Well, many times this trigger works at a particular point of time in public speaking which has a traumatic incident related to it in your subconscious memory.
Apart from this, you may select a theme that motivates you to deliver a speech and also imagine the extraordinary feeling that warms your body, once you deliver a great speech due to the applause by the audience.
Our mind tries to overcome this fear of public speaking by fight, freeze and flight response due to adrenalin rush which hampers the effectiveness of our public speaking.
