i do some breathing exercises and talk myself out of being nervous. If i have to read a paper out loud in front of the class it helps to think about how when the other people are reading theirs out loud im not paying attention to them im worrying about my own paper. then you realize no one is really listening and even if they are they dont actually care.

Well I have not been in a situation like that lately but I have thought if was to be nervous I would just remmember no matter what other people think about me I do not care for what they think. I normally have a phrase for that but it's not appropriate for here. before I did get this motto I just ignored everyone and kept my distance from situations where I would be nervous. but stand tall and do what you want to do. xD

I try not to get too nervous for class presentation, but when I do my head start to get all spinny. Then my heart just starts pounding more. And I choke a little. But after speaking for a while, I just calm down and eventually start talking smoothly. I'm weird.

Know your stuff like the back of your hand. I had to do a presentation for a class. I studied/practiced for it so well, I had everything memorized and didn't need to look at any papers (I brought them though just in case). I just looked at the clock at the back of the room, pinched my finger behind my back to keep me from having wandering/detrimental thoughts, and gave my speech. I was the only student who did that (totally memorized my paper and didn't have to read from it) and aced it.

Like a lot of people have said before me, it's all in your head. Prepare yourself mentally and don't pay attention to the fact that there are people watching you. Just believe in yourself and let go.

The only way to completely stop being nervous, in my opinion, is to repeat activities that make you nervous and gradually make it into something to enjoy. I remember I used to have a problem with leadership capabilities when I was a lot younger; I hated going up in front of people or even just standing in class to announce something.

But, as I matured, I took chances and defeated all those little butterflies in my stomach.
For example, I participated in talent shows and sang. My first time, I thought I crapped a bucketful of poop in my pants (sorry for tmi).
I kept announcing things, spoke more in front of groups of people, and then quickly came to the point where I ran for offices and strengthened my leadership/public speaking skills by a LOT.

I'm very shy yes. Well I usually implement dirty words into my language to deal with that.

Would you like some wet pussy with that cup of coffee?

With all the sales experience I have, which translates into a massive number of conversations with strangers it just does not happen anymore. You wanna get over that? Try selling bs in front of Wal-Marts for some local charity to every Tom, Dick and Harry that walks by. Talk to everyone. Never prejudge. Use the 5 steps to a conversation. Blah blah blah. After 3 months you don't even think about it anymore. You just think about finding a better job which turns out to be easy because you never get nervous anymore.

I used to get nervous back in high school when I had to perform speeches in most of my clubs.

Pills...? Jk. Pills are bad! No!
Uuum, I start drawing all over. On my hands usually, with a pen I carry around.
If I'm in a situation where I can't start scribblin' on me self then I look at the ceiling as if I were in pain.

I make certain that I am well prepared, I visualize things in a very positive way and I realize that people don’t care that much about what I do.
