How-To: Shake Nerves Before Important Game

Attending conferences and sporting events brings a surprise; Speakers and elite athletes often have their initial “yips” and unusual slips: nerves are often noticeable in the light of day.

This is a great encouragement to us mere mortals. If the stars are fighting nerves, we also have a limitation agency. But this limitation of the sympathetic nervous system is behaviorally adjusted by acting optimistically at the moment of the pressure, modifying the nervous response via the parasympathetic nervous system.

These two branches of the autonomic nervous system are working opposite each other. Just as one branch seems to act against us, the other works for us, to calm us when we answer with a courageous calm.

All this means that we can reverse our nerves. We can transform the feeling of being overwhelmed into a sense of quick adaptation and reassuring adaptation.


The worst of the nerves is self-awareness. However, there is a positive side to our nerves. When our minds ignore the negative balance, the evidence of our nerves, we can extract enormous power from nervousness, but this involves a mixture of brutal honesty in the present moment and courageous temperament.

Obviously, it takes a lot of courage to ignore the negative balance sheet: the imminence of sweating, shame with a red face, trembling and stuttering. The sooner we take control, the better.

By focusing on what we are looking for and dividing the task into smaller pieces, and with due diligence, we break our nerves. Such honesty requires courage. If we want to do that and do our best, we have to take the risk. Audacity has dominion over her.

The work we do behind the scenes to develop reliable integrity is an important part of our sincere work.

This is a difficult work. It’s basically about recognizing all our hidden weaknesses; Know, as much as possible, all our vulnerabilities. Because we all have such flaws, ours are perfectly acceptable if, above all, we can accept them.

If we are our worst judge, no support will put us on the sidelines. The performance failures will be many because we expect to fail.

On the other hand, however, if we take our weak points with calm, we can compensate them, again, by being honest about them from the inside. In this way, when we fail in our performance, we adjust easily. We are not afraid because we have no reason to hide information about ourselves. Small mistakes are easily forgivable.

The nerves go beyond us if we do not mount the defence. But when we calmly go through our nerves, we find that our honesty and courage are blessed.
