It doesn't always happen like that but when it does, it's good to remember the fifth element of successful performance...let's run through the list:
- Plan -- Nothing beats great planning. Have a firm grasp of the big picture, understand WHY you're speaking, and then determine the theme and structure of your presentation.
- Prepare -- Research, interview, get advice, and take care of the little touches that will make your speech a guaranteed success.
- Practice -- Make sure your presentation is flawless and THEN start the rehearsal process. (Remember, practice doesn't make perfect...perfect practice makes perfect.)
- Present -- If you've done everything above correctly, then you can relax and have fun!
and the fifth element--Patience. Everything happens when it's supposed to happen. so you might as well enjoy the ride.
