The voices inside our head often lie to us. They tell us we are fat when we’re thin, ugly when we’re beautiful or wrong when we are right.
Often our inner voice exaggerates reality, sometimes positively, but often negatively.
So why do so many of us choose to practice our speeches using our inner voices – inside our head?
The very best form of speech rehearsal is speaking aloud. Nice an
d loud, to practice your intonation and your volume and most importantly, to hear yourself saying it right!
Don’t practice that speech using the voice in your head, because more
often than not, that voice is wrong (like that time when it said you were overweight!).
