What Can We Learn About Public Speaking From Henry Ford?

Though the quote is variously reported, quoted and misquoted, Henry Ford is reported to have said some variation of the following:

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're probably right, Henry Ford Quote

How does this apply to Public Speaking?

Well if you approach any situation in the frame of mind “I can’t do this”, then you are probably going to be right. It wont go well, or at least not as well as it could do. Worse again, your belief that you can’t speak well in public becomes a self fulfilling prophecy, that is to say, you say “I can’t to it”, which sets you up to fail before you begin, then when you do fail (partly or wholly because of your negative state of mind) you see that as proof that you are right, and say “See, I told you I couldn’t do it”

What you think massively and heavily influences how you feel, and your ability to carry out any given task.

If you think “I can do this” from the outset, your chances of success at your chosen task are much greater than a starting position of “I can’t do this”

On a Make That Speech course, we work to break the negativity cycle and help you move from a negative ‘can’t’ position to a positive and empowering ‘can’ position using NLP techniques and hypnosis.
