Default What's holding you back?

I've often wondered as of lately anyway, what's holding me back, alot of what i've read and experienced first hand is, that when you reach a certain level of consistency, archery becomes EXTREMELY mental. I completely understand, what i dont get or at least havent mastered yet, is how to work on the mental part, like i can work on a release, or consistent grip. I understand not every shoot, whether it be league, a tournament, or just on the range, wont be a victory, or result in a perfect score, but what i need to peg down is how to hit a good consistent average, and not very much from there. It's a work in progress, it's all a game, and i NEED to understand that to advance, and have fun.

That being said, i know what's stopping me for the most part, and I know it's not a great idea to talk about what you do wrong, and im not here, im more or less identifying what i need to fix in order to get to the next level.

Im just curious to see what other people are getting held back by, or maybe you've made it, i want everyone's opinion on here, id love to get some pros in on this, just so see what has helped them advance to the places id love to be. is offline   Reply With Quote
