Chamber Chatter radio show airing on WCHE 1520 AM, and available to stream below, focuses on a range of topics to help businesses large and small realign to compete in today’s complex economy. On Thursday, April 14, Mark Schulman was a guest on the show discussing how to conquer life’s stage fright and achieve confident peak performance in your life.
Mark explains that the biggest opportunities in life can come from the biggest failures. Without even realizing, how you choose to deal with failure and the decisions you make from that point on, can change the course of your life.
In Mark’s research for his new book, Conquering Life’s Stage Fright: Three Steps to Top Performance, he realized many people experience anxiety when tackling large projects. Mark also discovered that there is a consistency that helps successful people overcome their fears. Simply, Mark defines it as the three C’s: Clarity, Capability and Confidence.
- Clarity- Identify your goal to make it clear for yourself.
- Capability- Once your goal has been established, you must become proficient in the skills and expertise to acquire your goals.
- Confidence- As you succeed with your skills, naturally, you will gain confidence.
Mark advises that you should be clear about what you want and how you are going to get there. It is always important to be present and work towards a goal. All of the success that life has to offer is made even more possible through the simple and powerful result of clarifying your goal and becoming truly capable.
Mark also encourages people to change their outlook when completing tasks in order to be more successful. If you look at something like you have to do it, then it is a chore. Instead, look at something and say that you get to do it, then it becomes a choice. A different mindset and a different attitude of how you approach things can make all the difference.
