I have a feeling someone reading this has been nervous before a competition, test, lecture or asking someone out on a date.
Most people feel that being nervous is bad.
Being nervous is good. It means you are about to do something important.
Winners and losers feel the same feelings.
The greatest athletes in the world get nervous, so it’s okay if you do.
The difference is, you don’t have to ACT nervous.
I have spent time with many professional athletes and I always ask them if they get nervous.
They all say yes.
So what do they do?
They take a deep breath, tell themselves that they’ve been in this situation before and then go and kick butt.
I work one-on-one with athletes, musicians, business professionals and students and I have them do the same thing.
Because it works.
