When you are under it you can’t even see the first row! Essentially facing blankness. Being hyper-aware that every word, twitch and look is being judged.
The modern spotlight has shifted to our devices. As you go live, hit record or click broadcast. Your stage-fear erupts, heartbeats fasten, breathing becomes shallow, inner critic starts rumbling and your mind is going puff!
Still, you can’t see the audience. At most, you can watch yourself!
It’s as if you are speaking to a mirror, but feel that your world is watching you! (it is!)
Instead of shying away, embrace it. It’s OK to goof up, technology is fickle and we get it.
Can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
Go, go, go!
