Poor perspective is often the result of thinking you can’t cope with situations you’re facing or will be facing. Use your brain. You’ve handled these same situations well before. The difference isn’t in the circumstance; it’s in your perception of it – and of yourself. You got where you are because of your talent and your trust in it. How do you lose it? By interpreting events and consequences with a jaundiced eye. Trust your ability to cope with whatever reality you meet, and you’ll create a healthy perspective. That, in tum, will encourage self-confidence. As a result, your relaxed muscles will be free to give you what you want from them: a more consistently effective performance.
