    Why Athletes Worry too Much About What Others Think

    Why Athletes Worry too Much About What Others Think

    Do you tend to worry too much about what others think of your performance? As mental game experts, we know that athletes often get preoccupied with "outcome thinking," and tend to play too safely or cautiously as a result. Athletes need to learn to shift their attention from other players and, instead, focus on their own play.

    In this podcast, Dr. Cohn speaks about skills you can use to focus your attention on what really matters during the game and avoid comparisons with other players.

    Don't Let Adversity Affect Your Game

    Don't Let Adversity Affect Your Game

    Are you an athlete who struggles with fear of failure in competition?

    Many athletes spend too much time dwelling on their mistakes, feeling that past mistakes define their future play.

    When too much pressure is placed on winning, rather than on improvement, sports can start feeling like work rather than fun, especially for sports kids.

    Dr. Cohn speaks with basketball Coaches Jim Huber and Charlie Miller on how athletes can work through their mistakes and bounce back from adversity in their play.
