You may often struggle to manage their emotions and the physiological responses that go with high intensity situations. In some situations, you may feel relieved when you are not asked to play a greater role. In order to improve in this area, you need to learn and accept that the unknown is part of competition as are strong emotions.
You may need to figure out and examine whether or not you are responding to what is happening now or what has happened in past performances or situations. Your brain may be tricking you into believing that you need to overreact. You will need to develop a set of tools and a plan for managing those emotions and your body’s response when they occur.
