A few years ago, I published a program on SOTW for stage fright and anxiety that has been downloaded nearly 40,000 times.Neil Sharpe 11-29-2015 05:30 PM
After publication, over the years, I received many questions about the emotional and psychological aspects of performing, especially why we can't perform consistently well every time, all the time.
The answer is "distractions".
Imagine a circle. When you compete and/or perform at your very best, the circle is 100 percent complete. However, when distractions get in your way (which includes "thinking", nerves, anxiety, and self-doubt), each distraction removes a slice of the circle until you are performing at only a fraction of your potential.
By far, the most serious distraction is that voice in your head that shows up at the worst possible time to comment on how you're doing, to worry about you making mistakes, wonder what people are thinking about you, and so on.
It doesn't have to be that way.
"Pressure Proof- Mental Training For Competition and Performance" is a program that can be accessed for free.

- FAQ and Information for New Members
This was a service provided by Lycos which they now unfortunately discontinued.
By using it you could send your home page to a list.
I do not see a need for a replacement right now. All members can insert their site URL to their profile. See full list of members with at least two posts.
Unfortunately the link will exist on many www.saxontheweb.net pages. I will update the links gradually when the need for updating the page content arises.byPublished on 06-20-2012 11:07 PM Number of Views: 2279
