Do this to your topic
First of all, accept that the issue in you triggers something stopping. Perhaps it is not the theme itself, which slows down, but the associations triggered by the theme.
Which of the two possibilities is, but you do not need to explore in detail now, it is enough to know that something is slowing down.
What does the audience expect?
Now go to your audience in the spirit. People want to know something about you, and to a certain extent certainly experience something. You are the one who will give you the knowledge and the experience.
This is your role, you have the competence to do so. Now write your speech, the keywords of the most important content are enough. Underline some of the most important words on which the content of the lecture depends.
The image in front of the inner eye
Imagine each one of the underlined terms, let a colored, plastic, and moving image of the object or object arise in front of your inner eye.
Be highly creative here, so that this inner image is so vibrant with life. Now, pronounce the words aloud, the edited keywords suffice. But do not speak until the colored, lively picture is absolutely present in you.
Why the right association is important
It is very important that you closely link the speech to the picture, so that no word comes over your lips, to which there is not a living image in front of your inner eye.
The associations that arise in front of your inner eye are very important: they help you to convey a vivid, vivid picture of what you want to say. And these positive emotions are transferred to the reader.
If this succeeds, you can go through the terms again and allow yourself to explore their qualities, such as odors, sounds, or their meaning for humans or perhaps for the whole of mankind.
This gives meaning to these terms, creates a certain generality that is understandable for all people.
The power of associations
In the next step, speak the terms out loud again, having both the image and the emotional qualities present before you speak.
We have now learned how important associations are in order to be able to successfully deliver content. But something else is important: personal involvement and emotions.
Link images with personal experiences
This is followed by a crowning further step: you link the concepts with your personal experiences and / or your personal experience. This does not happen immediately with every concept, especially when it concerns technical or scientific terms.
But go search. You may find a reminder or story that gives personality to these terms. Of course, it is most beautiful when your humor comes to fruition.
The visual and emotional quality is important
Now go through the terms again and speak, if the picture, the quality and the personal relationship are absolutely clear in front of your inner eye.
You must practice it! To present the visual, emotional and personal quality of each term in a very short time is a challenging task.
Speak with presence
Now you speak your entire lecture, but do not begin a meaning section around one of these key words until the three qualities of the key concept are present in your inner experience.
Did you record the first version of your lecture and now the last one? It would be exciting, what is the big difference between the two variants.
Compact: Speak plastic! Concepts and themes that do not lie with us are enlivened by the fact that we have a colorful, living image in front of us, feel qualities such as odors, noises and moods and connect them with personal experience.
Have you got fun with the themes of your negative list? I wish it to you, for we can not press against it.
What to do if the topic is not ours
Sooner or later, we are confronted with a topic that is absolutely not ours. So, if you want to refuse a topic at the first moment, please be pleased.
It takes only a little more attention than your favorite subjects, in order to be able to finally become one!
Example: The plastic language of a lecturer
Melanie is a lecturer. She teaches adults who are at work. Like her colleagues, she is professionally well trained. Nevertheless, she feels uncertain in many respects. She has the feeling not to know enough. For them, it is questionable whether the lessons meet the needs of their students. Melanie's feeling is in contrast to the feedback she receives from schoolchildren and colleagues. It is considered committed and competent. Nevertheless, she focuses on critical teaching moments in her self-assessment.
Where does the self-image come from?
Like every legend, the self-image of Melanie has a real core. Characterized by the high standards which her parents made to her, she is not content with herself, and she puts this disorder on her teaching situation.
That is why the work begins directly in the head in this case. Melanie looks at her situation from a new angle.
Share life experience
Those who come to her class want to learn something. They want concrete help to help them get along better in everyday life. The best way to help Melanie is by sharing personal life experiences with her listeners.
This first step is followed by a second, which has to do with the teaching of the teaching material. Melanie - she teaches psychology - now associates with each subject a concept, which she creates as a plastic colored image in front of the inner eye.
In a third step, she now links the subject with a humorous situation that she has personally experienced. Between each individual step, she again presents some sentences from the teaching material. The change in the sound of her voice is striking.
The newly acquired angle of view causes her voice to become more sonorous, more sonorous, and appealing to the listener from lecture sequence to lecture sequence. The change is also clearly visible for Melanie. The meeting with the pupils now works.
