    u start speaking in front of mirror than u start speaking in front of family members then in front of friends than go on stage when no one is there in the hall and speak whatever u like, this will give you confidence and help you out to overcome your stage fear.

    First of all speak in front of mirror and gain confidence of urself.
    At the stage don't think that what others give what comments,, just make eye contact with every one and give ur performance with full confidence..

    stage fear is not a big problem to overcome........firstly you need to increase your level of confidence......have confidence in whatever you say.......
    gain confidence by reciting your lines in front of a mirror......and on the stage just forget about all the negativity and fear of failure.....think that you are talking to yourself or your friends and no one is around.....

    Visualize yourself speaking
    Realize people want u to succeed

    hey G.MADHURI

    its somewhat easy
    as yopu have told that you are a good speaker.
    if you want to overcome stage fear
    1 you need to practise hard
    2 practise infront of mirror
    3 interact with new people
    4 practise in front of your family members
    5 practise in front of your friends
    the most important is practising and interacting

    there is no therapy made to overcome this fear the only way is to be self confident
    to prepare yourself and if u have fear of people then look straight or try to look at person whom u feel makes u feel supportive i woukd further like to suggest u to open the horizons of ur mind and tell it i am best and what i will speak will be best and u will surely be able to speak as u want

    Stage fright is natural. when you stand in front of a huge crowd with the responsibility of addressing them your adrenaline pumps up and you start getting butterflies in your stomach means you become nervous.
    To overcome this fear you should start frm a smaller level.
    Try to speak in front of your friends group first den jump on to second level Try to speak in front of the class slowly and steadily you will gain confidence to speak in front of the large crowd.

    look friend u need to have a good knowledge on matter you are going to perform on the stage! you know perfection has no fears... hence you need to be good in what you are going to do it, on stage. and the other thing is that if you are like a singer, dancer like that, then u can practice in front of mirror, or practice doing in a empty auditorium before performing anything in front of audience...! if u are a public speaker then i will recommend u to read a very good book on public speaking and that book is dale Carnegie's "the art of public speaking". in this book dale Carnegie have covered many important issues of speaking including body language, voice charm, pause and power, force used in speaking etc...
    hope my guidance may prove to be useful to you..

    each a every person has stage fear. it's not only for u but also for everyone. first when u come to stage just hold ur breath say to urself that the whole audience is full fools .in that way u can gain confidence .then when speaking look every where &make few eye contact as possible .don't look at front batch ,try to look at last batch. all the best.

    Fear is False Evidence Accepted as Real... so do not fear from now on wards in your life... The best way to overcome fear is to face it just try to face it again and again and you will find that you do not have any fear after some days....This is my experience and not others so i can surely tell you something about this and hope you will be really benefited from this.

    the first thing you need to do is "Master your material".i.e prepare a good notes on the topic on which you are going to speak,prepare thoroughly.Rehearsal can help you in presenting your speech in a perfect way.While you are presenting concentrate on your message but not on the medium.
    Gain experiance which can slowly reduce your fear.
    "practice makes man perfect"
    Go Ahead with confidence.
    All the best.

    Re: How can I overcome my stage fear?

    Dear Madhuri

    You feel its fear but I would like to suggest that have gutts and just take initiative. For once in a life time your heart beat will increase and legs will shake, voice will fumble but' but have to do it. Don't bother what people will say, just domit for yourself. And I tell you these are not just words I have done it on myself during my college time.

    I tell you the story: There was a song competetion in my college and lot of student were participating. I also registered my name. After that there was an audition. Lot of my classmates sang well and when my turn came I thought I am not as good as my friend. So Idecided to quit. But sitting on chair I thought "Bakre ki maa kab tak kher maneyige". I concentrated my energy and waled on the stage for singing. I started and finished. During my singing I don't what happened but when I was coming back to my seat lot of students clapped and suggested few things like you were too fast, microphone was too near to my mouth, good effort, you have the guts to go on stage etc.. I knew I didn't sang good but took the positive feedback and my fear was gone. Its not me and you everybody fears stage. So a person who tries gets and appreciation.

    Learnt from those feedback I started addressing small people of group in my job and then presentations etc..

    I would like to suggest that just go and speak forget about everything

    Thanks
    Ravi Datt

    Re: How can I overcome my stage fear?

    madhuri you also have to ensure that first u should be clear enough with the message u want to give to the audience,,,,

    then start pronouncing it as loudly as you can but at slow speed... SLOW SPEED, CLEAR PRONUNCIATION, LOUD VOICE...

    the purpose of standing in front of mirror is to notice your body language which i found missing in the above posts by the members....

    Improve body language be relaxed.... if you are in college give maximum number of presentations & ask friends to criticize as much as they can.. because then u may ur lacuna's & Loop holes.... 10 Friends 10 Lacuna's... TAKE IT IN POSITIVE MANNER...

    practice group discussions.......... but always with healthy competition... & DO NOT EVER FRUSTRATE OR DEMOTIVATE... STAGE FEAR WILL NOT GO AWAY IN FEW DAYS IT WILL GO GRADUALLY... SO KEEP PATIENCE & PRACTICE MORE>>

    Warm Regards
    Hada

    hi,
    to remove your stage fear you have to first build up your confidence level to face this. what you have to do is improve your personality, which is only in your hands. make yourself feel proud while you speak in front of others, focus on the words and the language which you are using. make sure you make no awful mistakes in your conversation. talk friendly to the people and with your friends, gain the confidence level from there and also practice in front of the mirror, how to carry yourself in front of the others. All these things will make you boost up and help to gain your confidence level to remove your stage fear.

