Unstoppable. With effective public speaking skills, you are. In business, when you speak with confidence, you win huge rewards. You'll get noticed, get promoted, convince clients, get recognized as a genius and make a unique contribution.

Use these 7 tips to be a fearless and unstoppable presenter - in record time.

1.Conquer Your Fear
Just like superman, put on your cape. Get ready to conquer any last niggling bits of fear or nervousness.

Instead of letting fear stop you, be a samurai. Take every step forward and never look back. Each presentation, resolve to never be stopped by your fear.

This attitude adjustment is the most important tip. Without it, you have no foundation to build on. But with your rock-solid focus, you'll quickly leave fear in the dust.

2. Slash Excuses
Eliminate the internal chatter. No excuses. Adopt a no-tolerance policy with yourself. If you are serious about learning effective public speaking skills, this is absolutely essential.

Stay at the top of your game by refusing to listen to all the reasons why you don't have time to learn, time to take an online course or time to work with a coach.

Slash and burn your excuses completely out of your mind.

3. Reduce Stress
Learning new skills to be an effective public speaker can be stressful. In fact, learning any new skill stretches you to new levels. That's the power of learning. You won't be the same once you understand the system and skills required.

The fastest way to ease stress is to create a routine. Pick a time of the day when you'll focus on skill building. Stick to it. The clients that achieve the best results often do the shortest amount of training - but do it every single day.

4. Aim High
Executives, leaders and sales professionals know a single truth: you'll be able to present your way to the top. But you must aim high.

Don't settle for second-best. Don't let your standards falter or swerve. Always aim for the highest performance and your giving your best. In every presentation - whether formal or informal.

5. Stay Fit
Like so many skills, unless you practice regularly, you can lose fitness. It's easy to stop practicing once you learn the basics of storytelling, engaging with whiteboard sketches or inspiring people to take action.

But the basics are not enough. The more you practice, the better you'll get. Just like going to the gym. With focus and new goals, you'll stay more fit the more you work out.

Becoming an exceptional presenter is a lot like becoming a pro-athlete. It feels great - and you can't ever let your eye off the ball.

6. Make A Difference
We're here for just a short time. Make a difference in the world. This motivation to contribute, make a difference and leave the world a better place than you found it, is extremely motivating.

Whether you are advocating for a specific cause, contributing your natural enthusiasm or sharing a new invention - present your message with passion.

7. Commit To Learning
As so many leaders speak about, learning is the single mark of a great leader. To be the most interesting speaker in the world, commit to continuous learning. Discover the power of presenting on video, in virtual meetings and in high-stakes face-to-face settings.

Each environment has unique challenges. Stay inspired and commit to learning.

These tips can be used for personal brand presentations as well as business pitches. After all, you're the one in front of the room. Focus on each tip and hard-wire it into your daily practice.

The payoff? You'll be unstoppable. It's a universal law in presenting: When you put in the effort, you'll reap the rewards.
