Losing doesn’t always reflect how well you play

Talking to a Flight Schooler I learned he lost in the first round of an LOD and lost some confidence along with the match. My question: You know how well you can put the dart in the hole during solitary physical practice, right? OK, so – did you do that during the test flight of your game in competition? We agreed he did. I continued: Now comes the third part of your practice: emotion. Practice for this comes from competing and you have just invested some valuable time in taking your practice ability for a test flight. Don’t get down on yourself because one match, a LOD at that, did not have the results you would like. Look back at how well you played. Were you putting the dart in the hole, or coming mighty close? Of course you were, is what my guess is. We agreed again.
