Ditch The Phrase “I’m Not Nervous!”

The first post was about controlling nervousness with one simple trick.

Now, let’s also talk about one common mistake we always make to combat nervousness – tell ourselves we are not.

Ditch this phrase!

As in the video, when you were told to NOT think about a hot pink unicorn, could you?

Most likely, you’d be thinking about the unicorn first, then try to cancel it out!

Why? Because our mind can’t “unthink” something.

So, when you say phrases like “I’m not nervous”, you are actually reinforcing the nervousness first, before trying to cancel it out.

So, Ditch the Phrase!
It’s making things worse!

So, next time, instead of saying “I’m not nervous”, go with positive reinforcements like

“I’m Confident.”
“I’m going to Ace it!”
“It’s going to be Cool.”

Ditch the Phrase "I'm not nervous!" and feel confident

You’re going to feel so much better!
