Top performance requires mental training…
Ask any coach what distinguishes a good athlete from a great one and they’ll tell you that great athletes are both physically and mentally trained.
In fact, mental training or the mind games we play with ourselves is one of the most overlooked aspects of a well-rounded training program.
We give the topic a lot of lip service but rarely do we actively engage in training to make us mentally stronger.
Here’s my 5 Easy Steps to Master Mental Training:
Enjoying yourself in sport is more important than…
…any race place finish could be … and it is the surest way to perform well.
Determination stems directly from our mental fortitude…
…to try as hard as we can from start to finish.
We experience determination on different levels everyday.
Optimism plays a significant role in the success…
…of all our endeavors, especially in sports.
People who are optimistic learn to expect positive outcomes regardless of the situation.
Confidence in sport is achieved though success.
Often we feel a greater sense of self worth when we are confident and a diminished sense of ability when we aren’t.
Mental training is so important if you’re…
…looking to be a top performer.
The first mental training tip I want to review is awareness.
