Focussing To Win! Sport Mental Skills

Do you ever find that you perform better in training than you do in competition? Or that you focus on winning and believe in your ability to perform well, but you don't achieve the success you expect? Sometimes we can be so focussed on the results or the outcome that we end up getting distracted from performing at our best, and this ends up costing us the outcome we wanted.

Successful athletes are able to motivate themselves with success-related goals, then they focus on the process of performing well when they compete. This allows them to concentrate on the task at hand, and give themselves the best shot at achieving the results they want. This video explains how to go about breaking down your focus on winning, so you can focus AND win.
