“Ugh! Why am I still so nervous?! Why won’t those go away?!” Ummmm, well, because you are human and you care about what you are doing so they will probably never go away.
But I have good news: You don’t need them to go away! If fact, with the right perspective you will see they are actually good and meant to help you!
At some point you associated the nervous feeling with something bad. But what if it doesn’t mean that at all? What if it just means your body is helping you be energized for whatever come next? Because if it’s a roller coaster, you don’t wish those nerves away or make it mean bad things are coming. But if it’s a dance competition, suddenly we make it mean we are in some kind of danger and our fight or flight system gets activated.
The reality is that you WILL feel it, but then you get to decide for yourself what it means.
In this episode I help you out by giving you a positive association for the sensations you feel so you need not fear your own system. Ain’t nobody got time to fight or resist yourself, so let’s teach those butterflies how to fly in formation!
