How to Overcome Stage Fear

Stage Fear - Are you someone who stands mute at parties or even avoids them completely? Do you hate the idea of speaking in small groups, let alone in front of a big crowd... Then this article contains some information you will definitely want to know about.

Social anxiety, with its emotional and physical symptoms that hit you like a freight train, is one of the most frustrating challenges we can face in our lives.

But you can break free from the prison of shyness, insecurity, and self consciousness. And today, I'd like to share five easy things you can do right now to stop your anxiety from taking you over and taking you down.

Accept the fact not everyone will like you. You can be the nicest, most engaging, funniest, attractive person in the world. But not everyone is going to be your fan. As unbelievable as that seems - it's a fact. Get used to it. With billions of people on this planet it's a statistical certainty that at some point in your life you're going to meet someone that just doesn't like you. 99.9% of the time, this happens not because of something you said or did. It's just.... a clash of personalities, chemical reaction. Or they don't like your look. Nothing personal.

Concentrate on attracting kind, caring and supportive people into your life. Positive, encouraging people build your self esteem. They help you feel good about yourself. They're happy when you succeed, and help you when you're down. Before you know It., you'll find it a lot easier to express your own needs and desires-because you'll be met with support, not negativity.

Stop trying to speak approval. This is a behavior that's rooted in us from when we're kids. We want to please mommy, daddy, and teachers. But people who become permanent approval-seekers do it at the expense of their own innate feeling and desires. Remember, you have more important things to do than worry about what people think of you. When you stop seeking approval from others and start expressing the real "you," people will begin to see you as confident and self-assured. Someone they'll want to be around.

Develop a sense of humor if you don't have it. Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone. When you have a sense of humor and see the fun in life rather than dark clouds, you become like a magnet- attracting people who actually want to meet and get to know you.

Make your own way in life. Studies show that people who suffer from anxiety are often "followers." Go with the flow... It's easier this way ... can't we all get along... But when you replace fear and insecurity with composure and confidence, you'll be able to tell the difference between people who can be trusted and those who can't and learn a lot about other people - just by watching and listening. Don't you think you deserve to get what you want out of life? Follow your dreams and passions-despite what others think? Might sound though to do... But when you recondition your brain to embrace confidence, encouragement and self- empowerment, it's so much easier to claim the kind of life you want.
