US Olympic Diver David Boudia on How to Overcome Fear
Watch this interview with US Olympic diver David Boudia:
Boudia talks about how he overcame his fear of diving from higher than 10 meters. When asked his advice for how to overcome fear he responds:
“This is something I would tell myself when I was trying to overcome this fear of diving from 10 meters, I would tell myself, “Is what I’m doing now getting me to where I want to be in the future?”
From the Green Room: One way to overcome speaking anxiety is to focus the larger mission at hand – both the mission of your presentation and your larger professional mission. Ask yourself, “What can I do right now to get me where I want to be?” Then do what you have to do to get there.
