External Obstacle: Fear

External Obstacle: Fear

Storyboard Text

  • Hello, my name is Jonasia Boston. I am going to tell you about the time I was scared to talk in front of large crowds. Because I was so scared, I wanted to reach my goal of being more confident and talking in front of large crowds.
  • I couldn't let this obstacle get in my way, so I began to recite my project back to my self, then my family, then passerby's on the street.
  • The very first obstacle that got in my way was my anxiety. My anxiety would cause me to stress about what people would do if I was to mess up on a word. I also feared that I would embarrass myself.
  • The next obstacle that stood as a barrier was the idea of me failing the project. Although I practiced my project many times I still felt as if I would make a bad grade.
  • Because I felt this way I talked to my mom, and had let her know how I was feeling. She reassured me that I would do good, and shouldn't doubt myself. Her words of encouragement made me fell good, and made me believe that I could do anything.
  • Then the third obstacle was me wanting to be a perfectionists. I wanted to show everyone that although I was quiet I could really get my point across. This caused me to get to stuck in my head, and made me slowly forget about the importance of the actual project itself.
  • I took a couple of deep breaths and reassured myself that it would be okay to stumble a little bit because nobody is perfect.
  • Finally there was one last obstacle standing in my way. This obstacle was stress. I stressed about actually knowing all my lines and being prepared. I needed to make sure I would know what to say and wouldn't freeze up as soon as I presented my work.
  • In order to overcome this last and final obstacle I recited my work back to myself before I went to bed, and before I was about to present. 
  • In all people should never give up on themselves, or run away from their fears because when they stand up to their fears they become a braver person.
  • The day of presenting my project finally came, and I was 100% confident that I would do good. When the teacher asked who wanted to go first, I raised my hand with pride.
