• LESSON 1 – NATURAL ABILITY WILL NOT MAKE YOU A SHOOTING CHAMPION.
    (You also need hard work, training effort and perseverance.)
  • LESSON 2 – ANGER IS THE ENEMY OF GOOD SHOOTING.
    (The key to recovering from a bad shot is to stay cool, no matter what happens.)
  • LESSON 3 – BAD SHOTS CAN TEACH YOU MORE THAN GOOD SHOTS.
    (Today, error analysis is one of the most powerful tools for improving scores.)
  • LESSON 4 – NEVER GO WITHOUT A SHOT PLAN.
    (A shot plan is a detailed breakdown of each of the steps involved in firing a shot.)
  • LESSON 5 – PRACTICE IN BAD CONDITIONS AS WELL AS GOOD CONDITIONS.
    (Most competitions are fired in windy conditions or where there are plenty of distractions.)
  • LESSON 6 – CHAMPIONS ARE POSITIVE, OPTIMISTIC PEOPLE.
    (Negative shooters expect bad results; positive shooters expect to train hard to change bad results.)
  • LESSON 7 – IT’S NOT ABOUT WHETHER YOU WIN OR LOSE.
    (It’s about how hard you try to win.)
  • LESSON 8 – YOUR DOG WON’T BITE YOU AFTER SHOOTING A BAD SCORE.
    (Hopefully your coach, parents and friends won’t bite you either.)
  • LESSON 9 – YOUR PRESS CLIPPINGS CAN HURT YOU OR HELP YOU.
    (Winning can go to our heads. We start thinking we are so good we don’t have to work hard any more.)
  • LESSON 10 — YOU NEVER SHOT YOUR BEST SCORE.
    (Great champions are always looking for ways to improve.)
