You have to learn to pace yourself
Pressure
You're just like everybody else
Pressure
You've only had to run so far
So good
But you will come to a place
Where the only thing you feel
Are loaded guns in your face
And you'll have to deal with
Pressure

Leaders in all organizations must take responsibility for recognizing when someone is feeling overwhelmed to the point of exhaustion or paralysis, and to understand that this is only a response, and not a failing or weakness. We need to encourage a culture that views managing pressure as being as important as servicing a car -- vital to keep it operating smoothly and reliably.

Individuals who falter less under pressure than others have a different road map for handling pressure.... Your natural tools are your thoughts, physiological responses, body movements, voice, and senses. They determine how you handle pressure, regardless of your level of expertise, abilities, or good intentions. People who are less susceptible to pressure's negative effects use these tools much more effectively than those who are overwhelmed by pressure. In a pressure moment, they use them to counteract pressure's negative effects.
