You are fine the way you are



I can recall given a talk to an entire school. Must have been hundreds in the audience.


In all honestly I didn’t care about the ‘size’ of the audience.


You know why?


I’d practiced being on stage so many times I was not that phased.


Does not mean I don’t get the jitters that make me wanna moon walk. Of course I do, sometimes.


But the feelings or rather my perception of the feelings have just got better over time.


I used to perceive the feeling of nerves as not being capable and that would be part of a spiral.


Now, I figure it’s just part of the deal and will pass.


I’ll throw out every trick I know before hand e.g. deep breathing, mental rehearsal, you name it…but I’ve learnt not to try and do a magic trick on my feelings.


I just trust that when I’m up I’ll know what to say…and I do.


I’m focused more on what I’m there to share I’ll be alright.


And guess what?


I have been.


No big deal really.


Practice, own, practice, own, practice, own.


You’ll always get better.


You are fine just the way you are.


With ARETE,


Sean
