3 Major Steps To Control Your Stuttering Difficulty
In this podcast, today, I will walk you through three major steps which if done daily, can help you significantly with your stuttering or stammer. A first important step towards overcoming your speech difficulty is developing a habit of analyzing the way you currently speak. The second step would be eliminating all abnormal behaviors you do as a stutterer or stammerer. Third, and the most crucial step is taking meaningful positive actions to control any obstacles or blocks you currently have as a stutterer. Can you recall how many times you had difficulty introducing yourself in public? Introducing myself was the biggest challenge I faced as a stutterer until I started practicing Step 1, which states to analyze the way you currently stutter or stammer. What I found might surprise you, but also maybe you can relate. During conversations with people, I had a habit of hiding my face and looking away. I did not keep eye contact when talking to people and it was always awkward for me and the person I’m talking to. That is how embarrassed I was when introducing myself to people. It was probably because of the fear of embarrassment. Have you had a similar experience before? One of the biggest fears stutterers and stammerers face is the fear of introducing themselves to other people for the first time. Until I started documenting and analyzing my stutter, I never realized what I was doing. I was hiding, and not living to my full potential. After this realization, I began taking decisive steps to eliminate behaviors around my stuttering which I did not like. Soon enough, this change in my behavior gave me more confidence and made my communication with others a lot easier. It helped me come across as more trustworthy because I was not embarrassed to look at people in their eyes as we talk. Will applying these 3 steps help you with your stuttering? No doubt that it will help you with your stuttering or stammer. Adopting this new habit by applying these same three steps that helped me change my stuttering behavior will transform the way you speak and give you more confidence to help you overcome your stuttering difficulty. Here are the steps you can take today: First, analyze your current stuttering behavior. Second, look at the behaviors that you want to eliminate that are unnecessary or abnormal. Third, take positive actions towards eliminating unwanted behaviors.

Wouldn’t be nice to be able to know how to deal with each circumstance or each you know situation that you go through in your life. To deal with it effectively and start speaking powerfully and not stutter in those situations. For me personally, I had a tough time saying my name, introducing myself to people.

Why You Should NOT Listen To Your Speech Therapist?
I am here today in this podcast to tell you why you should not listen to your speech therapist. You might be skeptical about who I am and why should you listen to me, but if you hear what I have to say you might understand my point of view. I want to acknowledge the fact that more often then not speech therapists have your best interests at their heart. They are fantastic at what they do, and throughout history, they’ve helped millions of people. The tremendous value they bring benefits to a vast number of people with stutter or stammer. Throughout the podcast, there are three key points I addressed and how they apply in reality. The first point I talk about is a technique you probably learned from your speech therapist. It is about changing the rhythm of your speech patterns to resemble singing. That kind of strategy is being taught to and applied by clients of speech therapists. If you are like a significant majority of stutterers or stammerers, odds are that you can sing without stuttering or stammering. So the strategy is to speak almost as you are singing. This kind of strategy reflects positively in overcoming stuttering. By changing the frequency and the tone of your speech pattern helps you overcome your stutter. However, If you can speak fluently in private, in front of a mirror, when no one else is around, it is evident to me that you can speak without stuttering, and not needing to speak in a rhythm. You should focus on rewiring your brain to speak in public as you do in private. Speech therapists teach you how to effectively rewire your brain to create a new habit of speaking in a rhythm. In my opinion, that does not make much sense because you are putting in the effort to learn how to speak in a rhythm, whereas you may as well put in the same amount of effort to rewire your brain to create a new habit to speak naturally. The second point and another strategy to reduce and stop stuttering taught by speech therapists is avoiding trigger words, sounds, syllables, and consonants. You are taught to avoid certain words or sounds that cause you to stutter. To start applying this method, you have to identify the words, sounds, vowels, and consonants that are difficult for you to say. It requires to retrain your brain and rewire the way you speak and think, so you avoid those words. The technique is similar to speaking with a rhythm only this time you are rewiring your brain and retraining yourself to avoid those words. I firmly believe that it is not a viable option to spend the rest of your life avoiding these trigger words/sounds/syllables. If you’re going to spend the time and effort required to rewire your brain and retrain yourself to learn how to avoid those triggers, you may as well put that effort and time into learning how to speak fluently, confidently, and courageously…naturally. The third key point I talk about is about supporting medical devices or speech monitors. Speech monitors are usually attached to your outer ear, and they regulate sound frequencies with delayed feedback to help a person speak fluently. They change the way you hear sounds and most importantly, how you hear yourself. They are instrumental in helping people stop stuttering. But my question to you is; do you really want to spend your entire life having something attached to your ear so you can speak fluently? Although these strategies and devices taught by therapists do work, they have their flaws. There is an abundance of alternative things you can learn, understand, and do about your stutter that will allow you to transfer how you speak in private to how you speak in public. I hope you enjoyed this podcast and I hope you got something out of it. Like, comment, share, download and do not forget to leave us a suggestion about this podcast or other podcasts you would like to listen, or perhaps even write down any questions which you would like to be answered. I genuinely believe that anyone can become a fluent speaker if they put their mind and consistent effort to form a new habit.

