Anxiety


While googling around for info on Music performance anxiety I found this...


 

 

THE NEED TO WIN

 

When an archer is shooting for nothing

He has all his skill.

If he shoots for a brass buckle

He is already nervous.

If he shoots for a prize of gold

He goes blind

Or sees two targets--

He is out of his mind!

 

His skill has not changed. But the prize

Divides him. He cares.

He thinks more of winning

Than of shooting--

And the need to win

Drains him of power.
