WATCH: Tap Out Your Fears! Episode 2: Fear Of Public Speaking

As we look further into the fears that can stop us from getting the most out of life -- or from putting the most into it -- it's easy to see that the fear of public speaking can be a powerful blocker. How much more success, joy and fulfillment could you experience if you felt more comfortable sharing yourself -- and your gifts and talents -- with more people? Let's tap out any fear of doing so!

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing fear. Some folks may find that their fear of public speaking dissolves after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off this very common fear, freeing you up to feel better about how you present yourself to the world so you can enjoy life more. Try it the night before your next presentation, speech, or wedding toast, and let us know if it helped you!

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I always encourage tappers to take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at
