Secrets of Fearless Performers

Secrets of Fearless Performers

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what stands in the way of reaching our musical goals besides the actual musical training.

Often discomfort and fear are the only things holding us back. It’s true for kids and adults.

It’s okay to feel that way, because courage requires vulnerability.

You can do uncomfortable things. You can acknowledge the fear or uncertainty and choose to do what scares you anyway.

I’m reminded of how much courage I needed to muster when I quit my corporate job in 2008 to start my journey as an entrepreneur. Or how I started Portland Musical Theater Company in 2016 with just a dream of producing theatre that would bring audiences hope and joy.

I’m living proof you can do things even if you’re scared. You can feel the fear and do it anyway.

Choose courage.
