How are great public performers able to perform so well when it really matters? 🏀
They find ways to take the pressure off themselves, freeing them to be at their best.
Don’t take my word for it, here’s Lebron James, one of the greatest NBA players of all time. 🏀
‘There’s a lot of pressure put on me, but I don’t put a lot of pressure on myself. I feel if I play my game, it will take care of itself.’
Working as an actor, I saw firsthand how every individual found ways to do the same thing. Because the truth is, human beings don’t perform at our peak when we pile the stakes too high.
It’s an imperfect art, but learning how to take pressure off of yourself before a public speaking event is not only key to success, but enjoying it. 🏀
