Confidence Is A Mindset.
It’s common for athletes to believe that confidence comes as a result of success. But in order to grow our confidence MUST be shaken. So what to do then?
Ultimately, confidence is a mindset. And, as you might have guessed, your mindset can be trained.
Confidence isn’t something that happens to us, it’s something we choose to invest in.
This toolbox will help your athletes build real, bulletproof, lifelong confidence that is based on internal belief and self-alignment, not on conditions or ego. The habits taught in this toolbox will rewire the mindset of your athletes and teach them that THEY are in control of how they perceive themselves. This knowledge will then lead them to believe in themselves on a deeper level so they can 'go for it' on the playing field and off.
Signs Your Athlete May Be Struggling With Low Confidence
Self-deprecating or humiliated when they perform poorly.
Heavy focus on the outcome, even if they performed well.
Appear emotionally unstable or even frantic during competition.
Indirectly or directly ask for a lot of positive reinforcement.
Speak negatively about themselves and in absolutes. (i.e. "I just suck at that" or "I always mess that up").
Put their failure on other people, i.e. “The ref made a bad call”or “I would have made the shot if you had done your job”
Avoid challenge for fear of failure.
Afraid to set big goals or any goals at all.
Not believe in themselves enough.
Unrealistically hard on themselves.
