Visualization for presenters
Which reminded me to again discuss the benefits of using the Law of Attraction and visualization for your presentations. You definitely get better results when you do one or more of the following:
1. Visualize your meeting room. Visualize your audience. Now visualize, with strong positive emotions, your audience hanging on your every word and paying attention to your presentation. What does the room smell like? What is the temperature? How is the lighting? Then also visualize a successful presentation - depending on your definition of a successful presentation. If it is a business presentation, you can visualize closing the deal. If it is a wedding speech, you can visualize everyone laughing at your jokes. For maximum benefit, visualize every morning and evening in the days leading up to your presentation.
2. Write out affirmations by hand. Affirmations such as "I see the crowd going wild". "Everyone came up to me afterwards and shook my hand".
3. Put up pictures of a successful speaker on your vision board and imagine that you are that speaker.
4. Use positive self-talk in the time leading up to the presentation. Consciously say to yourself things like "I feel comfortable speaking to these people". "This audience came a long way to hear my message today".
Now, before you think that visualization is the only key to being the best speaker in the history of the world, I need to make sure you also take tangible steps in the right direction. Remember that actions determine results.
Larry Winget says it best in this quote: "What you think about, talk about, and get off your ass and do something about comes about".
After you have completed the important steps of visualization, you need to craft your presentation and then rehearse it. Rehearse it out loud, and time your presentation so that you know how long it is.
This is the Law of Attraction in Action for presenters.
Step 1. Visualize.
Step 2. Take appropriate actions.
Step 3. Enjoy the results of your labor with a memorable presentation.
