Psychological Hacks To Public Speaking

speaker-at-business-conference-and-presentationMost vibrant, whip-smart professionals find it easy to make it through their daily corporate life. However, when it is time for a presentation, they often find themselves locked up, presenting in a way that is difficult to watch.

If you fall into the same category, you could use some help. Here are a few psychological hacks to public speaking that will allow you to deliver presentations that leave the impact:

We Read People Instantly

As soon as you step up on the stage or the front of the conference room, the audience is going to start sizing you up.

A confident body language and researched introduction can help you start on the right foot.

They subconsciously start taking your lead through the presentation and stay attentive throughout.

We Are Wired To Follow Leaders

When you are presenting, you have all the authority in the room. Therefore, the decisions you make next are vital so that you don’t lose their attention.

It is important that you stay in form from the start and take lead. Read about the 1960’s Stanley Milgram’s experiments that showed how it is almost impossible for people to oppose authority.

We Are Attentive To Vocal Tone

How you say something is as important as what you say. The greatest speakers across history have used this technique throughout history with variations in their volumes, articulation and modulation.

Professor Alex Pentland from MIT also wrote a book, Honest Signals in which he emphasized on the importance of using vocal tone to communicate effectively.

We Imitate Emotions

Passion and nervousness are two highly communicable emotions. Focus on what you would like people to feel during your presentation and then exhibit the emotion yourself. The emotions will be conveyed through your body language and vocal tone. There are special Mirror Neurons in our brains that allow us to literally experience what other people experience.

One last thing; reading slides never worked for everyone. Your audience is going to be more strongly affected by your words. There should be enough visuals to support your words but not so many that they interfere.

Entrepreneurial Stress Is A Real Thing—Here’s How You Handle It

pexels-photoEntrepreneurs handle a good deal of stress on a day to day basis. Whether you are starting out or have already taken your startup to level 2, you are still bound to encounter obstacles where you just can’t handle all that’s on your plate.

Stress is a real thing that not many people mention when talking about entrepreneurship. If you are wondering how to handle all this stress, these tips from leading business consultant and hypnotist, Marshall Sylver will help:

It Is Okay To Invest In Help

As an entrepreneur, you are passionate about your vision and know that you can achieve it. However, this can often lead you to think you can do everything by yourself.

This makes it critical to look for help in the earlier stage of your business. If you can’t really hire fulltime employees, consider outsourcing different functions of your business.

If your business runs 24/7, you can also invest in a VA to answer the phone and take care of administrative tasks. You will be at peace knowing that while you are doing your part, you have professionals to take care of the rest.

Don’t Always Go For Cheap

One of the most important advice for entrepreneurs is to not go with cheap every time. As soon as you officially start your business, invest in a recognized attorney.

Going into legal contracts and partnerships without one could end up costing you thousands of dollars. You never know what kind of issues might come your way. Remember, if you haven’t protected your business enough you might lose a lot of it down the line.

Say No To Family Money

It is quite common for entrepreneurs to ask family members to fund their business. This is going to add to a lot of stress down the line. It is stressful enough to start up a business, you don’t want to end up leaving a family member in financial ruins because of it.

There are plenty of ways to finance your business. Apply through your bank or a credit union and return it with ease.

While entrepreneurs can work 24/7, it is highly impractical. Make sure that you have enough personal time by setting boundaries.

10 Reasons How Partnering With A Business Hypnotist Can Transform Your Life


Are you as happy as you want to be—with your business, emotionally, and financially? Do you want to take things up a notch?

While some people have a calling—they want to be soldiers, doctors and lawyers—others are content with a 9 to 5 lifestyle.

Then, there are those like you—ready to take on the challenges that come with setting up your own business.

However, starting up and operating a business requires great psychological strength.

Inevitably you will often find yourself stuck in a mess where accomplishing your goals just don’t seem to be possible.

Fortunately, there is a solution: hypnosis. Here are a few reasons why partnering with a hypnotist may be the best decision you make:

1. You’re Focused: You Get What You Want

Business hypnosis is targeted at helping you and your employees drive sales. You and your team will be equipped with secrets of persuasion and communication.

