I saw a Facebook thread the other day started by someone who found himself doing some public speaking for the first time and had quite a few nerves about it.
Nothing wrong with that. Everyone feels some nerves (even seasoned professionals) just before walking onstage.
But it reminded me of a little belief trick that was shown to me by a sports psychologist called Derek Ross just before I was about to address the biggest audience I had encountered.
I decided to record this short video explaining what he did. Maybe it will help you…
