EPISODE SIXTY EIGHT
“if you do not believe you can do it, then you have no chance at all” – Arsene Wenger
Why are athletes successful? Why do they fulfill their potential in sports? Is because they are talented? Is it because they are strong and fit? Is it because they work hard?
Well it is all of the above but more importantly it is because they believe in themselves with regards to all of the above.
Self confidence is the beginning and the end. The only way you succeed in sports is if you believe you can.
Pretty simple right? Not so fast.
Many athletes do not even know that they lack self confidence. They think its something else. Most of the pressure that athletes are under is due to the fact that they lack belief.
Do you lack belief in your abilities?
Maybe that’s why you have not succeeded much.
Episode 68 expands on the topic of self confidence, what it is, why its important and how you can build and work on yours.
ACTION FOR TODAY
Believe in what you have and be willing to work tirelessly to improve. Even when others don’t believe in you, you have to believe in yourself.
Before, during and after your training or matches, tell yourself you are good enough to be here. You deserve the spot you have and you will work to stay there.
