Feeling anxious in front of a crowd

If you’re anxious, you’re probably wondering how it’s going to turn out. Will you remember what to say? Will you say something stupid? Will you make yourself look bad? The irony is that the more time you spend worrying about those things the less time you’re spending on something productive. That worry isn’t productive. And because you’re not keeping your eye on the prize, you’re steering yourself away from the good you could do for this audience and creating high anxiety for yourself.

If you’ll stop worrying about doing a good job and concentrate on delivering something useful to your audience, you’re much more likely to connect with them and get the desired outcome.

It’s not about you. Don’t make about you. Let go of the anxiety. Make everybody happy.
