Sports Confidence Buster #10
Do you beat yourself up after competitions and only focus on your mistakes? Self-criticism hurts an athlete but the effect of criticism is doubled when it comes from within the athlete’s mind.
Being self-critical is the quickest way to shatter confidence.
Many times, athletes describe themselves as being their own biggest critic. This mindset is viewed by some in a positive light meaning that this type of athlete pushes to be perfect and nothing less is sufficient.
However self-criticism never pushes an athlete towards excellence. Self-criticism post competition sends the message that you are not good enough and, no matter what you accomplish, that is not good enough either.

What are customers saying?
Confident Athlete workbook programs have worked absolutely wonderfully
for me! The quality of my shots has improved 1,000 percent, and my
scores are consistently lower, by far! Also, I have a sense of peace,
and quality enjoyment of the game that had been sorely missing. I love
it! Great work Dr. Cohn! Thank You!”
son finished the entire Confident Athlete Program. The CD Program
helped TREMENDOUSLY. He used it to keep positive thoughts flowing. He
was able to focus on his fight instead of on his negative thoughts. He
fought at his very best. We are thankful to God for leading us to your
website. The CONFIDENT ATHLETE was perfect.“

have just completed ‘The Confident Athlete and The Focused Athlete’
programs. What a major difference your programs have made to me. I was
thinking I wasn’t good enough and almost gave the game up. Your web site
was recommended to me by another athlete (a shooter) and was the best
thing that happened to my mental game. I started to get excited for the
first time in a long while and the program was so much fun to do. These
programs really work and I would have no hesitation in recommending them
to anyone, (although I don’t want my fellow competitors to know about
them).” Thank you so very much for providing a Mental Training Program,
which is the best I have come across, having tried many other tapes,

with your great instruction on the mental game, I had the best
nationals I have ever had. And even more important, I got through the
five days relaxed and had fun – a new concept in my life! The bottom
line – I got five firsts and one second! Thank you! You are just what I
