HOW TO MANAGE ANXIETY, UNDERSTAND THE MIND/BODY RELATIONSHIP, FOCUS ON YOUR AUDIENCE & MAKE AN ‘OUT OF THIS WORLD’ SPEECH
Multi-volume author, Vince Stevenson introduces us to his second of three non-fiction books, “The Fear Doctor”:
HOW TO MANAGE ANXIETY
UNDERSTAND THE MIND/BODY RELATIONSHIP
FOCUS ON YOUR AUDIENCE & MAKE AN ‘OUT OF THIS WORLD’ SPEECH
In The Fear Doctor, Vince Stevenson discusses issues that can throw you into a spin. Vince describes himself as a ‘recovering speaker’ following a panic attack in front of a Board meeting in the mid-80s and discusses how just a few years later he was applying for top salaried jobs in an international training role. The journey is rocky and fun too. Vince shares stories of his egotistical early days as a cricketer and a successful footballer: how one silly decision lost him the opportunity of possibly going professional and, most importantly, what he learned about life, business and how to accelerate achievements by getting out of his own way.
Confucius said, ‘Find an occupation you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.’ When Vince found his vocation as a trainer, he never looked back. Thousands of hours in the classroom with thousands of talented graduate students helped him to forge his message and stay on top of this highly competitive profession. Using self-deprecating humour as a shield and armed with a philosophy of respect, humility and empathy, Vince has worked from Brazil to Bangladesh with some of the world’s top consultancies and NGOs.
What this book reveals is how to:
- Manage anxiety
- Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want
- Understand your thoughts
- Understand your body
- Understand the mind/body relationship
- Focus on your audience
- Deliver an out-of-this-world speech
We all struggle with fear and anxiety at one level or another. This book is full of practical tips, quotes and wisdom to live a more enjoyable and relaxed life.
The methods the author shares are not limited to helping a person make a better speech; these proven techniques are of great value, and useful in any part of life. He has the experience to back up his claims and knows what he is talking about having been a corporate trainer and professional speaker for many years.
What is even better is that Vince shares so many videos that can help a person relax and gain better self-control when speaking in front of others.
I have taken the Dale Carnegie course in effective public speaking, he mentioned and it helped me overcome a stammering problem quite a bit. I learned that being in control is fun and enjoyable, but only when you have planned, prepared and practiced properly. Vince makes it seem like pleasurable.
I award Vince’s book, “The Fear Doctor” a score of 4.9 stars. The score would have been higher except for a handful of spelling errors.
