What is required to excel in sports is often asked by individuals and teams alike. The common answers are:
The questions that constantly sports persons ask are:
The how to part seems to elude but a few. Most only keep on trying, never knowing why they could not excel.
Excelling in sports requires simple understanding, simple solutions and finally simple application of the available knowledge.
All these can be achieved simply by:
PROPER ACTION & PROPER ATTITUDE.
It is these two alone that determine whether you excel or not.
Mental skills like physical skills require practice and game time application to develop.
Mental barriers include high expectations, perfectionism, fear of failure, lack of
emotional control etc.
The control of the mind is more difficult than the control of physical skill. However, if dealt with properly the control of the mind can be achieved over a period of time.
After speaking to lots of sports persons in Delhi and the whole of India, I understood that they were not very keen for mental training as they felt it was weird or boring or something that made them feel that they were not normal.This is the perception they had.
However once the sports persons from Delhi and many parts of India started coming for my mental training classes, be it the sports shooters, cricketers, tennis players, golfers or others, they found mental training to be actually a game. Since the sports persons take to all games, as a fish takes to water, mind control became an interesting inner game that they could play and strengthen their mental skills.
Few of the important mental skills that sports persons need to acquire are:
1. To prepare mentally during practice as if it’s a real match.
2. To understand and maintain a winning mind set on the day of competition.
3. Managing your thoughts before, during and after competition.
4. Dealing with distractions on court.
5. Developing the courage to win.
6. Building resilience in the face of setbacks during and after competition.
7. Proper attitude towards life in general.
My results with sports persons in Delhi, India have vindicated my belief that mental
training has to be made into a game for it show great results.
Let the mind games begin !!!
