  • You don't have to flee and you don't have to fight.

  • What happens to your body in case of stress, for instance, when you have to do a presentation?

  • Well, it's very funny, but what your body experiences is a kind of fear.

  • Anxiety just for being there, for standing on that stage, and, also, maybe you're afraid of the audience, which is absurd, of course.

  • But what happens is that there's a kind of basic instinct from which the level of adrenaline in your body is going to augment, it's going to get higher.

  • So, all the energy is going to your feet and to your hands because your body is preparing to run away, to flee, or to fight.

  • But, of course, you don't have to run awayyou can't run awayand you don't have to fight the audience.

  • Preferably not.

  • So, you have to tell your body that thingdon't run and don't fight.

  • It's very easy; you just happen to let your feet walk around.

  • Don't do this, because that's your feet wanting to run away,

  • but let them walk... walk around; you can do that during a presentation, or before a presentation.

  • You can just easily walk around; tell your body, "It's okay, you don't have to run."

  • Same thing with your hands.

  • Your hands don't have to fight.

  • You can just shake them a couple of times, and that's a way of telling your body,

  • "It's okay, I don't need any adrenaline in my hands; I need it in my head."

  • So, you don't have to run, you don't have to fight, and you have to control your breathing.

  • But that's a totally different story; too long to tell you in a nutshell today.

  • So, remember your feet and your hands.

You don't have to flee and you don't have to fight.
