By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
The first time for everything is always the most exciting one. Whether it is your first day in a new job or going on a first date, you will always remember those “first” times.
Not only is there a lot of excitement loaded in those events, but there is also a fear of some sort included. You may be thinking about whether or not you are able to perform well enough, or what the other person (or persons) think of you if you fail.
Instead of having thoughts like that, what if you turned the first time into a very positive and exciting event?
Here are some steps to make you feel better when entering new situations that you feel anxious about, allowing you to prepare better.
