Why is it that I have a great talent but I can't perform before audience just because of fear?
Updated: Jul 14
You’ve heard it already right?- all the well meaning advice:
Standing before a crowd is a talent in itself, and not all people have it
Stage fright is normal
You gotta practice, practice, practice
Its human nature
& many more
There one thing causing your fear.
And that one thing is
Don’t believe me? Try this
Close your eyes and imagine you’re about to step-up on stage
Notice the feelings of fear coming up for you. Get in touch with them
Notice the thoughts that are coming up for you, related to that feeling of fear
Write down those thoughts
The thoughts will be around the lines of: I cant do this, I’m going to mess up, What are people going to say about me, I better get this right?
And what do these thoughts point to? You got it?
BELIEFS, SPECIFICALLY LIMITING BELIEFS
Thought: I can’t do this >> Belief: I’m not capable; I’m not good enough
Thought: I’m going to mess up >> Belief: Mistakes and Failures Are Bad
Thought: What are people going to say about me >> What makes me good enough is having people think well of me
Thought: I better get this right >> The way to survive is to do things perfectly
Try the above exercise out for yourself
First step is to find the beliefs, the next step is to eliminate them
So what beliefs are in your way? What beliefs are causing your fear?
Until next time,
