The greatest of all human fears is the fear of speaking in front of other people. Wikipedia states, "The fear of public speaking affects between 75% and 95% of the population." However, a study by Stanford University and AT&T states, "The top predictor of professional success and upward mobility is how much you enjoy and how good you are at public speaking." That means the very thing we fear the most is the biggest key to our success!