    All the Best

    hi..there is only one way through which you can over come your stage fear and that is practice ,the more number of times you would stand on the stage and speak the more relaxed you will get next time ,also while going on to the stage always thing what the others feel does not matter at all and speak what you want to speak there ,also you can make use of your friends and ask them to sit in the auditorium like the crowd and try to make an speech in front of them and ask them to make all non sense and practice in that environment that will really help you and also try to not look in the eyes of an person directly during an stage speech ,always try to cover all the persons directly during an stage speech

    Practice makes things perfect. Practice many times before your friends, ask for suggestions and modify your speech.
    Be slow and steady in your speech. Keep in mind that you are the master of your words, so care should be taken for each and every word.
    Assume that the people in front of you, have v.little knowledge about the subject you are speaking.
    Have eye-contact, make gestures. maintain rise and fall in your tone. pronoun the word correctly.

    Madhuri Ji while surfing on the net i came to know that there aare few websites which are providing Mock sessions of interview.. they ask you questions & stop for a while for which you can give your answer as a practice...

    but unfortunately i couldn't reach to the websites...

    you can also search while i also doing the same.... & get back to the thread again with some more better results

    Re: How can I overcome my stage fear?

    Hi Friend:

    Stage fear is not an individual problem. Many of the people with talent are facing the same problem, at the time when they need to perform like interview, group discussion etc. Even I was being also a victim for that. Now I have been reducing stage fear problem through practice. So my suggestions are my experiences. Just try to do the following things,
    • Leadership is the best choice for avoiding stage fear. So first of all you try to lead and control your classmates.
    • Try to communicate with your teachers and with people have good knowledge about great things.
    • Try to do your needs yourself like filling application forms, applying for any tests, searching jobs, taking decision for higher graduation etc. If any doubts are arising during this time, just search over internet and come to the final decision.
    • Try to make call with people they are keeping high position in different fields. Then try to talk with them face to face.
    Through the above steps your stage fear problem definitely will reduce.

    All the best

    Try to communicate with outside people is very effective solution.
    Not every one , who is in your class at last bench,who is your neighbour you never talk before.And lastly if you are on the stage then you feel like a cool person who has knowledge more than the other people in the hall.

    Re: How can I overcome my stage fear?

    Many students face problem when it comes talking to a crowd on the stage...u can overcome this. Each and everyone who steps on stage for first time has a fear that is quiet natural...first of all have confidence in what u say... dont worry about what other will think about you if you dont do it well..because nobody is perfect in this world....keep this is in mind. My suggestion to overcome is start off as early as possible... if u r a 12th student its better u voluntarily do seminars in class.. later when u join some degree college it will be easy task for u...if not in 12th at least in degree... if u dont and u r thinking of joining some company...that will b a difficult task for u.. so start early Good luck

    gain confidence by reciting your lines in front of a mirror......and on the stage just forget about all the negativity and fear of failure.....think that you are talking to yourself or your friends and no one is around..... This will help you overcome your fear and also talk to yourself when u r alone

    Re: How can I overcome my stage fear?

    Dear Madhuri, Problem of fear can only be tackle with confidence and confidence will only come from knowledge. And knowledge come only from thorough reading, study and interacting. Your solid point can boost your confidence while speaking before anybody.Even if u r not a good speaker people will listen carefully your valid points. I know how to speak but what I face problem is I do not know what to speak.I also agree that sometimes it may also happen when u have good points to speak but u r not able to deliver perfectly. It can be overcome gradually practice, interacting and knowledge. Remember the key point here is ur knowledge not practice or interaction. Because your knowledge u can not raise ur points which is primary.
    Good luck.

    Well nice ques. obviously its very simple. Whatever is your topic, be prepared well and practice once or twice before your home mirror. i hope this method will reduce ur fear and improve your confidence level.
    Keep track of tour body language and gesture which will grasp the audience to your side.
    Give lecture and seminars more as volunteer. Then you will really get out of it. This is my experience.

    Hi!! Fear comes from Negative thoughts..whenever you think NEGATIVE before any performance in stage or interview that you are not prepared no one can stop you for scaring so the 1st step is prepare your subject well and focus on getting through the first five minutes,Breathe! Fear is a bodily reflex and one that you can overcome,before your presentation or performance take slow and deep breadth & sit quietly & think only POSITIVE about yourself & your performance, imagine that you WON & people praise you so much and feels so GLAD..FEELS POSITIVITY VERY DEPTHLY..You automatically feel good & confident..Remember No one can criticize you without your permission means You are your own worst critic and in any stage performance don't see the audience,always see the upper side and perform your BEST..Trust me NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE..JUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF...All the Best & GOD BLESS U....Arpita Chatterjee..
