Issues Addressed: Stage fright can start at any age, even if you’ve never had it before. It makes smart and talented people feel dumb, but has nothing to do with skill or intelligence.
Overview: Even bright, confident people get “stage fright.”
Famous performers such as Adele, Rihanna, Lorde, Beyonce, Harry Styles, Emma Watson and Katy Perry experience performance anxiety and so do older, more experienced entertainers such as Barbra Streisand, Rod Stewart, Eddie Van Halen, Carly Simon, Cher, Ozzy Osbourne …and the list goes on!
In school, of course, this most often shows up as Math Anxiety, Test Anxiety, Presentation Anxiety and Sports Anxiety. This type of anxiety can lead to very poor performance when you least want it to happen and can result in poor grades, being benched or being scapegoated. Now is the time to learn how to avoid performance anxiety.
