I have this thing called the “spotlight effect”. Here’s how I’m gonna beat it…
So I decided to put a challenge to myself – a 30-day challenge to be exact.
I have this thing called the “spotlight effect“.
Whenever I feel I’m the center of attention, I get super nervous and stutter badly. It’s not just big crowds but small groups also, like 3+ people.
It’s been something I’ve been telling myself to sort out, but I’ve never done anything about it.
I’ll give you an example of what happens when I get nervous.
Talking one-on-one with my mentor is fine. But the other day, I had a meeting with my mentor and two of his business partners (a meeting with four people). They asked me a question and I got super nervous and just stuttered a lot. I probably said the word “right” like 20 times in the space of a minute.
“It’s cool, right?”
“I think we should do this, right?”.
“Like this, right?”
Now, I’m tired of being all talk.
I wanna be a guy that takes action.
Even one of my mentors called me out on it:
