“Winners and losers have the same feelings, they just take different action.”
-Rob Gilbert

Well, it’s Saturday morning at 9:32am and in about 28 minutes I will be speaking to the Ferris State Professional Tennis Management students, staff, alumni, and prospective students.

I’m nervous.

But I get nervous before every talk, so I’m fine with it. It’s okay to be nervous, as long as you don’t look or act nervous. Winners get nervous too, but they don’t let it paralyze them. Losers do.

So before a match, musical performance, or presentation before your class or co-workers, remember it’s alright to be nervous. Someone once told me, “If you’re not nervous, you’re not ready.”

Thanks for reading.
