Sports Improvement-Improve your mind and your game

Mar 20, 2008
Every athlete, in every sport gets nervous before a game or has a game day superstition. Some of the questions running through their minds are, what if we lose, what if I mess up, or worse injury! These thoughts become so powerful and can take over a players mind. No one wants to say they had a bad game. Everyone wants to be at their physical and mental best while performing, however sometimes this is difficult to achieve without help.

Everyone wants to be in peak condition, no one wants to think about their flaws. A basketball player might think they are not fast enough or they are too short. Sure you might be short that can't be fixed, but if you know how the game is played, it can help you. Not every basketball player is seven foot. If you are not fast enough, this can be fixed through both physical and mental workouts. First you need to figure out mentally why you can not run fast, maybe it was a forgotten memory from long ago or simply a learned behavior. Maybe your coach in pee-wee was always telling you that you were too slow and it was embarrassing. Now as a grownup, you still hear this coach in your head you are too slow. This is a learned behavior and over coming this belief can be difficult alone.

A baseball player doesn't hit 5 homeruns in a row because he was lucky, he is focused. When you are not focused and in the "zone" it is difficult to perform at your best. Focus can be lost for many reasons. Maybe there is pressure from fans or parents, a loud negative person on the court or in the stands, or maybe you simply psyched yourself out before the game even started by worrying you would have a bad game. Identifying what makes you lose focus, and learning new tricks to keep focus, you can become unstoppable and not lucky, but focused.

A sport such as swimming ultimately is all about skill. It is not about who got a good call, but who is simply better, which it true of many other sports. If you can learn to improve your skill level mentally, the physical improvements will fall into place allowing you to create your own luck. By learning different cues mentally, you can teach your body how to be on point and improve your skill level. When your mind has powerful successes they become easier to recreate during the game.

The ultimate athlete loves himself, his team and the game. This love builds a better, stronger, more valuable athlete. If you are constantly worrying about how you did in the game or how bad your team mate is then you are doing yourself, your team and the sport a disservice. If you were always told how bad you are at something or how if you teammate would have just passed you the ball you could have won, you are allowing these experiences to take over the game. You are no longer the best you can be. Once you learn how to deal with these feelings and memories, you will become an amazing athlete.

Sure you can work out at the gym for hours on end to improve your skills, or you can try to focus on something else during the game, but you have not really dealt with the issue. Hypnosis is one way of achieving all of these things and more. It will identify what skills you have and how to develop them without negative energy. You can also learn how to focus your energy on the game instead of an obnoxious fan. All of these things are distractions and they can hinder your progress as an athlete. While under hypnosis your mind is more relaxed and open to suggestions, you will not longer have the feeling you are sabotaging yourself.

Sports, simply always be a fun, happy experience.You should not have to experience a worthless, anxious, or distracted feeling before you begin a game. Sure you can try other things but there is no reason to try those things when there is one good treatment for it. You know what works for you and your lifestyle, make your choice, just do it.
