Do you ever get nervous? sweaty palms? washing machine tummy?
we all get nervous, right! but we all handle it differently.
Some it can make courageous and others it can turn cowardly.
when i had job interviews, speaking events or performing to crowds my nerves used to consume me until i felt paralysed with the emotion and my mouth would become dry and my voice would croak.
But then i discovered a way to turn nerves into excitement.
when i get nervous now i make sure that i become BIGGER than the nerves. How? i do something that takes over the the nerves. For instance i might let out a loud roar or i might jump up and down and shake the nerves out. Then as i feel the energy i let myself enjoy it and i just become happier. It's sounds crazy right! BUT it does work because i basically take the bad energy i am feeling and turn it into positive energy.
Now my style would probably not work for most but it is all about how you respond to the emotion, not how the emotion makes you feel. You can turn negative energy into positive by managing your pyschology.
I have heard for some people what they find works is talking loudly more excitedly and passionately to become bigger than the nerves.
so that is my tip for turning nerves into excitement
