Peak Performance and Performance anxiety improvement
The importance of being accepted by others is an evolutionary essential part of maintaining one's life. Without the acceptance of the group, you would be likely cast out on your own and perish without the ability to secure your needs. This is why public speaking can feel like a life or death situation. The mind can easily disrupt a person's ability to perform any task they would otherwise complete perfectly. Performance anxiety can also impact athletes, actors, musicians, intimate relationships, job interviewees, students, and just about anyone confronted with a task.
I have a secondary career in the entertainment and film industry. I have given many speeches to auditoriums of spectators, given interviews on television and radio, and worked diligently behind the camera to produce movie magic. Due to my personal connection with the high-intensity performance atmosphere, I have been witness to the detrimental effects of performance anxiety and the perpetual drive to become better at ones craft. It is for this reason I have chosen to pursue a specialty in performance anxiety reduction.
