Performance Anxiety

It seems to me that the people I know who have had the severest, most crippling anxiety about performing also seem to be the ones who tend to be the most hypercritical about the performances they view.  Is there a correlation?

For these people, I wonder what would happen if they made a concious effort to celebrate the performances they see and focus on what joy the performer gives the audience?  Could this be a way to break down a hypercritical wall they surely erect for themselves?

Just asking…

    Michael,
    It’s a good question. I’ve seen the same correlation at times also.
    Hope to see you soon!