2. You’re More Compelling: You Communicate Better

If you have been working on your business for the past years, you will agree that success depends on your ability to communicate. This is also where most business hypnotists will start. Becoming a better communicator is the first step to conveying your ideas and goals to clients.

3. Boosts Effectiveness

When you are effective, you use your time responsibly. This helps improve you as well as your employees. A leading business hypnotist like Marshall Sylver will also guide you on how motivations work differently for men and women so that you can keep your entire team in line with your goals.

4. Creates Genuine Connections With People

Your success as a businessman also depends on how much people around you understand you. Whether it is the employees, a customer or a million dollar client, everyone loves to be listened to. This is what helps you develop long lasting business relationships.

5. Becomes An Inspiration

When you have 24/7 guidance of a business hypnotist, you set the tone for success. Many business owners may avoid going for personal development guidance because they perceive it to be too much work.

However, what they might forget is that their team look up to them; it is their job to inspire them. You need the right training. A hypnotist can help you become a true leader.

6. You’re Motivated

When you don’t get the results you expect, it can be tough. You lose motivation, the drive, as the passion fades.

A few months with a business hypnotist will help you rejuvenate and come back with renewed vigor. It keeps you motivated and focused.

7. Grow Spiritually

Intelligence comes from acquiring new information. Spirituality, on the other hand, comes from self-reflection and a deeper understanding of things that are much bigger than we are.

When you have a reliable professional constantly guiding you about how your mind works, you become more accepting of things around you. You unlock inner wisdom that can be a crucial element for your success.

8. Everyone Will Benefit

Partnering with a business hypnotist means everyone related to you and your business will benefit. From employees to customers and even your family—everyone will see the difference.

9. Be Happier

Stress is a disease. While it is unavoidable, controlling it is something you can master. Your business hypnotist will be able to help you navigate and keep a steady balance between work life, personal life, finances and all the components in the equation.

Evade Anxiety By Realigning Your Mind

child-anxietyAnxiety varies on a spectrum. It’s not the same for everyone.

For some, it’s a constant, nagging feelings. Others are so sensitive to it, that a simple situation can be translated as an immediate threat, putting your brain on high alert—sending you into a fight or flight mode.

Anxiety is instinctive. It’s an automatic response. And sometimes, it can be crippling.

What Is Acute Anxiety?

Acute anxiety typically lasts for a shorter period. On the other hand, chronic anxiety is long term. It may also be accompanied with PTSD and other disorders that require professional help.

The perfect example of acute anxiety would be the feeling you get before going on a date with someone for the first time. You will only feel anxious during the date and the feeling will dissipate once you get home.

While it sounds harmless, the downside is that being anxious in the first place means you are anticipating something bad to happen.

The anxiety you experience before going to the movies or going out with someone is also called social anxiety.

Realigning Your Mind

The good part? You can harness this energy into something more positive and powerful.

If you think about it, most of the times you are anxious, you emerge safe and secure.

Realigning your mind using a few simple strategies can dramatically cut down chances of developing anxiety in the future. Here’s what you can do:

  1. If you are heading out on a date, consider all the common interests you share with the other person and how happy they make you. Ask yourself questions like:
    1. Why do I feel so happy meeting someone who is also interested in (music)?
    2. Why do I love the idea of meeting someone who loves music as much as I do?
  1. Head down the hall mirror. Smile at yourself and breathe slowly. Ask yourself why do you expect to enjoy yourself on this date?
  2. Try to think of activities like adventures. For example, many people who have dental anxiety consider the dentist as a person who may cause pain. However, modern dental clinics also use anesthetics for patients who are too anxious. This means the dentist is actually on your side; he has already planned a way to make the procedures pain free for you.

Every time we express a strong emotion, we put the mind in a hypnotic state.

Here is where you need to realign your mind by suggesting ideas as questions. In simpler words, tell yourself that things will go well; over time, you will successfully rewire your brain and bring it in line with the positive feelings.
