5. The audience wants you to succeed
Last year, I was getting ready to step on stage at a conference in Switzerland and deliver a keynote to almost 1,000 business leaders. Before I walked out, a friend looked at me and said, “Remember, they want you to succeed.”
And he was right. Who doesn’t want to hear a great speech? Who wouldn’t want to hear a story they will remember for years? Who wouldn’t want to discover a product, service, or idea that changes their life or business?
The people you are talking to—whether they are business partners, potential clients or total strangers— are looking for someone to cheer on. They want you to be the best thing that happens to them all day.
All you need to do is put yourself out there. The audience is waiting to support you.
