In the past I was so pre-occupied with myself, my performance and me, me, me… Resulting in a lot of nervousness and anxiety.
On this wedding day though, a simple mindset shift made performing way more easy for me to do. Here, I tried to drop my ‘self’ and focus all of my attention on the audience and their experience.
Today, I focus on the possible gift of music and presence.
Everything that is bigger than my ‘self’.
That’s a whole other game we’re playing here, right?
Because the ‘little me’ and the story he tells himself are not that important.
And definitely not true either.
Use this mindset shift
This mindset is gold, not only for a concert on a wedding, but also:
-While wanting to give the most impactful speech at work
-To elevate positive emotion in conversation with your collegues or boss
-For living in true leadership, with vulnerability and a true ‘us’-mentality
Here’s a little something for you:
Where in your life are you playing small because of your ‘little me’ and the thoughts it tells you (and you believe)?
What would your life look like if you could observe and feel those sticky icky negative feelings and breathe through them… And then do the ‘thing’ anyway?
