Who says nervousness is bad?

Generally, we have a notion that nervousness is not good. But, it is not true.

How do I know?

Well, I am not shy to disclose that I am always a little bit nervous doing almost anything or everything. Whether it is performing tabla, an Indian percussion instrument, or reciting a poem in front of a small audience, I get some nervousness before starting the performance. After doing it for some time, I feel fine doing it.

Sourav Ganguly, a successful cricket player from India, who is now the President of the Board of Cricket Control of India, says, "A little bit of nervousness in everything is good. Because nervousness actually helps you to become better."

Linkedin administrators are happy to invite Sourav Ganguly as an official influencer. The LinkedIn professional community trusts the official influencers for their views about life and career.

I believe in Sourav Ganguly's ability as a cricketer, team leader, sports administrator, commentator, speaker, and TV reality show anchor. Sourav Ganguly's commentaries about life and career are from his long-time practice with different traits and render a variety of roles.

Life requires a lot of preparation, aka "practice"

When we go to do work, it requires a lot of knowledge and skills. Your knowledge and skills are the only tools that serve you at the time of your work. You may face a significant challenge in your career.

Nothing can help you other than your skills and knowledge base.

  • If you prepare well, you are poised to succeed. If your preparation lacks dedication and hard work, your confidence suffers. Once your spirit is weak, it is more likely that you may falter.

So, advance preparation and practice save you from faltering. Once you do the right action supported by your practiced skills, there is more chance that you will accomplish the most challenging job.

Nervousness acts as a safeguard in your life challenge

Even though you have enough experiential knowledge and have acquired many prerequisite skills, a little bit of safeguarding is necessary to save you from failing in the smaller steps. You might face a massive challenge from many sides.

Your nervousness makes you vigil to all the perils of life.

Nobody prepares to fail. Those will succeed who prepare well enough and keep a space for safeguarding. Self-confidence is good. But, overconfidence may not help. Your little nervousness offers you the much-required safeguarding strategies.

Closing remarks and recommendation

  • Life is a big practical laboratory full of experiments, verification, and carrying out the experiments again and again. In Sanskrit, it is called "Karma."

  • Never stop practicing the daily grills of life. Face every "Karma" with zeals.

You may feel a little bit nervous. Don't worry. It is very much a part of the game.

“A little bit of nervousness in everything is good. Because nervousness actually helps you to become better” - Sourav Ganguly, ace Indian criketer.

Accept your nervousness as a powerful shield and do everything with confidence.

Nervousness is the much-needed shield your experiential knowledge provides you for facing all challenges of life.

Face and enjoy life as it comes to you.

  • Be prepared with a lot of practice and skills at hand.

Ultimately, you have to play the games of life yourself.

Wise words by Mr. Ganguly, and I agree with you, Unity, that nervousness is good. It helps to give you a sense of caution and care for detail which may be lacking otherwise.

I was amazed when Ganguly referred to "nervousness" as a "precautionary" strategy.

Maybe, some people wanted to powerfully use "fear" to showcase their mental state.

There is nothing wrong with being nervous. There are many challenges in our life and we have to deal with them. Yes, sometimes we get a little nervous while doing new things.
