Here’s the question Dr. Cohn answers this week about being confident in both practice and competition:

JOHN ASKS: “I play golf and my confidence is usually high when I practice but when I go to play around for a score in a tournament I tend to doubt myself often and feel I can’t hit my shots as well as I can in a practice situation. How do I take my practice confidence to tournaments?”

Watch the video below to hear what Dr. Cohn has to say to John about how to improve his confidence when in competition.

“The Confident Athlete” consists of 2 audio programs that include 14 days of confidence fueling exercises and a simple to follow workbook that guides you through the 14 days, helps you apply the strategies, and customizes the exercises to your personal needs.

Let me help you put a stop to the confidence leak. You can learn to have greater levels of confidence in competition than you do in practice by identifying the specific ways you undermine your own confidence and how to convert your practice confidence into COMPETITIVE CONFIDENCE.

“The Confident Athlete” is a ground-breaking system to teach you how to think like a champion and have ultimate self-confidence every time you step on the playing field, court, track, or course. The confident athletes was developed for any athlete – junior to professional –that wants to gain confidence. However, coaches and sports parents can learn how to teach others to perform with ultimate confidence. Use my program if you want to bust a slump or just wanting higher or more consistent levels of self-confidence.