Simple Trick To Reduce Your Stuttering
This podcast supplements the podcast I created recently about visualization and how visualization can help you reduce and ultimately stop your stuttering. I will explain how you have already been using visualization, both consciously and subconsciously, in your daily life without even realizing. Most people stutter because of built-up anxiety and mental blockage in their mind. Many stutterers have a tendency to focus on a negative outcome that’s not yet happened. They are visualizing the future in a negative light and attracting it to happen. If you stutter, odds are you can relate to this. So try visualizing yourself speaking fluently in all those situations in which you have not been able to before. Try to visualize yourself speaking confidently and courageously. Unconsciously, you’re already visualizing yourself having a negative outcome in that conversation so you just flip the switch mentally. Try to focus on the positive, try to visualize a positive outcome in the conversation, and you’ll see what a tremendous difference it can make to your life.

How Visualization Can Help You Stop Stuttering
In this podcast that’s focused on learning how to stop stuttering, I discuss the process and technique of visualization as a treatment for controlling your stuttering. Visualization is the process of imagining and seeing something happen in your mind, long before anything ever happens. It is used habitually by some of the most successful athletes, businessmen, and leaders in the world. In fact, millions of people apply visualization to their daily lives without even knowing it. You have to use it intentionally for it to work in your favor, however. What you’ve got to realize is that your brain doesn’t realize that there’s a difference between what you imagine and what is real. Visualization activates something in your mind called the reticular activating system (RAS). What the RAS does is filters out things that are not a priority and are not vital to you; They are not important to your survival or your life. You know that feeling when you are driving down the road you took many times and you did not pay attention to what was happening around you because you were thinking of something else? During that time, your RAS was working for you, ready to alert you when something unusual or threatening was about to happen. You condition your RAS by visualizing and focusing on your priorities such as conversations you are going to have that day, how you are going to feel, and what are you going to say, even how you are going to dress. When the time of the meeting or conversation takes place, you will be more ready because you prepared mentally. Surely enough, if you do this over and over again and make it as real as possible as frequently as possible, you’ll find yourself reducing your stutter quite substantially without even having to make a conscious effort to think about it.

Why Your Stuttering Is A Blessing In Disguise?
Firstly, I want to take the opportunity to acknowledge and sympathize with you due to your stuttering. I understand how frustrated, fearful and anxious you can get when you Stutter. In this podcast, I will explain how your stuttering is a blessing in disguise. The goal of this is to distract you for a second and make you look at your stuttering with a different perspective. In just a few minutes, you will be able to hear some of the examples about how and why your stuttering is a blessing in disguise. My work at Lifetime Fluency gives me the privilege of speaking with and dealing with individuals that stutter (or stammer, depending on what part of the world you’re in). One common trait they all share is that they are excellent listeners. Is this a trait that you share? In today’s world, listening skills are extremely important and a powerful tool to have in your arsenal both for personal and professional reasons. Careful and active listeners bring more value to discussions and communications. Whether or not you realize, being a good listener comes in handy each and every day. The fact that you stutter or stammer has made you a better listener, but at the same time, it has likely also made you more reserved, rather than a chatterbox. Chances are you would not be the great listener that you are today if it wasn’t for your stutter. So in my opinion, this is one positive thing that has come out of your stuttering challenge. Another good thing about your stuttering is that you likely never mingled with the wrong social crowds and as a result, perhaps you never got into trouble. Instead, you may have kept a low profile, studied hard, got good grades, went to college, and a good paying job. Again, this is a good thing that’s originated due to your stuttering. Think of your stutter as a positive experience. Negative side effects will not go away until you make the decision to change them and until you take deliberate action. Even a little bit of effort can make you feel better and reduce the pain associated with your stutter. Stay positive! Try to understand & live by this quote from Ed Mylett, “things don’t happen to you, they happen for you” next time you’re thinking of negatives caused by stuttering.

When Does Stuttering Get Worse?
I created this podcast to answer a question that we get asked quite often here at Lifetime Fluency. Listen to the podcast to discover the answer to the question of: when does stuttering get worse. By the end of this podcast, what you will understand is the more you focus on how bad your stuttering is, the more you will find yourself stuttering. I discuss the principle that states; what you focus on will become your reality. This principle can be used to describe better the situations in which you stutter more than usually. You will most likely stutter more if you are continually thinking about how bad you feel when it is your time to speak or how bad of a communicator you are. The rule is, your stuttering is going to be more frequent and more intense if that’s what you are thinking about. I assure you if you start to think of yourself as a clear and concise communicator, eventually what you’re going to do is rewire your brain into believing that you are a stutter-free communicator. That’s something you’ve got to identify with… that’s who you’ve got to become. You’ve got to start thinking like that person that you’re yet to become. Every person I’ve spoken to, every person I’ve researched know and is aware of certain situations and specific scenarios that traditionally have caused them to stutter more aggressively and more intensely. During the podcast, I described those situations and scenarios in which one moment you do not have a stutter, and in the other moment, you can not say a word without stuttering. Those frustrating situations you went through at home, school, work, and public stayed in your memory as dominant thoughts. They have been preoccupying your mind causing you to feel bad the next time you are about to open your mouth. In turn, that’s going to make the next time even worse. One thing you can do to prevent the next lousy situation is to try to rewire your brain by using visualization. Try visualizing yourself in normally challenging situations but imagine yourself speaking fluently. Do the visualizations as often as you find the time. I recommend at least twice a day – In the morning and in the evening. Always visualize yourself in moving through the conversation with a positive outcome. The next time you find yourself in a similar situation in real life, odds are you’re going to believe that everything will be fine and will approach conversations and communications with much less stress, fear, and anxiety. By practicing visualization daily, you will be ready to handle different situations as you’ll feeling much more comfortable when speaking. Be ready to take action towards changing and progressing positively.

Is Stuttering And Stammering The Same Thing?
In this podcast, I answer the technical question about the difference between stuttering and stammering. There is no difference between stuttering and stammering; it is just a matter of where you live in the world and the preferred term used to describe the condition. Generally, If you are in Australia and the US, you use the term stuttering, and if you are in Britain and Europe, you will use the term stammering. Both terms refer to the same thing; the involuntary repetition of individual syllables, sounds, or specific words. In most cases, stuttering or stammering increases one’s fear of speaking produces intense anxiety levels, and also creates high levels of stress. Please be aware that there are ways to help you control and reduce your stuttering or stammering. Dealing with anxiety and fear can help to reduce your stuttering and stammering and make you a better, fear-free speaker and communicator. Make sure you take action on your stuttering because it might take you a little time until you feel relief. There are abundant resources accessible to you online all of which can help you communicate more confidently and courageously. You can be on track to speaking fluently with just a few short weeks of focused learning and effort. This will lead to a happier and more fulfilling life. Visit our ever growing resource page below!

Is It Possible To Stop Stuttering?
What I want you to take from this podcast is that overcoming stuttering is possible and that there are ways for you to stop stuttering. In this podcast, I discussed some very famous people from the entertainment industry and explained that they had a stutter at some point in their life, but as you know, they now stutter free due to the fact that they took deliberate action to overcome their speech impediment. You will learn that Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Branson, Julia Roberts, Tiger Woods, Ed Sheeran had one thing in common. That one thing was stuttering when they were younger. Now you know that those individuals went through the same pain, anxiety, embarrassment, and fear as you might be going through right now. Odds are, you would never have guessed that all the people mentioned were suffering from a stutter. Because they took action to overcome their stuttering, their careers progressed, and they do not stutter anymore. It is crucial you take action and day by day apply what is proven to stop stuttering. In my opinion, not only it is possible to stop stuttering, but it is also necessary. I say it is necessary because I get to speak with a lot of people who stutter and I know for a fact that a majority of those people are not living life to their full potential. Their speech impediment prohibits them from talking to other people because of fear, anxiety, and embarrassment, and that is what we are working now to fix. You can find so much useful information online on how to reduce or eliminate your stutter completely. You owe it to yourself, to your family, to your partner, to your friends. They all want to see the best version of you and how fluent you can become as a speaker. Imagine guys like Samuel L. Jackson, Julia Roberts or even Ed Sheeran… if they did nothing about their stuttering issues when they had them as teenagers, kids, or young adults…. do you think they would be who they are today? Rest assured that actors or actresses with a stutter are almost non-existent on television and radio. What are you missing out in your life as a result of your stuttering challenge? In this podcast, I also point out the everyday life situations in which you potentially stayed reserved and things you potentially did not do, or you did not say because of your stuttering challenge. I want to show you how Lifetime Fluency can help you overcome stuttering permanently. By doing so, you will learn the techniques and strategies to better the way you speak. Make sure you sign up for and watch the free video training program, and also download the Ebook that will be emailed to you. That will make you learn more about stuttering and push you towards you taking your first step in overcoming your stuttering. You will learn how to reduce the stress and anxiety often associated with stuttering, and take control of how you stutter.

