Postive Talk - Sports Psychology

As great way of providing motivation, I would suggest that positive talk should be used for all athletes. The rule here is that all statements to others and to oneself should have a positive slant to them. Self belief is a powerful tool to any athlete, and keeping positive will reinforce and strengthen this self belief.

Statements such as “I can’t go on, I have no energy left” should be changed to “this is hard, it must be the ‘wall’, and when I get past this it will get easier.”
