Making Mountains Into Molehills - Reducing the Importance to Perform
Is winning and losing life or death in sport? Nah, but that is often how we feel in the moment. Humans often catastrophize the consequences of a performance and it creates much stress and anxiety. Why is that? We discuss it in sport in general and as a rampant condition in tennis post-COVID tournament shutdown. If it's such a part of our thinking how do we move away from it? We cover how to reframe and refocus so that we can minmize the consequences of winning and losing, and help players best prepare to perform with composure, confidence and resilience.
