Sport Psychology

 Sport psychology involves preparing the mind of an athlete, just as thoroughly as one prepares the body. Sport psychology is an emerging field in the worlds of psychology and athletics. For many elite-level, professional, recreational, and even youth athletes, successful performances, cannot simply be reduced to superior physical performance.

 

Instead, performance in any endeavor, is largely contingent upon mental preparation and psychological strength. Just as you prepared for competition by practicing physical skill as well as increasing your strength and endurance, you must also prepare yourself mentally. This includes setting clear, short-term goals, entertaining positive thoughts, using self affirmations, imagery, negative thought stopping, etc.

 


 

In a world dominated by competition and pressure to succeed, little attention is paid to the role of mental attitude in enhancing an individual’s performance. It is accepted knowledge that competitive athletes, successful business people, and performing artists all strive to do their best. The desire to maximize their potential is admirable, but how many people understand the role that their mind and thoughts play in their ability to achieve their goals? Research has shown that the most successful individuals in their field have placed a major emphasis on the mental aspects of their performance and their goal setting skills.
