What you gonna do now? Keep talking?
What about walking?
Are your shoes tied? What’s happening? Did you get in shape before the match? What about drinking your water? Did you lift your weights? Are all of your tools prepared? Did you remember to bring your wallet? Your handkerchief? What about any magic beads?
I’m asking these questions cause I wanna make sure you’re prepared. Consider me the performance coach. Are you ready for the performance? Are you gonna get on stage and run away OR are you show everybody that paid a ticket they’re gonna get their monies worth?
You ain’t gonna let them down. You have bought into the lightning and now you’re on fire!
But don’t burn too much, otherwise, you’re gonna suffocate everyone in the room! 😀
Fire burns quickly and smoke sends the signal to the alarm.
Your burning is largely due to nerves.
So you feel nervous?
Ever paid for something with the expectation that it was gonna show you out? When you couldn’t look forwards to eating it because you knew it was gonna rock your world!? Remember tasting it and getting disappointed? Being let down – disturbs the peace but everything is still in harmony when you believe in your work.
We all got faults we can work out on but to get bummed out is a part of the process.
HOWEVER // Make it plain. Expect the sudden interruptions of life and follow the signs. Get there. Polish your breaks. Even when you feel you are about to skew away from the path.
Are you afraid people might see you stumble? Maybe you gonna fall on your ass and embarrass yourself? Well, that’s awkward picking yourself back up right after you tripped on a non-existent banana.
You ain’t the only one tripping, tho.
The performance is the trip itself.
