Get it into your Bones!

bonesSigns that you haven’t integrated and internalized your material:

Ready to up my game, I decided to combine my Public Speaking talents with my Violin Playing talents. With my Public Speaking hat on I delivered the pre-concert lecture. It was fun, engaging and the audience loved it. As soon as I finished, I turned around, gave the cue for the music to start…and not a single sound came out of my violin! My joints were locked and I could hardly move! Luckily it was a string quartet and the other players kept on playing while I patiently waited for the Public Speaking excitement released into my bloodstream to dissipate! I vowed to figure out a way for that to never happen again.

Have you ever been completely sidelined by the unexpected? Did it result in extreme embarrassment?

What is the solution? In my case I had practiced my pre-concert lecture and I had practiced the music. What did I leave out? Matching my practice with the outcome! I never practiced putting the two together. What I learned, in and embarrassing way in front of an audience is something I could have learned prior. I needed to work on transitioning between Speaking & Violin Playing. In other words, I hadn’t practiced the transition to the point where it was “in my bones”.

My performance failures were heartbreaking but for some reason I always got back up and tried again. Now that I have a reliable system that serves me in a wide variety of situations, and the worry of potential embarrassment is gone, I have turned to sharing this knowledge and wisdom with people like you.

Does looking at the Inner Game of being in front of an audience interest or fascinate you?
