Public Speaking Phobia: Afraid of Tricky Questions from the Audience? Check on the Questions You’re Asking Yourself…

For many occasional public speakers there’s a constant fear of being frozen by a question from the audience. But the questions we ask ourselves internally have a much greater impact, explains stage fright and performance anxiety expert Seymour Segnit.

New York, NY – November 12, 2010 — CTRN: Change That’s Right Now, Inc. announces the release of ‘Ask Yourself Great Questions’, the latest in their video series ‘Confidently Speaking’ – frequent video tutorials on how to eliminate Stage Fright and Fear of Public Speaking.

“Any good sales training will teach you to ask lots of questions,” says Seymour Segnit, presenter of the Confidently Speaking video series ( ) and Founder & President of CTRN, a company which specializes in helping people overcome extreme fear. “Questions engage the mind – AND they also direct the line of thinking. To think and feel great about anything – including a public speaking performance – just ask yourself the right kind questions beforehand.”

Segnit suggests an analysis of your ‘self-talk’ – the internal conversation we all have with ourselves. Different questions get completely different responses, which then affect our feelings and state and thus how we perform.

By asking questions that imply a positive outcome, like ‘what would happen if we doubled our sales?’, a different level of energy and enthusiasm becomes automatic – making for far superior results.

This episode is on YouTube at and has this and all the short video lessons available 24×7. Confidently Speaking offers further help through CTRN’s ‘VIP’ program. They also offer a popular system for speaking fear and any kind of stage fright Vanquish Fear & Anxiety, which is available both as a CD program and for immediate download at: .

“Questions are immensely powerful,” says Segnit. “Just try this. First ask yourself ‘What happens if I fail’ 5 times in a row, and then ‘What happens if I’m unbelievably successful?’ Automatically, the second will get you feeling powerful and confident you can overcome your stage fright and speak without fear!”
