    Helping Athletes Take Practice Skills to Competition Consistently

    Helping Athletes Take Practice Skills to Competition Consistently

    Do you look like a star in practice, but choke up in competition? Does your performance feel tight, controlled, or lack of freedom when you compete? Many hard-working athletes who get lots of confidence from practice get in their own way (mentally) when they compete…
    Why do athletes tense up and lose trust in their skills when they compete? Many athletes I work with continue “training” when they compete. They continue with a “practice mindset” in competition. They worry more about how it looks and feels than getting the job done. If you or your athletes do this, you must learn to separate your practice from your performance.

    Cope with Pregame Anxiety for Athletes

    Cope with Pregame Anxiety for Athletes

    Do you ever get butterflies in your stomach before you compete called pregame jitters? Do you get really nervous before the start of a big match or game and can’t relax after the game starts? Most athletes have felt the negative effects of pressure during their athletic career.
    Even the best athletes feel pressure before a big game, but they know how to channel the pressure into positive intensity to boost performance. What is pressure and how do athletes experience it?
    Pressure is a perceived expectation of the need to perform well under challenging situations. Fear of failure and expectation is tied to pressure. When an athletes worries about disappointing others, for examples, he or she is putting pressure on him or herself to not fail or look silly.

    Perfectionist Athletes Who are Highly Critical Post Competition

    Do you or your athletes only focus on mistakes after competition? Do you criticize your performance instead of learn from it? Or do you disqualify the positive?

    Perfectionist Athletes Who Are Highly Judgemental

    Perfectionist Athletes Who Are Highly Judgemental

    One of the qualities of perfectionist athletes is the fact that they judge their performance extremely harshly. They are very self-critical.
    Very high level perfectionists want their performance to look good and feel good in order to get the desired results. When they don’t get these results they feel they aren’t performing up to their expectations.
    To perform better in competition, perfectionists need to learn how to stop judging their performance.
    Listen to this week’s mental training podcast and learn to overcome this highly judgmental behavior.

    How to Overcome Lack of Trust in Skills

    How to Overcome Lack of Trust in Skills

    One of the biggest challenges for perfectionists is the lack of trust in their skills…
    Lack of trust in skills is the reason perfectionists tend to under perform in competition–compared to practice.
    Perfectionism leads to:
    –Over thinking
    –Stuck in a practice mindset
    –Worry about what others think
    –Outcome and aftermath thinking
    –Anxiety, tentative play, and indecision
    All of these prevent the perfectionist from performing with trust in competition–and you can see it on their face or in the performance.
