Get out of the slump & back in the game
- Do you perform better in training than the big game?
- Have you ever frozen or ‘zoned out’ when it matters most?
You have probably heard the famous quote before, sports performance is:
“90% mental and 10% physical”
Professional athletes have known this for decades. They achieve their goals because they have a positive attitude that they WILL succeed. They tell themselves that they can thrive and visualize themselves achieving their goal.
You could train constantly, but if your mind is not in the right place, it can hold you back every time.
When the pressure is on many athletes and sports people fail to perform. They suffer not from lack of skill or technical knowledge. What really affects their performance is negativity, mental blocks, panic attacks or focusing too much on past mistakes.
What’s holding you back?
Our mind can have a big impact on our body and how we feel. If you have a negative attitude about your ability to perform, this will have an affect on you physically.
