I don’t think I’ve reeeeeeeeally talked about it here (which must be rectified), but I live for the feeling of equal nerves/excitement. My clients know that if they ever say, “I’m nervous” I’ll follow it up with “But excited?” and if they say “Yes”, I throw a freakin’ party right then and there. That’s because an equal shot of nerves and excitement means that whatever thing you’re thinking of matters. Without the nerves, excitement is fun, but it’s not anything to grow on. Without the excitement, then nerves are just…The Uh-Oh Feeling. So don’t let those nerves take over and push whatever is exciting you away….Dig deep and ask:
What are you nervous/excited about?
Ooh, I can’t wait to hear!
