Jeff Nelsen's speeches are inspiring explorations of performance anxiety and fear that plague many individuals and they examine how to overcome that anxiety. In particular, he highlights where fears originate from, explaining how the choice to be fearful is an individual's own and outlines pointers to combat these fears.
