November 2, 2021 3:50 pm Published by

One of the most difficult aspects of sports is maintaining a positive, healthy attitude when times are tough. It is easy to let a negative thought snowball into a bad attitude and let it impact your game. Here are a few tips to keeping a healthy mindset:

  • Practice a Solution-Focused Mindset
    • Rather than focusing on what you did wrong, focus on what you could do, and will do right the next opportunity!
  • 30 Second Rule
    • Allow yourself to be angry/upset for no more than 30 seconds. Once 30 seconds is up, let the thought float away and move on. We love the phrase “short memory”.
  • Positive Self Talk
    • Talk to yourself in a positive tone. Whatever you would say to a teammate in your situation, say it to yourself!

Mistakes are a huge part of the game. Focus on your controllable SKILLS: Attitude, effort, mindset!
