~ Tim Daggett, Olympic gymnastics commentator, referring to gymnast Aly Raisman
How do you label your public speaking nervousness? Do you say, "I hate public speaking?" Do you tell yourself you shouldn't be anxious and then feel disappointed when you can't make the jitters go away?
How about taking that adrenaline rush and turning it around?
How about saying to yourself, "I'm excited to have the opportunity to share my message with this audience?"
How about finding ways to relax your body and ground yourself so that your jitters become more manageable?
And then, how about using that remaining adrenaline to give the audience the best, most energetic and passionate, version of YOU?
