"For most of my life, I had a terrorizing fear of public speaking. But there I was, about to conduct a presentation to 15,000 people." Scared Speechless is the story of how an ordinary guy, Roy Rosell, overcame his crippling fear of public speaking and social anxiety. Roy often found himself crouched over a toilet with nerves-induced nausea before presentations, no matter the size of the audience. During presentations, he sweated, suffered, and spent half the time on stage trying to convince himself not to jump out of the boardroom window. His fear of public speaking controlled every aspect of his life for twelve years-his relationships were tarnished, professional future jeopardized, and he was on the brink of dropping out of college. That is, until he was asked to speak in front of 15,000 people at his graduation ceremony. In this hilarious and inspiring new book, Scared Speechless, author Roy Rosell reveals everything he learned (the hard way) about overcoming fear, hesitation, and doubt. By sharing his sometimes-hysterical, sometimes-painful stories about his twelve years of living with a debilitating fear of public speaking, Roy shows the reader how he overcame glossophobia and became a lover of public speaking. In the three months before his graduation speech, Roy developed a system that helped him transform from a student terrorized by the thought of public speaking, to a dynamic, outgoing speaker who delivered an empowering graduation speech to a captivated crowd. Scared Speechless is a unique, entertaining, and inspiring page-turner, a delightful trek through all the embarrassments and accomplishments Roy experienced while battling his own fear-and triumphing over it. If you want to overcome the fears holding you hostage, this book is for you. It is a book for students, working professionals, and anyone who is faced with the daunting task of breaking past a barrier to achieve their goals. In Scared Speechless, Roy shares his often times ridiculous journey and reveals his hard-won tips, tactics, and tales-to help you conquer your fear and doubts. Jam packed with hilarious, heart-warming, and illuminating stories of success and disasters, Scared Speechless is inspirational, sometimes disgustingly honest, and a total joy ride to read.
