How do you handle your nerves?1102

Forum Owner Belew private msg quote post Address this user
I don't want to admit to getting nervous. I have been doing 'this' too long. Whatever 'this' is for you.

I do get eager. I get pumped. I really get into my talks.

I have one coming up today in a few hours. I have 45 mins to deliver in smth I have been thinking on for 2+ months

maybe a better question than how do you handle your nerves is to ask how do you prepare and perform in high risk/high takeaway settings?

It's energy - aikido taught me how energy is neither "good" nor "bad".. just energy. Something to be harnessed.

We're taught to tense up.. to be serious.. to achieve.

Instead a sense of play and curiosity puts us in a state that allows us not only to be at our best - flow - we do better. Much better than we can ever imagine.

There have been many times when I read or see myself dancing afterwards and wonder who was that guy?

@jycmba

I like the play and curiosity. I wish I had read that this morning before my talk.
