Trying to WIN over the fear associated with stammering...

I read an article about an retired police official from UK,Mr.Alan Badmington, how he won over those 10-12 feared alphabets which he substituted for most of his life by using those alphabets in his talk again and again intentionally.

Now, he is a good public speaker who have won a number of awards in various speaking competitions.


I am also trying to do the same thing at my office as well as residence.It is really not easy for me and i am stammering a lot.Sometimes, i feel that by using those feared alphabets again and again, I am simply making it more difficult for me because feared words are just mind driven.

But, on the other hand, i feels that i am doing the right thing by stammering more and more and getting desensitized from those words.

From last few years, i am following the absolute NO SUBSTITUTION of words/alphabets policy in my speaking.Some times, it happens that I just a different word out of my vocabulary and my mind will immediately condemn that i have substituted a word and it will make me sad and anxious and will take a few hours or even a few days to forget that incident.I feels that I really needs a DETOXIFICATION of thoughts that comes into my mind on daily basis.

From today onwards, I am going to meditate atleast 1 hour daily for DETOXIFICATION of my mind and the thoughts arises in it.

Thanks for reading all these abrupt thoughts of me.

Regarding your last post about the role of volunteering, I have found an old post at Samagra's blog; very relevant and useful:

Consciously slower your though process, to better improve ur thinking speaking coordination. Use positive affirmation daily. Once thinking n speaking gets synchronized u ll improve greatly.
