Training your body and your mind go hand in hand when it comes to achieving your goals as an athlete. Positive attitudes you have toward yourself and your progress have a powerful influence on your performance.

Learning to accept failure, set goals and slow down will help you to center yourself and unlock your full potential.

Actionable advice:

To be successful keep your mind in the present.

It’s when your mind and body are working together seamlessly that you’re really in the moment.

Focusing on the present will alleviate any pressure you experience. With no anxieties about the future or ruminations on the past, you can become totally absorbed in the task at hand.

Pay attention to the skill you’re working on, and save the judgment and analysis for later.

Enjoy the present moment, don’t rush through it, and you’ll give your focus and fulfillment a significant boost.
