These are skills that can be learned.
My story:
Many years ago, as a stutterer I was quite sure that being able to speak without stuttering was beyond me. Following a debate one day with a co-worker really upset me because I couldn't get the words out that I wanted to say. It was suggested to me that learning public speaking would help. Huh!! You've got to be kidding; I'd tried art of speech training - didn't do much and I still can't roll my "r's". Speech pathologists found me beyond their help! Using different words than those I intended just made me feel un-educated! And yet I did it. Within two years of joining a speech group I had won speaking competitions, opened my own business training others, and furthered my knowledge in communication skills. Believe me, if I could do it, so can you!
