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 PeakSports.com

Many peaksports.com 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.
