Paradoxically, a key element of her approach is to fight stage fright by trying to make it worse. If your hands are shaking, instead of trying to hide it or stop it, try to make them shake harder. She advocates trying to see how far you can take your fear, because then you know its limit and it's no longer an unknown territory.
I wonder if this same kind of technique can work for other kinds of anxiety and self-doubt. I know that when I try to fight my way out of an emotional trap, the jaws usually tighten around me and it's worse.
My buddy Smalls (yes, I know. . . that's her name she goes by) has done the homeless thing. She's good at it and knows that she can survive it. So have I. The difference I think is that I forgot that I could deal with homelessness. There's definitely an "I've been through worse" mentality that aids, but I'm still in need of serious help as well.
