In the world there are only two tragedies. One is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.

Oscar Wilde

The toughest thing about success is that you have to keep on being a success.

It is easy to get on the top. It is harder to stay on the top. I think encore anxiety stems from the desire to stay on the top, to always stay ahead, to always beat the opponent.

Vince Lombardi (football coach), “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only┬áthing.”

I think most of the people who suffer from encore anxiety are the ones who forget the fact that success is only one part of life and to live a richer and fuller life one needs to let go and risk failure and even experience failure.

  1. This is a perspective I hadn’t thought of before and I’m glad you shared it. A fear of losing a kind of status we’ve achieved is very real and I’m sure it is in part associated with encore anxiety.
