The #1 fear is public speaking; #2 is death.
When renowned California rock climber Hans Florine was asked in an interview about how scary it is to hang on a cliff 2,000 feet above the ground, only a slip away from certain death, he answered, “I believe it is second only to the No. 1 fear people have: public speaking.”

Hat’s off to you! As a result of your Reluctant Speakers Workshop, I was paid the ultimate compliment this morning. I ran into someone who heard me speak on Sunday morning. She said that I was a gifted speaker, that I stayed on topic, and that I was very articulate. I wanted to laugh out loud because I don’t see myself that way at all, but thanks to you, someone else did!
