A few weeks ago, I finally played my first gig – something I’ve been saying I would do for well over a year now!
I admit, I was very nervous before I did it. But I did. I faced my fear. My fear of it going wrong. My fear of performing in front of people. My fear of feeling like a bad singer.
It wasn’t perfect. I missed a few notes, but laughed at myself along the way. I actually ‘enjoyed’ the pressure once I got going. My Lizard Brain realised that it wasn’t so bad after all.
It wasn’t perfect. But our work never is and that’s okay. We don’t need to be perfect. We just need to strive for better.
When was the last time you faced one of your fears?
