If You Fear Public Speaking,The Time is “Now,” Not “When”
“Fear is excitement without the breath” Fritz Perls
I gave him plenty of tools to help him prepare and get as comfortable as possible, but the truth is you still need to be brave enough to take the first step.
There will never be the PERFECT time or the perfect audience.
You Will Never Be More Ready Than Now
You will never be braver than in this moment.
If you are waiting for when you stop being afraid, you will be waiting forever. The fear will never go away. The flutter in your stomach, the quickening of your breath: It never disappears.
If you are waiting to shine brighter or to know all there is to know or to find someone who can make you do it… you won’t. Not until you leap.
And leap again. And again.
Then you will shine. And then you will realize you are that someone who steps out of their comfort zone and chooses to be fearless.
Your Courage Comes After The Leap
Confidence comes in knowing you took the risk.
Yes, it will be hard.
Yes, it will be terrifying.
Yes, it may not work out as you expected.
And yet it will be totally and completely worth it.
Because you will finally understand that you have everything you need in this moment now.
Because you will have trusted yourself and taken a calculated risk.
Because you will have dared greatly.
Because you will have stopped trying to play it safe.
Safety Is An Illusion
An excuse for staying small.
So stop waiting…
The time is “now,” not “when”.
