There are going to be those days. When it feels like you can’t do anything right, everyone seems
better than you, and your confidence is definitely down, my advice is: don’t worry- it happens to all
of us. And here are a few ways to help you move past it:
Gratitude. It may not be easy at first but look at the positives you’ve got going on. Be grateful that
you get to play the game you love, have teammates you’re friends with, and get to challenge
yourself and compete. Gratitude is the quickest way to get rid of negative feelings a reset your mind.
Focus on the next opportunity. If you messed up on the last play or even if the whole last game was
a disaster, focus on the next play or the next game. Don’t dwell on the past, and instead put all your
energy into making sure your next opportunity is successful. Remember, failure is just a learning
experience so that you can improve for next time.
Visualize overcoming the obstacle. Sometimes you’re going through a bad time and it feels like
you’ll never get better and this is how you’ll always feel- but it’s not true. That’s why it’s important to
visualize yourself on the other side of the situation where you are victorious and confident. Visualize
how you’ll feel, what plays you’ll make and when it’ll happen.
You’ve got what it takes. Don’t focus on the bad, only focus on the Good!!!
