routine and we get more comfortable with doing them. I remember when I had my first public appearance. I would get very stressed.
One time I remember, I got on a stage where I had to talk about myself and my business and people couldn’t hear what I was saying, my tone of voice was down, I was shaking and my heart was pounding. It was embarrassing for sure. At some point I decided to join a meetup group where people like me were practicing public speaking.
After a few weeks, I got more and more confident and gradually the stress related to public speaking started to disappear. The same was when I used to compete in martial arts. First fights were very stressful, after some time I got more and more confident and later it was just “another day in the office”.
The best way to overcome some kind of confidence-related issue is to start slowly and gradually. With time we get used to the level and we can increase it if possible.
With a public speaking example, it could be something like starting with a tiny group of friends or something. Later we can do a meetup or ToastMasters group a few times and after that we can think about bigger audiences.
