How to be succesful in sports

July 26, 2009


One of the wonderful things in our society is sports.  From professional athletes all the way down to little kids.We get the thrill of it all.  One thing about sports though, no matter how gifted you are it’s still very mental.

What do I mean by that?  We have all seen very gifted athletes who couldn’t make it.When you try to determine why, quite a few times it will be because of their mental state.  I know this for a fact helping a lot of athletes doing sports psychology in San Diego.  At each level you are going to reach a point where everyone is pretty good.The ones that are able to conquer the mental game will be the successful ones.

A majority of the times what holds back an athlete from success is the mental attitude they have.  We see extreme cases in pro sports where promising stars just can’t do it anymore.

But we also know about the cases where a struggling athelete who hired a sports psychologist suddenly turned it around.

In golf, Tiger Woods is hands down the best goler our there in terms of his mental game.  Yes he has an excellent game.  But it is amazing to watch his competitors wilt under pressure when playing him.  Very good case in point of how mental sports are.

So for those people that want to go to a career in professional sports, they need to begin in high school.By beginning in high school, what I mean is to be sure that they tune their mental game into top form.If they feel they need to, they need to go and hire a therapist.  I get hired all the time to do teen therapy in San Diego to help young athletes. 

When you boil it down to who will make it big or just be a regular, it definitely is all the difference in the world.So if you are experiencing struggles in sports, examine yourself.The majority of the physical struggles we experience are due to the mental struggles. Hiring someone like a family counselor in San Diego can change that.
