Would you do that? Okay, so take center stage, center stage or do you feel lit? Feel lights on your face? Yeah, right there. That's pretty good. So you're gonna play the tada game. Excellent. So you are going to stand in front of this gorgeous audience and you're gonna put your arms up and out open and you're going to keep them there the whole time. Whole time. No one said I to work out here and you're going to take a deep breath and you're going to say tada now you can put your arms down. Okay, audience, your job is to encourage him to go farther. If you think he has more in him. If he has a bigger tada in him, if you think he can fill this room in a bigger way, you ask him for more and you don't let them off the hook because the audiences want everything.

You need to keep going. But but you have the breath and you can keep going and I haven't breathed since I took that breath, but it doesn't seem like I'm forcing too much at some point, I will need to take another breath and keep going. But if you know how to control the way that you breathe, then you have control of yourself, which then allows you to control the room, There's at home at home. I hope you're doing this.

So you want to surround yourself with people that will allow themselves to play to be silly. And then you start to open up and you start to feel more comfortable expressing yourself.
