Fear of Failure Holds Back Your Game

December 20, 2007


I love playing sports(Even at 53!) and motivational sports articles are always read with interest. Here’s one I liked and drew a cartoon to go with it….

Fear of Failure Holds Back Your Game by Dr.Patrick Cohn

Many readers have requested that I write about how to deal with the fear of failure. Many athletes that come to work with me hold back their physical ability because of the fear of failure. Fear of failure can motivate athletes to work hard and improve, but it also can become debilitating when the first ball is served and it is time to play your best when it counts. Typically, highly perfectionistic athletes have this syndrome.

Their and many typical fears associated with fear of failure. Fear of embarrassment is a good example of one of the fears associated with the fear of failure. This is when you are afraid to make mistakes in front of others for fear of what they may be thinking about you or your performance. Fear of making mistakes is another example. This is when you play very tentatively or defensively because you are afraid to make mistakes, fault, or miss a shot long.

Smile Your Way To Success!

December 11, 2007


I thought you might like to see the cover of the book Peter Sinclair and I collaborated on…Smile Your Way To Success. Peter fed me the idea that some negative words were always trying to get into your head. I came up with this idea to repell them!

‘If I don’t use it then I’ll lose it.’

December 8, 2007

This is one of around 100 short pieces that Peter Sinclair wrote and I illustrated with cartoons from a book titled: Smile Your Way Yo Success!

Limbs encased in plaster and then suddenly released from their dark enclosure need a lot of exercise before they can get back into normal operation. So too are your talents, your mind and your imagination if you for some reason have neglected them. Many dreams have passed on with their owners to the grave through lack of use, but yet you can breathe fresh life into yours by rehearsing them in your mind and by living them out in your daily affairs. Once you have identified your strengths, then strengthen them through consistent use. By doing this you will not lose. You will win.

Written by Peter Sinclair of:

Start of Race - On your marks, get set - GO!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Cracked It cartoon!

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are –
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
