Being nervous can cripple and paralyze us from doing the things we really want to do. I know. I’ve been there over and over again, whether it being having to speak in public, sing a solo, or even launching into this blog.
I have learned that preparation to do the task, feeling confident in what I’ve prepared, and prayer to God helps me to do it regardless of the nerves.
Will nerves still grip me? Yes, sometimes, but I have to shake it off and keep moving. If I don’t I will remain stuck, and won’t achieve all that God may have for me.
So, shake it off! Or like Oprah says – “Do it afraid!”
