Harness the power of pretend

Practice the art of ‘if you don’t know it, pretend you do,’ either with friends or by recording yourself. Launch yourself into a seminar about a topic that you know nothing about. The point is not to be correct; it’s to practice speaking authoritatively. That way, when you speak about something you do know about, you’ll realize you know more than you give yourself credit for and be comfortable with your authoritative tone.
