Does working hard guarantee success?

Working hard and training hard will give you some success.

As you work and train hard, your body grows and adapts as do your technical skills and abilities giving you some confidence in your ability to play well.

But…there’s another aspect of performance that many athletes pay little attention to. There’s an aspect that can give you a boost in performance just at the right moment, but in the same breath, can destroy you.

The aspect of performance we are talking about is the mind. Your mind is the most powerful tool you have yet to unleash.

“YOUR SUCCESS IS DETERMINED BY YOUR PERCEPTION OF A SITUATION AND HOW YOU BEHAVE IN THAT SITUATION”

Be honest with yourself. Have you always given your all in every game you’ve competed?

TASK – To find success you must prime your mind to focus on the right things at the right time without any distractions.

Next time you’re competing and you have a break in play, be mindful to ask yourself “What can I do to differently to improve my chances?”
