          • Fear
            • The word “fear” refers to the biological process by which animals, including humans, secure the necessary energy to do a job, when the job to be done is one that really matters. (A job that really matters is one in which failure results in injury to either one’s physical and/or psychological self.)
          • Self Confidence
            • This word refers to the ability of an individual to predict with a rather high degree of probability, that what one ought to do, or what one is about to do, can be done with at least some degree of success or satisfaction.
          • Useful
            • A thing that is capable of satisfying certain needs is said to be useful.
          • Desirable
            • A thing that is needed to satisfy certain needs is said to be desirable.
          • Public Appearance
            • This means that a human being comes into some relationship with others in such a way that others can or will evaluate his or her behavior and/or personality.
        • Five Basic Ideas for Developing Self-Confidence
          1. All normal people have fear when faced with tasks that really matter.
          2. Fear is useful and desirable when understood, but wasteful and undesirable when misunderstood.
          3. All physical fear reactions have logical explanations.
          4. All public speaking situations are situations that really matter.
          5. All self-confidence comes from experience.
        • Practical Tips for Dealing with Fear
          1. Prepare thoroughly—Practice out loud, use a mirror, audio tape or video tape, practice with friends and get their reactions, time it, make workable note cards, practice with note cards, etc.
          2. Take a couple of deep breaths and, if possible, stretch and work off energy before you speak. Speak early in the period if you are generally nervous.
          3. Think of yourself as a “communicator of ideas” not a “speaker with a script.”
          4. Realize that everyone else feels very much as you do. Everyone is in the same boat. People are “with you.”
          5. With experience, know that your confidence and success will increase.
          6. Be at your best physically and mentally.
          7. Realize the opportunities outweigh the risks and everyone makes mistakes on their way to improvement.
