Basic fears like the fear of heights and intangible fears like the fear of failure in sports competition are different in ways other than their relative simplicity and concreteness. The utility of, for instance, fearing snakes is obvious: It helps us avoid being bitten by them. And inasmuch as fear is unpleasant, what we need to do to avoid experiencing the fear of snakes is obvious: We must steer clear of situations where we are likely to encounter them. (There are some great running trails near my home that some runners never visit because they are trafficked by snakes.) The benefit of some of the most common running-related fears, such as not achieving race goals, is not so obvious. After all, this specific fear often causes runners to chokethat is, the fear of failure precipitates failure. It is also not so obvious what we should do about this fear. While the fear mechanism generally works to our benefit, like every other physical mechanism in the body, it is not perfect. Just as the immune system exists to protect us but can make us sick when it overreacts to certain physical stimuli, some fears develop as maladaptations to psychological stimuli and become much greater problems for us than those stimuli. In most cases, however, fear of failure in running races is not a maladaptation. Instead, it serves two specific purposes. First, it actually primes us physically and psychologically to perform well. The physiological changes that occur when a person sees and fears a snake enable him to escape it (or possibly fight it) more effectively. Likewise, the anxiety that a runner feels before a race makes it possible for him to run faster. While the mental component of this anxiety does create some risk of choking, that risk notwithstanding, the runner will generally race better when he is scared before the race than when he is not. Second, fear of failure in all contexts discourages us from taking unnecessary risks. It is the body’s way of asking, “How important is this really?” If we understand this message and decide that the task we face is not worth the attending risk, we have an opportunity to back out. But if, understanding the message, we decide that the task is worth the risk, then we go into it with a fuller sense of its importance, which enables us to try harder and perform better than we would have done without anxiety.Chest Exercises \u0026amp; Chest Workouts Bestcelebritystyle
