Superstitions In Sports
Do you have to wear the same lucky jersey or shirt every game? Do you have to eat a certain meal before you perform? Many athletes have superstitions they must adhere to–as if their performance would crumble without them…
Superstitions in sports are based only on past luck. If something worked in the past before competition, you think you will have good luck using it again and again–of course until it doesn’t work anymore.
My tip for today is to develop a pregame routine that helps you perform your best. Pregame routines, unlike superstitions, are based on science and what works.
In the video of the week below, I discuss one athlete’s obsession with superstitions and the best way to approach superstitions… After you watch the video please comment on what your superstitions are and how they affect your game.
