- Maybe I’m not cut out for public speaking.
- Maybe no one will listen to me.
- Maybe someone will laugh at me.
- Maybe I’m the only one who gets nervous in front of people.
- Maybe I’ll forget what I want to say.
- Maybe I shouldn’t give that speech because I might mess it up.
- Maybe I should let my colleague do the presentation.
- Maybe those public speaking books aren’t worth the price.
- Maybe I can’t learn anything at Toastmasters.
- Maybe I can’t learn from my past mistakes.
- Maybe I can’t improve.
- Maybe you’re either born a good public speaker or you’re not.
- Maybe I’m not.
- Maybe I should just keep quiet.
- Or maybe I’m just making excuses …
