"Feeling nervous and feeling exciting is the same thing" ---
The students always get so nervous before getting on stage.
The symptoms are the same. Your heartbeat gets so fast and you have trouble breathing and thinking . But the kids always tell me they are nervous .
I said you are excited !
When you are excited the body and mind steps forward .
When you are nervous the thought pulls you back.
The same situation, different thinking different belief and different result .
