Speeding Everything Up and Cortisol

Most shooters’ reaction to adversity is to allow themselves to speed up in everything they do – especially in how fast they talk.

This leads to a timing problem, which leads to hope. Then this leads to evaluation, which deeply drinks the hormonal cocktail of choice – cortisol.

Cortisol is a hormone that makes your hands speed up, compromises your ability to focus and makes your breathing shallow and labored. This thought process typically occurs in a win or lose situation, and this thought process is instant evaluation in the face of adversity.
