    I start by making a goal - might as well decide beforehand what I'd like to achieve in the face of the challenge. Then I chant for courage and wisdom and then I jump right in to the situation.

      DealForALiving,
      You chant? That's great. It must be like doing affirmations in a creative way.
      Thank you,
      Lisa

    Make sure I'm as prepared as I can be!
    As a drama teacher I have to be on the ball when it comes to directing and organising shows and plays and what have you. So I go through a sequence of rehearsals and warm up sessions to make sure the cast is fit and ready for performance day! Warm ups include physical and mental exercises, rehearsals are all about reinforcement and creativity.
    The biggest barrier to overcome for many is nerves, pure and simple. Hard work and practice help with confidence, which is key, but it's also important to get players used to the space they'll be performing in.
    Warm ups, stretches, repeat rehearsals, dress rehearsals...all vital...some individuals want special treatment... a mantra, a herb tea, a kick up the backside, a promise.....but most are just in it for the buzz and the delight!! There's nothing quite like performing well, nailing a part, in front of an audience.

      chef-dejour,
      It sounds like you're all about what comes before the challenge. If you can do the preparation part you get a chance for that "buzz and delight."
      Thank you so much for your interesting perspective,
      Lisa
