Part I: Assessing Your Skills > Dealing with Anxiety

Chapter 4. Dealing with Anxiety

Anxiety is a natural state that exists any time we are placed under stress. Giving a presentation normally will cause some stress. When this type of stress occurs, physiological changes take place that may cause symptoms such as a nervous stomach, sweating, tremors in the hands and legs, accelerated breathing, and/or increased heart rate.

Don’t worry! If you have any of these symptoms before or during a presentation you are normal. If none of these things happen you are one in a million. Almost everyone experiences some stress before presentations, even when the task is something simple like, “tell the group something about yourself.” The trick is to make your excess energy work for you.
