How can I handle pressure?
If you think there is pressure then you assuming that it exists. It is only a creation or an illusion of your imagination. The only way we can ever experience pressure is to create it in our own minds. It is a product of our imagination. If we experience pressure it is because we are projecting an imaginary view of the future. Normally, we start imagining what might happen if we do not achieve the outcome we desire. “What if I don’t win?” … “What will my parents say?” … “What will the coach say?” … “What will people think?” Pressure is a word that is misused in our vocabulary. When you start thinking of pressure, it’s because you’ve started to think of failure. Here are some points to remember:-
♦ If you experience ‘pressure’ it is being created by your Imagination.
♦ If you create pressure, you can also eliminate it.
♦ Say ‘no’ to other people’s expectations.
♦ Stick to the simple job, whatever the circumstances: just play the best game you can.
