For some players, confidence can be very fragile. For example, if they make just one mistake they can lose confidence quickly. You’ll want your athletes to be aware of the top ways they lose confidence in their game.
You also want to focus on specific beliefs players maintain that limit their success, such as unreasonably high expectations they might have. The following are four common categories of unhealthy beliefs that can have a negative impact on your player’s self confidence:
1. Unrealistic expectations – “I can’t make any mistakes because if I do, I will let my team down.”
2. Negative self-labels – “I am not a good hitter.”
3. Over-generalizations – “I can never hit well off of a faster pitcher.”
4. Other irrational beliefs –”I have to be perfect.”
