The importance of preparation
In terms of the performer's self-esteem, it is essential to prepare the material to be presented as thoroughly as possible. When you know that you have prepared for the future situation as well as possible (within the limits of your time and energy, of course), you have created a strong foundation that will not be knocked down by small setbacks or technical problems. When you stand firmly behind your cause thanks to careful preparation you will be less nervous and tolerate an exciting situation better. Good preparation is an excellent medicine against stage fright.
