How do I get over being nervous?

Being nervous before a presentation is perfectly normal and can even work to your advantage, if you can

channel your “nerves” into energetic enthusiasm. People who can manage this task learn to enjoy being on stage.

Others have to struggle. An article in WebMd claims that our level of speech anxiety is “hardwired,” and that some of us struggle with our fears more than others. The article offers good advice for “sensitizers,” or those of us who become morenervous during a speech, not less.
