Imagine… you’ve just been introduced.
In a few seconds, you’re going to deliver the speech of your life. Your opening hook is crisp. Your closing is powerful. Your stories are polished. Your attire is impeccable. You are confident.
And then the power goes out.
Or someone spills juice on you.
Or music starts blaring from outside the room.
Or the CEO leaves the room.
Or your key prop is missing.
Or a mild earthquake shakes the room.
Or your shirt ripped.
Or your computer freezes.
Or … (insert your worst nightmare here) .
There’s only one thing you can do — only one thing you must do.
