Stand in front of mirror try challenging yourself. Speak or rehearse in front of yourself and you’ll see the rise in your performance.
Stage fright is all in the mind always keep yourself motivating so that you never lose confidence while performing. Never consider your failure to be the reason of your disappointment. Stop thinking ‘ that I wouldn’t be able to do this’ or ‘ what people will think’ instead start thinking ‘ you can do this’ or ‘ what if I am great at this?’. Talk positive so you stay optimistic.
Visualize the output within your mind. Think the kind of warmth, confidence and response you’ll receive after giving a good performance. This will help you to boost your performance. The more you imagine being great, the more the chances of a good performance will increase.
Instead of discouraging and cursing yourself for a bad performance try learning where you lacked. And if any sort of technical issue arises while you are performing don’t panic stay calm the technical team is more stressed out than you. Just try to cover it if it is possible for you.
Try to be punctual. If you’ll come early you will get some time to rehearse and therefore your performance will automatically be the good one. And if you’ll come late you will be stressed and you’ll rush while performing. So try to be on time.
