  5. Visualization: Visualize yourself successfully performing in front of an audience, imagining the positive feelings of confidence and excitement.
  6. Accept nervousness: Accept that nervousness is a natural part of performing and that it can actually increase your energy and focus.
  7. Practice mindfulness: Practice mindfulness by staying present in the moment and focusing on your breath and your body sensations.
  8. Prepare thoroughly: Prepare thoroughly for your performance by practicing and rehearsing beforehand.
  9. Visualize success: Visualize yourself giving a successful performance, imagining the audience responding positively to your performance.
  10. Practice self-affirmations: Practice self-affirmations by repeating positive affirmations to yourself before you go on stage.
  11. Connect with the audience: Connect with the audience by making eye contact, smiling, and engaging with them.
