Emotions are what we as humans live by.  Its so hard to just let true logic be your guide but when you live on extreme emotion and let them run you, then you lose control of you.  I have seen it over and over: you are doing great with something, but then "something" happens and causes you to react.  You get pissed or angry or sad and then you lose control of everything you were just doing.  One of the keystones of a great athlete is NOT letting things affect them.  They stay cool and in control no matter what the judge says, if someone gets a break, if they get scored on, etc.  They just don't get rattled.  How do they do that?  They understand that the game, match or event is not won just on one play or turnover.  They understand that there is a multitude of opportunities to try again and regain the points, or control of the match. But the only way they will be able to utilize the opportunity or the time left is to be calm so they can respond appropriately to the situation.  They believe in the saying that "is not over until the fat lady sings!"  They believe that the sooner they can get to the new strategy, the sooner they can change what's going on.  They believe that if there is still 1 second on the clock, then they still have a chance.  This same thing happens in real life.  You can NOT let yourself be a slave to emotions.  It's so easy to get caught up in the initial feelings of a situation but if you arent able to stop quickly and then calmly adjust, then you will get run over by your own world.  So take a deep breath and be like those great athletes.  Calmly respond and do what you need to do! :)
