Beyond pre-performance stress

IF YOU HAVE participated in sports, can you think back to one of your most successful and stress-free performances? Did it seem effortless? How confident did you feel? Probably you have found that feeling and playing stress-free doesn't always happen just because you hope it will. I have found that the best way to get on top of performance stress is to get on top of pre-performance anxiety.

In the days and hours before a performance, you can use a wonderful weapon—prayer—to eliminate anxiety. Prayer allows the power of God to permeate your thoughts and life. It helps you to act fearlessly and reason clearly. A prayerful, confident attitude before a performance carries forward to strengthen you during your performance.
