Fight the Fright

Recently, I was asked by Kim if I get nervous before I perform, which I told her yes. Then she presides to ask what do I overcome the nervousness. My simple and short answer was pray. I went on to explain that I don’t pray the nerves away, rather I say a prayer of appreciation for the great performance I’m about to give and positive impact it will have on the lives of the audience.

I do this because the thoughts of a successful outcome ease my fears and energize me to give a great performance. People tend to focus on the big “what if.” What if I mess up? Well you won’t know until it happens, and by focusing on it now, right before you perform, will make you more nervous and will increase the chances that you will mess up.

My advice for nervousness before any kind of performance is to focus on the outcome you want and believe it will happen. Personally, my prayer of gratitude really brings it home and makes me believe that I will provide a great experience no matter what happens on the stage.
