[Have you ever experienced performance anxiety? Do your nerves tend to overtake you before any big sporting event or other public performance?

Many people are challenged with debilitating performance anxiety, and one of our listeners recently wrote in to ask that we cover a special episode on the topic. So, today we’ll be discussing some powerful tools to help you rid yourself of the nerves and bring your performance to a whole new level!

Now, for those of you who may be thinking that a sports discussion really isn’t for you, hold tight—the tools we use to combat performance anxiety can also be used for combatting difficulties with things like public speaking and voicing your opinions effectively at work.

No matter what anxiety issues you may be experiencing in public, you will probably benefit from this discussion.

So, what’s the big deal about “game day” anyway? Why do we let ourselves get so worked up about it? Instinctively, we understand what it is that makes us so nervous, but it can be hard to put it into words. As a teenager, I remember dreading game day: events were scheduled during the day, as opposed to the evenings when we practiced, which felt awkward to me physically; and the coaches and other players would get so worked up that they’d be yelling at each other (and me) aggressively, which felt awful to me mentally and emotionally. When we take an objective glance at this scenario, it’s not hard to grasp what would cause it to be anxiety-inducing for most people.

All of the obstacles above ultimately point to one thing: approval anxiety.]

Ok this is how I’m feeling,I’m a 6th grader going into 7th planning on doing volleyball,basketball,track.I have been Thinking ab scenarios in my head if I mess up or just humiliate myself in a game.My friends and family will be there and I get extremely just the thoughts of being embarrassed infront of there anything I can do?

  3. I really wanna play volleyball but my anxiety in general is so so bad, I shake so bad and I almost fainted once. I’m trying to get over it because I actually wannna have fun and don’t wanna regret anything

  4. I have a problem with getting too confident 😂. Basicly I get all pumped up and confident and when the game starts it's like my brain thinks this will be easy and than I lose to way "worse" or lower ranked players. Do you have any tips about that? By the way this video is very helpful, been looking for something like this for ages.

  5. Thanks man, I used to get so nervous during games because I was afraid of letting the team down and being judged, this helps a lot

  6. I have been trying to find a video like this for a really long time and this was extremely helpful. Thanks a lot.

  7. I play at a very competitive league in soccer and I would always play really good in practices and when I’d play with friends but when it would come to a game I can’t concentrate and my confidence would go down slowly when I’d start messing up, but after watching this video I’m going to try out your techniques and hopefully they’ll work, thank you! I know this video will help me out in my future games

  8. I play Table Tennis at the National Level… I play really well while practicing and playing in practice matches with 0 or very few viewers…. but, when I play the important ones, I really get freaked out… my hands literally shake out of nervousness….. I miss very much and my feet feel too heavy in the important tournaments…. I'll definitely try this and will surely approach to you after the results…. THANKS FOR THE VIDEO!!!! 🙂

  9. Bro im getting better at public speaking no problems there and getting better in boxing. but i have this big nervousness that i somehow built up in a video game that i play (which i want to go pro on) and even when i do a normal match i have this big nervousness i try to tell myself it will just make it worse if im nervous! or it will be fking ok if i die! and when i die i m like look. its ok. why nervous to myself. its a hard time for me i have experienced this for 2 years on that game. it hurts me that i want to go pro at the game but im nervous even when doing a small match that does not even mean so much i dont understand why aswell. but i will try ur lessons from here but to be honest this voice deep down tells me eh. do u expect this to work out? like didnt u try smthin maybe similar and it didnt work? it is hurting me mentally. i havent shared this with anyone or they would be laughing about it cuz it sounds dumb

    and also when i play against like some people who are not that good and they kill me it just hurts me aswell. maybe i have had bad experiences in life that cause this idk man its a hard thing

  10. YO I WAS DIEING!!! THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!! It was so bad, my head and stomach started hurting. It's not at all the first time…. Sport is bringing so much stress into my life, this is SOOO HELPFULL!!!! 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🥳🥳🥳🤯🤯🥳🥳🤯🤯🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥

  11. Please add substile in this type of video..i dont understand english well…but i can read and understood it…so su substitle please

  12. What could you say to someone like me, I like games a lot and I don't like playing sports. My dad is forcing me to play sports and is forcing me to play baseball and no matter how many times I have tried to talk to him about it he just gets mad at me and threatens me and yells at me. And I'm bi-sexual while I'm pretty sure most of the team is straight. So every practice I always feel left out and separated from my team and I'm scared that if they find out they won't accept me and might accidentally tell my dad. I'm really scared especially because my dad said that if I were ever to turn out gay then he would kill me and I don't know if he was being literal or not, please help me and I'm this close to just giving up and ending it, please help me.😖😖 And also sometimes I think to myself "I wish I wasn't a guy" but I know that girls have hard lives too, so please help me…

  13. bro you are so right you have inspired me to be better. now i will pump myself up before each game and tell my self i can do it thanks so much

  14. Thank you so much, this really helps me with basketball, I do so much better because of you. I will highly recommended you to my friends. You are amazing, thank you
