The champion arrived at the competition to prove once and for all that he was the greatest archer in the land. All the other competitors were intimidated by his presence and the audience assumed he would be the clear winner.
Surprisingly, each time the champion took the field, his arrows were inaccurate and his technique clumsy. His performance was no better than a beginning archer.
Perplexed by his performance, an audience member asked the Zen Master what he thought was wrong with the champion.
"His need to win drains him of power" said the Zen Master.
