Thank you so much for this. It's comforting to know that you still have reactions before you get up in front of people. I've actually asked many different types of presenters and most of them say they still get nervous before hand.
Wow, I wouldn't know what to do if I were in that situation! I'm afraid that if something like that happened to me, where I opened my mouth and nothing came out, that I'd just lose it all together and have to walk off completely - or vomit and cry. Though I have had the experience of getting more comfortable, and even enjoying being up there as I go along.
i love your perspective on being a servant as a teacher. It's 100% true! For whatever reason my mind keeps saying "who are you to teach". I have trouble remembering that am the light and to just be the light. I throw a "how - how do i be the light?!" And that just gets in the way bc there is no how!
I guess what I'm terrified of is sounding stupid, sounding like I don't know what I'm talking about or sounding lost. I'm afraid that what I have to teach isn't good enough even though my yoga practice saved my life. I'm afraid to make a mistake, afraid of being judged, and ultimately being viewed as bad at teaching. Really being viewed as bad in general...
This information is so helpful to me. Thank you for taking the time to respond ??❤️
