When you make comparisons to other athletes, you’re focusing on what makes your competitors better and what you are missing. You’re thinking of what’s wrong with you, which is not good for your confidence. It’s likely you don’t have enough confidence in your own skills to believe you can compete with the best athletes in your sport.
First, don’t look at your opponents during the warm-up to see how they’re doing or what they’re doing to prepare. Focus on your warm-up routine. Focus on what you need to do to get your job done. Second, don’t put your opponents on a pedestal. When you put them on a pedestal, you look up to them and assume they are the best. You are in awe of them.
