Fear of talking to famous people
Certainly, it might be hard to present in front of the famous and professional people. It is normal to fear of talking to famous people. so it’s necessary to learn some ways and tricks to overcome the fear.
In this article, you will learn some handy techniques to overcome the fear of public speaking in front of famous people.
How to talk to famous people?
1- Watch their previous interviews
Luckily for us, there are many video archives of this stuff that you can easily search on Google or YouTube.
This way you know which kind of question they like or to which kind they have weaker answers. When they get to trouble with the interviewers, etc.
2- Read their feed-backs and comments
If your chosen famous person has an article, biography, etc. read it immediately to know about his believes.
Try not to ask the obvious question which each interviewer asks. Different questions can be challenging and more exciting. For example, if he has a normal life or it is not related to the subject, avoid asking it. otherwise, the person you are interviewing will not enjoy, answer excitingly or have fun doing it.
3- When famous people affect you
It is normal to be impressed by famous people. They are in a higher position but don’t get nervous and impressed because they are someone special. No, they are human beings like you. I have an interesting suggestion for you.
Imagine this person is a human being the same as you. yes, he might have a higher position but he/she is the same as you. when the interview is over, this person wants to go home, wearing pajamas, eat some food, talk to his family, or sometimes even argue with his/her kids.
I tested this in one of my classes. I asked my students to imagine someone important with pajamas. They started to laugh but then they felt more comfortable if it was time to talk to them.
Even Brian Tracy says: if you have the fear of public speaking in front of your audience, imagine they are all naked listening to you. yes, it’s funny but it’s helpful when it comes to talking to famous people.
I hope you can be successful talking to famous people after attending these three simple ways: watching videos and interviews of them, read their biography and feed-backs. Don’t be impressed by their high position.
