Account For Your Maturity When Competing
By Donny Shankle
The surroundings which galvanize your emotions when you compete will change as you get older. With age comes maturity and a stronger ability to concentrate through your own persuasion. After many years of training your muscles will harden. Likewise, after many competitions your temperament will develop into something professional. Welcome this change when it begins to happen and put away the childish motivations which stirred you before.
Muscles as well as personality both mature together. To hedge in one is to ebb the growth of the other. Relax and do not pretend to be something you are not. It’s important to identify and remove variables during competition you feel are no longer needed. Use your maturity to eliminate all the distractions you have control over. Those things you cannot control, use this same maturity to let it not affect you.
