Some things are daunting. You are not sure where to start. You may fear failing. In short, you can be nervous. Being nervous is not a bad thing: it can drive us to do better. It’s a natural reaction to challenging situations, or to situations that we don’t want to face. It’s like love or hate. Not always easy to deal with, but part of the experience that makes us who we are.
Often we try to put people at ease, to make things easy, but we shouldn’t underestimate the power of nerves. It’s nervous energy that can cause a singer to excel, that can help you pass an exam, that can drive a climber to the summit. Think about when you were last nervous and what you achieved at a result. Could you have done it without the nerves?
