Refuse to be nervous

I just read yet another article that says EVERYBODY is nervous so don’t worry about it. And it goes on to make the same old points about it giving energy and life to your presentation.

I don’t disagree that that can be the case. But, if you can get the same result without being nervous, why wouldn’t you want to do that?
When you’re nervous, you’re pretty much thinking about yourself in one way or another. On the other hand, when you think about sharing your subject with your audience thinking about how it can help them, you’re not thinking about yourself. And there goes the nervousness.

The energy and life come from your caring about your subject and your audience. No need to be nervous.
