Getting Over Yourself

“Nothing you say is gonna bring me down”

At the gym they were playing, “Shut up, shut up, shut up, . . . nothing you say . . . is gonna bring me down.”

That’s a good message to yourself when you’re going to give a speech–or whenever you’re in a situation that has the potential for making you uncomfortable or self-conscious. Almost always, it’s what we’re saying to ourselves that causes the problem.

What will they think about me? What if I don’t look or sound good? What if I say the wrong thing?

This is the one place your mother won’t mind if you say, “shut up.” Because you’re saying it to the noise that gets in the way and keeps you from being your best self. Be firm: “Nothing you say is gonna bring me down.”
