Save what inspires you
These feelings are triggered by the anticipation of a future event that cause you to either prompt you to take comfort in an inevitable success or, conversely, to feel alarmed about an imminent failure.
Adjusting your expectations can be tricky, but in most cases, once the event has transpired, you can find at least partial relief in knowing the outcome.
When you’re the best in the world, the amount of stress it takes to gain that 1% (or less than that) improvement to maintain your top form is extraordinary.
Being the best in the world only amplifies the pressure to stay game-ready.
Research shows that experiencing an unexpected setback can give anyone the fuel to propel ahead later in their career, and eventually live longer and more successful lives as a result.
It takes time and work to steer your negative emotions into a productive direction, but the benefits of doing so can be well worth the effort.

The Berlin Games were canceled due to the outbreak of World War I in July 1914.
Organizers initially thought that the war would be over by Christmas but an armistice was not reached until November 1918.
Tokyo and Sapporo, Japan, had been originally set to host the 1940 Olympic Games (summer and winter), making them the first non-Western cities selected to host. But the war between Japan and China started in July 1937 and made the Japanese government decide to lose their right to host the Games.
The new hosts: Helsinki, Finland (for summer) and Garmisch-Partenkirchen Germany (for winter). But the outbreak of World War II caused the events to be canceled entirely, after the Nazi invasion of Poland in September 1939. The same happened with the 1944’s Summer Olympics in London and Winter Games in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
Forced separation, while new to most, is a fact of life for the world’s migrants. Many continue close ties with relatives, despite years or decades of physical distance.
Video communication can be too draining and may make feelings of separation more intense. Written communication can feel too impersonal and may not be accessible to people with visual impairments.
Migrant families rely on phone calls for almost all of their communication as calls are intimate and convey emotions without the constant visual reminders of separation.
Migrants greet something like this: "I send greetings to you to my grandchildren, to my daughter-in-law, and to all those who surround you."
Such elaborated greetings articulate family relationships that stretch across space. They continually create and re-create connections despite the distance.
