Welcome to, I’m Robert Estrin. The subject today is about easing performance anxiety by avoiding negative self-talk. You believe what you say! I’ve seen this happen so many times with performers. It’s not just in music, it’s in everything in life. Whether it’s sports, interviews, public speaking, and more. You believe what you say in your head to yourself. So if you tell yourself you’re going to bomb a performance, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, because you believe what you’ve told yourself. You really have to be careful what you say in your head before and during a performance.
