Being perfect in front of camera or being passionate in front of camera?
My belief is that being perfect is not achievable, so it’s simple for me, it’s much better to be passionate.
If you’re perfect, well, where can you go from there? And, if you make a mistake what’s going to happen? Is your whole world going to collapse?
On the other hand, if you are passionate about what you do and you make a mistake, there’s great opportunity to learn, to grow and to get better. It also makes you more authentic and believable.
In this video I give a real life example of when being passionate was much better than being perfect. It landed the passionate individual a lead role in a musical.
So if you want to make videos don’t expect to make them perfect first time and don’t worry about it either. With passion, energy and enthusiasm you will grow into being a great presenter in front of camera. Yes, you’ll make mistakes, but your personality will shine through and over time your technique will improve, and you will be awesome.
