Do you focus on everything that could go wrong in a competition and then stress out and lose your confidence? In my video this week I’m going to talk about how you can stay more mentally tough prior to a game or leading up to a competition and not catastrophize.
Here’s the question Dr. Patrick Cohn answers this week:
CHRIS ASKS:”I’m a ice hockey goalie and I keep recalling the times when I did not prepare well and I got benched. Ironically, I’m doing the same thing right now before I got benched before. I think the competition is too good, I can’t beat them. When I go on the ice I can’t play my best. I lose the game before it starts. I predict that I’m going to be out-shot, or I’m going to blow it because my team is not outmatching the other team. How can I have more mental strength before games?”
