Confidence is the belief in your ability and it can include two areas: a general belief in your ability to win; and a task-specific belief in your ability to hit a shot, catch, ride, and strategize. How do athletes develop confidence prior to competition?
Confidence comes from many sources and it varies from person to person. Most athletes get confidence from one or more of the following: (1) past success, (2) experience, (3) performing well in the immediate past, (4) other persons, (5) practice, and (6) having a good support team.
Visualize yourself performing well before you compete. With the vision of success, comes confidence that it is possible. Recall a successful performance you had in the past to help you in today’s competition.
