Maybe you’ve heard of Diamond White, or maybe you remember her from this amazing audition, but we can all learn a thing or two from it.
Diamond was only 13 years old when she made it on stage for the biggest audition of her life. The young girl was faced with what must have been a tremendous amount of fear, but she does two key things that help her to deliver an amazing audition.
First, she doesn’t turn away a challenge just because she is nervous. When one of the judges tells her not to sing a song, one that she was probably more prepared to sing, she didn’t panic. She accepted it as a challenge, and calmly wend over her mental list and chose another song to sing.
Appearing to be calm can go a long way in actually keeping you calm, but accepting a challenge is no good without the other part of Diamond’s equation: her self-confidence.
