If you believe that you are NOT ready for a competition, then everything in your body and mind will act that way too. A lack of confidence will make your technique crumble and your race day miserable. So what can you do to be ready?
My heart is saying I don’t understand or accept or desire it enough to do it now. My brain just needs to figure out why. Stop looking for another reason more complex than fearing the truth.
Actually I was going to entitle this post dealing with idiots/jerks, but then reconsidered 😉
First competitions are coming up for the new archers. While I have been competing for decades and absolutely love the buzz …some newbies and some veterans alike are not so inclined.
One specific feeling word that pops up is anxiety. This is a real medical problem for some people when it leads to panic attacks, hyperventilation, and fainting (yes I have been first responder on archery fields with such incidents so be prepared).