We promise it is going to change your life for the better. Our core belief here at Lifetime Fluency is if you are someone that identifies as a stutterer and you are able to speak out loud without stuttering when you’re alone or when you’re speaking to your pet, then we see no reason why you can’t learn how to speak fluently, without a stutter, in all the situations and circumstances.

The program we have been working on is going to help you achieve just that; to transfer that style of speech, the fluent version of you, into situations where you normally stutter. If you have been following out content so far, you will know that we believe the practice is the key to success. The way you speak with a stutter is a bad habit, and bad habits die hard. It will take a bit of hard work to become completely fluent as a speaker. The program we created is the 12 Month VR Intensive. As the name implies, it is a 12-month program which incorporates a virtual reality setting and online learning platform. The program is also there to keep you accountable every single day to help you get the results. You will get a virtual reality headset and a downloadable app for iOS and Android. Every day you will enter the virtual world where you will speak in a variety of scenarios; one-on-one, one-to-many, conference style, sales meetings, classroom style, on a stage and much more. We believe that success comes down to consistency and creating good habits.

You will also be more courageous and your life will improve across all boards. Financially you will be more successful and emotionally you will be stronger. The ripple effects are going to be tremendous to you, so go ahead and get started. We look forward to seeing you in the program starting in just a couple of weeks.

Celebrities Who Stutter
You may or may not know this, but there are countless famous people and celebrities that used to stutter… And some still do! In this podcast, I will talk about some of the famous people and celebrities who stutter or used to stutter and have since stopped. I will also discuss what you can do about your own stutter if you have one. While creating this podcast, I had you in the forefront of my mind because odds are, you stutter. More importantly – and this is why you’re watching this video – you want to do something about your stutter! Statistically speaking, one in a hundred people across the globe struggle with stuttering (or stammering, depending on where you are in the world!). You might not personally know any people that stutter, but I am sure that you have come across plenty of famous people and celebrities that had struggled with this problem. The key here, however, is that they did something about there Stuttering challenges. Tiger Woods, Julia Roberts, Eric Roberts, Emily Blunt, Tim Gunn, Ed Sheeran, Former CEO of GE Jack Welch; modern-day celebrities Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Ronald Akison, and even former vice president Joe Biden…. They ALL had a Stutter! At some point in their lives, all these individuals had a stutter, and they went out, took action, and they are now stutter-free, living the dream life of many! One of the quickest ways to succeed in any endeavor in life is to model someone that’s already done what you want to do. This applies in business and finance, for instance, as much as it does with learning how to stop stuttering! Once you see the proof – that overcoming your stutter is possible – and you see how other people have done so already; I ask you… why can’t you do the same? To overcome your stuttering, you will need to gain some information about strategies and techniques. The Internet is full of free material you can learn from so I would start there. A most important step would be Taking Action and applying what you learned. At Lifetime Fluency we have created a number of free ebooks, video training courses, and workbooks which you can access on demand so you can start to learn straight away, and apply what you’ve learned immediately. There are various techniques we teach to help individuals control and reduce their stuttering. With us, you can learn how to control – and eventually stop – your stutter and not let it be the weight on your shoulders it has been so far in your life. All the mentioned individuals would not be where they are today if they didn’t decide at some point in their life to take action about their speaking challenge. You must learn how to do the same and you must learn to stop stuttering. Once you get a feel for some techniques we teach, and you start speaking clearer without anxiety or fear, you will do whatever is necessary to never revert back to stuttering again!
