Dear Carol

School talent show chicken


Our big end-of-the-school-year talent show is coming up. I signed up, but I might chicken out. What should I tell myself so I don’t go onstage and puke?


Dear Stagefright,
I remember how sc-sc-sc-scared I was as a guest on The Today Show. But instead of thinking, “What if I mess up?” I kept telling myself, “How cool is this? I worked hard for this opportunity!” So that is my advice. Look at your moment in the spotlight as a wonderful, well-earned honor, no a reason to barf. Turn your natural nervousness into healthy excitement. It feels good to share your talents with people. Keep practicing, then get out there and shine. Imagine how great it will feel when you take your bow.
