They’re more interesed in themselves than in you

What we look and sound like isn’t particularly important to others–even when we’re giving a speech. They’re more interested in themselves than they are in us. We become of interest when we get in the way.

You can get in the way by worrying what they’re thinking about you, or about your ability to remember what you want to say. You can get in the way by trying to impress them. Pretty much if you’re thinking about yourself, you’re getting in the way. And then they’re forced to think about you.

Stay focused on your purpose in speaking to them and on the benefits to them of the material. That goes a long way toward keeping your audience focused where they need to be focused–on your subject.
