And I'm nervous.
My new straight pool season is upon me... and the top guys I couldn't beat the last few seasons have been all moved up to the upper division. BUT - there are still a few really tough opponents left, and all the other matches wont be easy anyway (never are).
To be the top player in my division and win that little dang trophy would mean SO much to me! I can't even put into words what an accomplishment it would mean to me. It would be a life-goal achieved!
But, being already nervous, wont help me much. I know that from experience.
I have two matches planned for this weekend, I truly hope I play okay and start the season off well.
I have been watching straight pool DVDs - Phil Capelle's new straight pool DVD and Pat Flemming's Accu-Stats instructional straight pool DVDs. They each discuss my problem areas - key balls and break shots. I feel more comfortable, but how will I do at the table this weekend?
And, the season is early and yet I'm already nervous! :(
It's amazing how I perceive the possibility of achieving "titles" and achievements - I freak myself out over the possibility, which is what we aren't suppose to do - think ahead. Only think of the present moment and my pre-shot routine.
Gosh I hope I remember that.
