Have you ever experienced the feeling of going into panic mode before you go on a stage to deliver a presentation or before an important meeting of yours?
Your hands begin to shake or sweat, your heart is pounding, you feel as if your mind is going blank and you may even feel a little bit nauseous or at least experience butterflies in your stomach. And it’s not just before the big moment that you feel that your courage is abandoning you. You felt exactly the same the night before while preparing, or even two months ago when you agreed to give that presentation.
Then comes the little voice in your head asking you to ‘calm down’ and this is the moment when planet earth seems to migrate away from your feet.
