There are a number of myths that surround mindset skills for sport. And we will uncover those top 4 myths here in this episode.
What stills happens today is that many athletes consider that mindset training, mental skills training or sports pyschology as a stigma, stating that there must be something wrong with them if they need to be working on their mindset.
I had that too! When I was 19 years old pursuing my professional tennis career,'I thought there was something wrong with me', because I was struggling in competition and tournaments. I worked my butt off but still couldn't compete the way I wanted to do.
And what was wrong with me at that time was that I was closed off! I was closed off to learning how to improve. I had a poor mindset approach to competing and myself in general. I had what you call a fixed mindset. I was so fixed on my ideas of what I should be, that I was so closed off to learning. I was frightened to work on my mindset. I didn't know at that time it was my mindset that was holding me back, but I was fearful of working on my mind because in my head, I thought if I need help then there is definitely something wrong with me.
