Overcoming Stage Fright

Overcoming stage fright is possible.  And it doesn’t matter if you’re speaking, singing, or playing an instrument.  I do all three.  I know people – intelligent people – who simply force their way through stage fright because they have to get stuff done.

I used to be that way too.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I remember when I was a kid.  My mom would tell me to pretend I was at home just talking to her or to her and my grandma.

That only worked for me when I wasn’t really nervous in the first place.

Later I used a disassociation technique to get rid of stage fright.  I’d stand up and bounce on my heels and pretend I was leaving that scared part of me behind, then step forward and start to talk.

Then I’d imagine that “part” I left behind catching up with my body once I started speaking.

That was fine until I forgot what I wanted to say next…

Or until I made a mistake.

Then things just seemed to go all to crap.

One of the things that will help you with stage fright is to just allow yourself the freedom to make mistakes.

Even professionals make mistakes.

They’ve just got so much experience that they cover it well.

I know a really good trumpet player who does grace notes and slurs and runs on the trumpet.

I was surprised when he told me he makes mistakes and just covers them up quickly.

My fingers used to literally freeze up on me and begin to shake when I had to play piano in public.

Then when I made a mistake, it just got worse, and I’d sit there trying to figure out the mistake.

By then the song was several measures past that point, and I was completely lost.

So I had to learn to just let go of the mistakes and keep going.

One of the symptoms of stage fright when speaking is to do the speech you practiced in half the time you timed it at during practice (or less!).

That used to frustrate me to no end!

I’d plan something that was supposed to take 30 minutes to speak on, and when I’d get up to speak, I’d be almost completely finished in 12-15 minutes.

I knew if I was going to keep speaking, I’d have to get a grip on my stage fright nerves.

One thing that really helped me was getting more experience.

The more you do something, the more confident and the more competent you become.

I needed something extra, though.

My friend who has been a hypnotist for over 40 years, has helped hundreds of people in sports peak performance, and has studied NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) taught me something that works real well for overcoming stage fright.

I wrote it up in a pdf and included step by step instructions for simple yet effective technique to help you get over your stage fright.
