Overcoming Stage Fright (By Accident)
I do not know where this crippling stage fright came from, but it has plagued me since I was a child. Actually, I do know where it came from. Just like my sales skills were passed on to me by my father, his predilection to being anti-social was also passed on to me. The stage fright comes naturally.
As a kid, I avoided giving speeches at all costs. I never tried out for a play or did anything that required an audience. I learned to live with the stage fright (or around it really) as best I could.
Fast forward to senior year at Eastern Michigan University. I had to take a course titled “Novels” to graduate. I had already dropped it once based on the day one scare tactics of the professor. The final grade was based upon writing a sample chapter of a novel. This chapter would be read aloud by my classmates who would then proceed to critique the work. Stage fright on steroids! Fight or flight kicked in, and I was out of there.
This week, the fellas help you chart your course for making Q2, your best quarter this year. Let’s make a plan and stick with it.
Scott and Jon also extoll the virtues of getting off your butt and taking action. Do I smell a theme?
