Episode #112 — Take a breath.

Bruce Springsteen was once asked if he ever got stage fright. Without hesitation, he said “Never.” He went on to say that he knows it’s time to perform when his palms get a little sweaty, his heart races a bit, and he gets a little short of breath. After a few deep breaths, he heads out onto the stage.

“Fear is excitement without the breath.”
— Fritz Perls, MD
