Praise is intimidating. When you see the height of the pedestal they prepare for you without preparing you for the ride up, you begin to waiver, even if only in your mind. You step a lot more carefully when you're made aware of the eyes that never stray from the sight of you. Praise changes you. You feel a lot less free to try and fail, every move must strike gold. Don't let praise alter your stride. Easily said, not so easily done.
