Dressing for a Speech that Scares You to Death

You have been called upon to give a speech; you've practiced your speech many times over, but you are still scared out of your wits! Now it's time to look outward at your clothing. When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you have more confidence.

Spend an afternoon watching a program such as QVC, or the news. Take notes about the clothing the announcers are wearing - from their neck on down to their shoes (if you can see them). What's being worn for jewelery? What about the hair?

When you've come up with a list of what you feel is a dress for success outfit, go shopping, spend a little extra money on something that looks and feels great, get a manicure, and visit your stylist.

When you look good, you naturally feel more confident, and that confidence will spill over into your speech.
