As a performer, I'm always confident in my abilities, yet I always have nervous energy (adrenaline rush) for wanting it to go well; to exceed expectations.

For example as a DJ for 27 years, I was nervous before everyone of my 2,000+ shows; not for lack of talent or confidence, but simply because I cared whether or not people had fun.

I have a lot of audacity, but I still care about my audiences' experience: as a husband, dad, friend, musician, an author, a Realtor & a professional speaker, etc.

I have been told I am super confident.  Frankly, I call it being prepared.  When I am meeting a client, I try to have the answers to their potential questions BEFORE they think of them or ask them.

If feeling nervous, one should consider taking a public speaking class or join a "Toastmasters" group to get training and practice.
