5 Effective Ways to Control Nerves for Motivational Speakers

by Bradley Underwood

One of the biggest enemies of motivational speakers is their own nerves. It is commonly a big problem for anyone who regularly faces an audience as part of their job. How can you fight it? Here are five effective ways to put your nerves under control.

1. Find a calming habit that you can practice before going on stage:

The work of Motivational Speakers can induce a cycle of stress and nervousness. This can cause a repetition of emotional and mental turbulence that can worsen progressively. Hence, it is important that you also form a calming habit that can condition your mind every time you are about to battle your nerves. Take it as a strategy to preempt stress before it disturbs you.

A calming habit can be anything that makes you feel good before starting your speech. For many speakers, practicing a simple breathing exercise for a minute is already enough while for some, listening to music is more effective. Your habit really depends on your personality and preference, so you have to understand your own emotions.

2. Bring something that makes you happy every time you work:

While a calming habit is undoubtedly effective, tangible things may sometimes be more effective. This is especially true for people who believe in charms or have special items with sentimental value. Some people simply have a thing for fancy things, such as stuffed toys, jewelries, toys, and books. It is also undeniable that some people simply need foods to cheer them up. Try eating a bar of chocolate before going on stage perhaps.

We also suggest that you look back to your childhood and think about the things that used to make you feel good. Psychologists believe that things with emotional value from your childhood are more effective in triggering positive emotions. Never mind if it seems ridiculous. What’s important is that it gets the job done.

3. Have something that can help you release tension and stress:

While the previous tip refers to something that you do not necessarily have to use, this tip refers to something that you have to actively use to work. The best example of this is a stress ball that you can play in your hands to help you release the tension building up inside you. Nevertheless, bringing this on stage is not a good idea unless you deliver your speech from behind a podium.

Some people hold a hanky on one hand while the other holds the microphone while some people hold a laser pen just to have something that they can fiddle with clandestinely. Whatever it is, it should be something discrete from the audience’s view.

4. Never memorize your speech verbatim:

This is a big mistake that many novice motivational speakers commit. They think that memorizing their speech word by word will help them avoid mistakes. The opposite is actually true.

Memorizing a speech verbatim only worsens tension because the chance of committing a mistake also increases. You have more lines to forget when you know your speech down to the last exclamation point. Knowing that you have memorized your speech also unnecessarily sets the bar higher because a simple mistake already becomes obvious from your standpoint, regardless if the audience do not really know that you have committed one (unless they have a detailed copy of your speech, which is rarely done when compared to giving outlines).

Instead of memorizing your speech verbatim, memorize its core message—memorize it by heart so that you know how to continue regardless if you miss an entire paragraph.

5. Look in the eyes of your audience:

As opposed to the common belief of novice motivational speakers that looking in the audience’s eyes only worsens nervousness, doing it actually reinforces confidence because you get to receive non-verbal approval from the audience. You instantly know when your audience understand what you are saying and at the same time, you are able to respond appropriately when your audience’s stares imply confusion and disagreement.

Looking in the eyes of your audience can be really intimidating at first. However, this is very important for you to make a connection and truly bridge your message. Not looking in your audience’s eyes may seem comfortable at first, but the lack of connection may eventually make your feel alone and misunderstood, both of which can rob you off your self-esteem.

If eye contact is uncomfortable for you at first, practice it in front of a mirror while rehearsing your speech or better yet, talk with a lot of people to develop your interpersonal communication skills.

 

Different Brands of Golf Balls

by Andre Hanson

A golf ball is a special ball designed to be used in the game of golf since the 14th century. Ever since that time, a lot of manufacturers have successfully designed different types of golf balls.

Golf Ball

Most of the professional golfers know that finding the right ball can change their game and can take their game into a new level. It is important that one should know the different brands and the basic component or how the balls were made to make sure that the right one is picked.

This article will cover some golf ball brands that have been produced over the years by different companies. While numerous companies have already closed or shut down their businesses, some are still operational up to today.

Listed below are some of the known brands and are widely used by some of the professional golfers:
Callaway

Callaway BallGolf balls from this company are among the most used by professional golfers. It is because of their optimized aerodynamics. This allows the ball to go for specific miles per hour and over the swing speeds of a specific golfer.

Nike

It is the brand used by one of the most famous golfers, Tiger Woods. Right now, the company is working on a new ball that is supposed to beat the sales of a competitor brand known as Titleist. The ball that they are trying to perfect will most likely have a small core. By trying to make the core more lightweight, the stuff surrounding the core will become heavier. This can support better distance and stability.

Srixon

They are widely known to have produced the Srixon Tour Yellow Golf Balls. Yellow is considered to be the most visible out of the many colors in a visual scale. Many psychologists have also associated green with stress relief and calming effects. There are studies that show that Srixon mixed the two colors (green and yellow) based upon the findings of psychologists. This is done to easily tap into the minds of players while also increasing the benefits provided by playing the sport using a good and high quality ball.

Titleist

Titleist BallMost people that have used this brand have mentioned that it is the best ball they have played with. Most have mentioned that it is due to the consistent flight the golf balls are designed to have. While researching as to why they are the number one company as of this year, it was detected that they have perfected one of the most important factors in playing golf. This is having full control of the ball on the green. The balls are built to last but feel so soft when you hit them. Most golfers have mentioned in their blogs that it is the best ball brand to date and their favorite!

Volvik

They are known to produce high-quality balls that are available in different colors such as orange, pink, green and yellow. One of the many things that they have achieved is combine a solid inner core which is enclosed in a soft casing. This case offers optimal spin separation ability while also optimizing the balance between control and distance. This combination have attracted a lot of golfers to try the products out.

Wilson

Wilson has been at the forefront of golf innovation for more than 80 years. They are very proud of their Wilson Staff golf balls claiming that it is the softest ball in the market at present while also having a great distance.

Wilson BallThese are some of the most known golf ball brands that are currently out in the market. As most people know, the golf ball is the sole equipment used by a player in each hole. Because of this, you need to buy one which meets the standards of professional golfers. There are a lot of good brands out there and all a golfer has to do is to at least try them so he can pick the best choice.

The golf ball market is a tough and competitive arena. For every manufacturer, it’s the performance of each golf ball they produce that is leading their way to success.

“I just recently moved to Orange County, I’m originally from Alabama. I really love dancing particularly tango. Back in Alabama, I would go to the local dance studio to practice and talk to other dancers. I was deeply desperate to find a nice studio near my apartment but I didn’t have much time to walk around. So I decided to search on the internet instead and stumbled upon this site. Through tangoorange.org I was able to find the dance studio and dance school most suited for me. Aside from that, it’s just a 10-minute walk from my place. Thanks for the help!”

“I recently quit my job as a nurse. The working condition in the hospital is really not for me. Since I was 12, I’ve been joining dance competitions. I won here and there but I stopped pursuing dancing when I reached college. But I just keep coming back to my first love.  After quitting my job in the hospital, I sought to find work as a dance instructor. But I really had a hard time. But through tangoorange.org I was able to find a dance studio that was looking for a dance instructor. Now, I am happily teaching others to appreciate dancing. “
