-Never Giving Up
12/18/2000 - By George Freeman
     We've all struggled at the lanes before, it will happen to everyone. Whether you're a seasoned veteran or a first-year sanctioned bowler, sooner or later Fortune will stop smiling on you for a little while. It's easy to get frustrated when things just aren't going your way, but it is important to remember to never give up.

     First of all, the very nature of scoring in this sport makes big turnarounds in short timespans very much possible. It's important to not give up--you never know what is going to happen to yourself or your opponent. This also goes when you are on the winning side of things. Scores can change very quickly, so it is important to not let up when you find yourself ahead, you need to keep putting 100% into each and every shot.

     More importantly, it is crucial to put your best into every shot to get into the proper mindset when competing in tournaments and such. You've heard the term, "You play like you practice," and it is true. If you like to give up and stop caring when you start to lose, you won't have a basis of emotions to call upon when the time comes to get up on the approach. The best players can rebound after a bad game, because they never give up.

     So next time you find yourself not doing well, don't just throw shots away, turn it into a mental drill for yourself, so when the time comes to bear down, you'll have the mental toughness to do so effectively.
