Believing In Yourself

Believing In Yourself


Do you struggle with confidence? Do you worry about what others are thinking of you? Do you feel like you aren’t good enough or deserving of playing time?

Developing and improving one’s confidence is the top concern of athletes from all sports, and one of the main reasons that athletes seek professional help with their mental preparation and toughness.

We have aligned this section on confidence with the “Thinking” and “Feeling” areas of our Performance Model because confidence is deeply rooted in how you interpret and allow other people’s thoughts to affect your own. Feeling confident is a direct result of how and what you think of yourself.

Can you think of other successes that you’ve had?

Write it down!

As you continue to list your successes, remember to go back and read your previous successes. Sometimes we need a reminder of how great we are to boost our confidence.

N O T E : The point of creating a success list isn’t to go around telling everyone how good you are – it is for YOU – to help you maintain a healthy level of confidence and self-belief that you are no less than everyone else (and no greater than either)!
