Embrace Nervous

If you asked most people if they like being nervous, they'd say no.

And sometimes, no question about it, being nervous is terrible because there's something very serious on the line, like the results of a medical test.

But most of the time, nervousness is a good thing and it should be embraced. It's energy to harness.

That's the thing - you have to decide to harness it, instead of letting it hose you.

I wake up nervous every morning.

It's a combination of excitement, passion, and, yes, fear. I think anyone who's ambitious carries a little fear around with them - the fear of losing what you've built for yourself.

That fear fuels your ambition to build even more.

Sandy Koufax once said: "Sometimes the most terrified people do the best work." He would have known, too; did you know he had a fear of crowds?

Wayne Gretzky spoke of nervousness in a similar way. "A fear of failure drives the great athletes," he said. The Great One was driven by a fear of losing his greatness. It spurred him to build on it.

When you wake up, you can't be passive about the day's possibilities.

The day owes you nothing.

You owe the day.

You owe the day effort.

Your nervousness is the energy you're going to burn in that effort.

So embrace that nervousness, that energy.

Love it. Harness it.

And unleash it on the unsuspecting day!

If you can bring yourself to do this, it won't eliminate your nerves. We were meant to be nervous.

But I promise you this - it will change the way you feel about nervousness.

Eventually you'll learn that nervousness is a good feeling.

As long as you make use of it.

  • Hello everyone, I am from Wembley, Britain. I want to write this testimony to tell others and thank Dr. Odunga for what he has done for me. The first 12 years of my marriage I had 5 miscarriages and I was called all sorts of names by my mother-in-law and this made my marriage life very hectic and a burden of sorrow. I contacted Dr. Odunga for help and I will say that he is a very strong and honest man and he indeed helped me solve my problem. I saw his email in a testimony and I contacted him, little did I know it would be the end of all my problems. After 2 days of contact, I received a fertility herb and he told me to use it. The herb worked and my husband even loved me more and bought me expensive things. One afternoon, I went to a nearby hospital and came back home with the positive result of my pregnancy and after 9 months I gave birth to a baby boy. Ever since I contacted Dr. Odunga, my story has been different. I have 3 children at present and I am very happy in my marriage. Please, contact him at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats App him +2348167159012 to help you too
