Any guide to success in an endeavor will tell you that there is no magic formula to success. But in a lot of fields of endeavor, there seem to be insider secrets. And taking on the challenge of becoming a truly great public speaker is a noble ambition. But if you could learn the insider secret that makes the difference between good public speakers and great ones, that would help you make that transition.
There is actually one great secret to what makes speakers who really shine in front of a group so great. But it is not magic or something you can take as a pill, and an hour later you are ready to stand up and dazzle the crowd. It is a very simple process that is something you already know a lot about. It is just simple, old-fashioned hard work and preparation.
The further in advance you can start getting ready for a presentation, the better your public speaking will be. You know that feeling of terror that you experience when you address a crowd? Well, you may not be able to pinpoint why that feeling comes upon you. But many times it comes up because you are not completely prepared, and you do not know what to do or how it will go because the material is not as well-developed as it should be.
