-Trying Too Hard
04/11/2001 - By George Freeman
      We all want to do well, especially if your team is fighting for first place in the league, or you're trying to do well in a special tournament.  Sometimes this creates tension, because we don't want to mess up, or do anything bad to hurt our chances.  Tension will create negative thoughts, and that will create bad shots, because the mind controls the body.  Here are some tips to avoid trying too hard.

      Realize you're a human being and can make mistakes, and will make mistakes.  Let them go and move on.

      When you miss a spare, forget about it.  When you're up in the 8th frame grumbling about the chopped spare in the 4th frame, you aren't concentrating on what you should be doing.

      When you're in the 3rd frame, don't worry about what you'll need in the 8th frame.  Bowl every frame like its the only one you get.

      If you get into a rut, and just cant seem to make anything work, take a step back and regroup.  Take a couple deep breaths, maybe walk down to get a drink of water, do something to break up the monotony.  Go talk to a friend, count to 10, something.

      And most of all, have fun.
