To state that there’s no egotism in somebody who does public speaking often or to get a living could be undoubtedly a false statement. To visualize how you could ever be that much larger than life is mind boggling.
That is because you are doing the impossible. You are having a dialogue with tons of individuals all at once. Now, whether you believe like you are having that dialogue or not is not significant. You may not understand the dialog is occuring, if your discussion is not interactive. But in the heads of every single person in that hall, they are socializing with you. What you are saying is getting down inside of them and they are responding to it.

But it does mean that you understand that your worth to this group is as a speaker and that your services are wanted and needed here. In fact, the only method you will be an effective public speaker is if you possess the room. Treat that room like it was your house and these individuals came here simply because being with you is simply that amazing.
It can be a bit odd if you observe yourself become larger than life. But you can be modest about it and simply understand it is part of the craft of becoming a great public speake
