The FEAR: Success

The Fear: Success

This falls under the emotion of "HOLY CRAP DID I JUST DO THAT?!?" The problem here is, I will pull off some amazing move, or chain of events that I wasn't trying to accomplish. While basking in the glory of the breath taking moment... I bite it. The amazing, once in a lifetime Awesomeness of that event completely throws me off my game... to the point where it is so distracting that it causes me to fail, at yet another easy obstacle.

This is frustrating on many levels. I do this amazing thing, only to fail, what a waste... Once I do an amazing thing, I am worried about failing... I will probably never be able to do that amazing thing again.

At the end of the day, I love to play games... but usually my emotions get the better of me. I wish that I could just enjoy the game for what it is sometimes, but I just can't seem to let go of this fear of succeeding.

Does anyone else have these problems, or is it just me and my weak mind?
