1. Prepare: The best way to overcome stage fright and nervousness is to be well-prepared. Take the time to research the topic of your speech and practice delivering it. Make sure to also practice speaking in front of a mirror or with a friend or family member so you can get comfortable speaking in front of an audience.

2. Practice Relaxation Techniques: Taking some deep breaths or practicing progressive muscle relaxation can help to calm you down before your speech. You can also try visualization techniques to help you focus and stay positive.

3. Visualize Success: Visualize yourself giving a successful speech and imagine the positive reactions of your audience. This can help you stay focused and confident during your speech.
