NJ Peak Performance

  Mental Skills Training builds mastery of the psychological states and skills necessary for performance enhancement. It contributes to emotional control and self-confidence. It furthers the athlete to achieve levels beyond physical and technical training alone.

Today is the big day.  This is the day that you have been preparing for.  You have committed enormous hours. 

You have trained repetitively to develop skills, speed and strength.

You wake-up feeling jittery. 

Self-doubt creeps in:
“I have had a good week of practice, but will I be able to perform at my best when I need to the most?” 

Worry becomes more apparent: 
“What if I don’t achieve a personal best?”

You feel fearful.  Your heart beats faster, breathing gets shallower, and muscles become increasingly tense:
“What if I commit the same errors as last time?” 

You get distracted by thoughts regarding the venue, the time, the weather, the opponents, the officials, and the crowd.

Tension builds:
“I must succeed.  I can’t mess up.”

You visualize disappointment. 

You are preparing to fail.
