Public Speaking is Like Riding A Bike

Developing your public speaking skills and becoming a great presenter is a lot like riding a bike. If you decided to go on a 50 mile bike ride, you wouldn't jump on your bike one day and start riding 50 miles. You would prepare for the trip. Train for the trip. Start biking 5 miles, then 10, then 15, and so on. You may be a little nervous at first. You may have challenges to overcome, like hills, bad weather, a sore butt! But if you prepare, if you take on those challenges, and if you keep developing those muscles, you will become a great cyclist.

The same principle applies to public speaking skills. Every presentation deserves preparation in order to be a success. Every presentation may have challenges you need to overcome. And every presentation needs to be presented by you in order for you to develop your skills. As you prepare, take on challenges, and keep presenting, you will keep developing your skills and become a much better presenter than you are today.
