Being nervous

One problem most people have is starting being nervous when they have to do something important. This happens most of the time if they do it for the first time or if they think they aren’t as good as they should be.

Most times being nervous is something counterproductive. This happens when it’s fear related. The fear to fail. The fear to make a fool out of yourself in front of other people. The fear of critics. The fear of change. This is the moment when you need to step up and face your fears. Focus on giving the best performance you can. Create a mindset based on facing fear and you’ll get past it. With experience, exercise and self control you will be able to master these fears.

But being nervous can also be positive. It shows that you really care. That you are doing something meaningful. There is no way to get over this. But you shouldn’t even try. You should try to expose yourself to it as much as you can. Do things that scare you. Do the things that are important to you.

If you are not nervous about doing it, then it’s not going to be memorable.
