Chapter Seventeen. And So to Speak > Healthy nervousness?

Healthy nervousness?

Yes, healthy. It's natural to be nervous before you speak. Seasoned actors suffer from stage fright now and then and may even forget their lines. TV anchors feel nervous before they go on the air. And even the best speakers have moments in which they wish they were anywhere doing anything.

The difference between nervousness and fear is that fear is debilitating, but nervousness is controllable. It's also useful. It keeps you from being overconfident.
