It was exciting in the beginning! It was an opportunity of a lifetime. You were asked to speak at a company event in front of your team. Or you were selected as a panelist. You were asked to sing the national anthem. Or you were selected to the homecoming court. It is an honor! It’s awesome.
No you are overwhelmed with nervousness. It’s the day of the event and you are not sure how it will go. You might even start thinking of how it will go wrong.
In these moments, do these simple things…
And really take it in. Enjoy it as best you can.
There are not THAT many of these moments in life. Do your best. Forget the rest.
Do your best to have fun with it. This moment WILL go fast like a roller coaster. Whether you enjoy the actual moment or not…you want to remember it well.
