Today, I follow up on that idea with another assertion - YOU ARE READY!
In my work as a corporate communications trainer, I often hear clients tell me that their confidence is directly linked to how much preparation they've done.
In other words, they often don't feel confident if they haven't prepared.
|I didn't feel nearly ready to leave Vancouver!|
Improv teaches us that you can be confident without being prepared because you are READY.
Your wisdom, experience, intuition, and ability are all available to you to make something up in the moment. To co-create with your audience.
You're ready to listen.
You're ready to contribute based on what you hear.
You're ready to be in the moment.
Of course preparation is essential. Sometimes though, we use preparation as something to hide behind as a way to cheat ourselves of being in the moment. Being prepared sometimes means doing it "like you practiced" or delivering the thinking that you've done previously. It can be comfortable to live in the past. It takes great courage to be in the moment and jump in "unprepared" and aware.
You may be unprepared, but that doesn't mean you're not ready.
You are enough.
You are ready.
