Just imagine yourself standing in front of thousands of people in a live audience. And then add the hundreds of thousands, or maybe millions, watching on TV.
Would you feel fear? Would you be able to perform? How about a recovery after you stumble?

Wow….just imagine doing that at 9 years old like Malaki Paul!
An interesting thing that this video demonstrates is how much the audience is pulling for Malaki.
In fact, everyone wants him to succeed. You can see it in their faces….the compassion that they feel for him and the greatness that they see within him.
Believe it or not, that’s how your crowd sees you as well. They are pulling for you and want the best for you.
FEAR steps into all of our lives sometimes. It’s no different for seasoned veterans and world-renowned performers. They all still experience fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of not being good enough.
The difference is that they have learned to deal with the fear. They learned that no matter how much they would like to let the fear overtake them, the reward for breaking through and seizing opportunity is where their most energized life resides.
I know from my own experience that I still get butterflies when I step in front of a room to do a presentation. I still feel that twinge of second-guessing and hoping that it will work out ok. And you know what? It does. It always does.
When you decide to take a step out on faith and put it all on the line, the people around you respect and admire your courage and are naturally pulled in to become your cheering section.
That’s the reward for making a decision for success and trusting in yourself.
So just get out there and do it!

Right on! After 32+ yesrs in sales, I admire the spirit, the recovery, and the outstanding performance–and he’s only 9 years old. Wow!
Thanks for sending this—

You bet Ted! I really was amazed when I saw how good that little guy was, especially right after breaking down in front of the crowd. It’s a great lesson for all of us to push on through the tough times. Thanks a bunch for the comment!
