I participated in several shooting competitions in the Corps, where the best 250+ shots from the surrounding bases would come together to strut their talent. Even though those competitions would last from sun up to sun down, often resulting in 16 or 17hr days, every night I would always spit shine my boots and starch and press my uniform so much that my pants could have stood up on their own. I would often get scoffed at with questions like, "why do you do all that when within the first minute of sprawling out prone on the firing line it would all be gone?" My response was when I put that uniform on and looked at myself in the mirror, I would always hang my head a little higher. You just can't underestimate the effect of approaching a challenge with a positive attitude. For me, that was especially true with something like shooting, which is 3% skill, 2% physical, and 95% mental. That methodology lead me to multiple first place finishes.
In short, Look good, Feel good, Shoot good.
