Do you remember the first time you stepped up to a microphone? Butterflies? Nervous? Sure. If you weren’t you wouldn’t be human. But, I’m guessing for most of us, that first time came at an age when we knew why we were nervous. We were afraid of making a mistake.
But when you’re younger, much younger, that fear doesn’t seem to be such an overpowering anxiety. When you’re younger and you get such an opportunity, fear seems to be replaced by excitement and enthusiasm. And a Big smile when you enjoy your ‘moment’.
When you step up to the mic today do you still have that excitement and enthusiasm like it’s your first time, or are you filled with nervous anxiety? Do you need a reminder what that youthful innocence and excitement looks like? Watch this video and you’ll see it…along with a lot of smiles, including your own.
