Let's take a look at the note here. if someone experiences stage fright he or she gets afraid before having to face an audience. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. Let's continue. Let's look at example number one. If you want to be a professional singer you must get over your stage fright. Yeah. I think if I remember correctly. I think the old singer Carly Simon used to have stage fright sometimes. She might even cancelled some tours if I remember correctly. A long time ago. Orr there was a movie called ; Coyote Ugly' I remember years ago where the main girl was you know, trying to make it big but that was her biggest problem is that she had stage fright too. So again if you want to be a performer at all you can't have stage fright. I also remember the comedian, Jerry Seinfeld he always used to have a ...he used to .... he used to tell his jokes where yeah that once he seen a list of the things that scared people the most and actually giving a speech or doing something in front of an audience was actually number one. And number two was death and he was trying to make a joke out of that that people are more afraid of giving a speech in front of an audience or you know or performing in front of an audience than they are of dying. So well anyway, let's go on. Let's look at example number two. Even though he experienced some stage fright , Jack was able to get his nervousness under control and give a good speech. Yeah. Sometimes you can still have stage fright and still go out and do it. And still hopefully go out and not mess up or not stumble over your words or something like that. Okay good. Let's look at the third one here. They often tell someone who is going to give a speech if you want to control your nervousness to imagine the audience in their underwear. Yeah. I never really thought this might work out. Personally I think this would be very distracting, but you often heard people say that. You know if you're too nervous just just imagine the whole audience is in her underwear that would be very , very distracting. But anyway that's what they do say. Okay. I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
