  • 🎤 I was interviewed on the Full Production podcast earlier this week and the host, @finny_85 asked me if I ever get nervous before presenting a workshop, or giving a speech.

My response. “Of course!l”

If you change up the audience, the content, the environment - I feel the oscillating flutter of nerves/excitement/nerves/excitement/NERVES!

Weirdly, I get more nervous if I DON’T feel the nerves.

If it feels like things are on autopilot, I get this gnawing feeling. Why am I not nervous? Does this mean I’m not learning? Or that I’ve stopped caring? What going on here?! So, I loved hanging with Fearless Girl on my recent trip to NYC. 
I love this kid, staring down the activities on Wall Street.

She’s killer confident with her shoulders back, head defiantly up and eyes brazenly looking ahead.

That’s the pose I put on before I walk up in front of an audience, but those flutters are still well and truly alive. 
Did you know that we’re born with only two innate fears? 
1. The fear of falling 
2. The fear of loud sounds.

We develop fears as we continue with life.  Fear protects us.

Does it though? 
One of my fave, cliche quotes that I hold nice and tight whenever I’m in a new situation is this one: “Magic happens outside of your comfort zone.” I don’t believe phrases like ‘Face your fears!’ are terribly either. 
I like simple, practical approaches like working out ‘If / Then’ statements. Often, when we brainstorm ‘If/then’ we think of the worst case scenarios. 
When I thought about leaving my job, the immediate fear was homelessness. Irrational, but my brain did that to protect me. 
When you start documenting all the different scenarios, and workarounds, and chunk it down to actions you can take, it seems less and less fearful. 
You get to an inflection point where it makes sense to ‘do the thing’. Where taking the leap is actually a safer and better option than inaction.
