Overcoming public speaking anxiety

I have successfully gotten over my long time fear of speaking in public and having anxiety and these have been some tools that have helped me. I feel that knowing my topic really well to the point where you don’t have to look down at any papers and you can confidently look and tell anyone about the topic you are speaking about. Practice, Practice, Practice I cannot emphasize this enough, but practice is the best thing you can do to prepare yourself to present anything. Some things that I’ve done is visualize myself in front of a big crowd and giving my speech in a mirror trying to visualize myself in high pressure situations.
