Archery is a great sport to help you learn so much about focus and patience. Every single arrow that you fire needs great focus and patience from you to get to the center of the target. Every time you pull your compound bowstrings to shot an arrow you need to focus on the target and clear your mind. But not only that, because you need to wait for the perfect time to release the arrow or even the movement when you are taking a breath will make you miss the center. The pressure is not only happening in your mind and body when you draw an arrow but also in the bowstring. With the pressure that keeps building on the string, it needs proper care and maintenance or it will snap. Once it snaps, you need to replace it with the new one.
