Controlling the Controllables……
In sport as in life we need to spend less time focusing on things we can’t control and more on controlling the controllables.
We need to be able to focus our energy on our performance
Things we CANNOT control….
Our opponents’ tactics, skill levels or fitness
The referees or officials’ decisions
The weather or condition of pitches
The start time of games or events
The location or facilities of games or events
Things we ABSOLUTELY CAN control…….
Our Nutrition, hydration, rest and recovery, Sleep (although people with small children might not agree!!!)
Our honesty with ourselves and our coaches and teammates
Who we listen to and learn from (are they in it for you or themselves?)
Our reasons for playing or competing
If we focus on the controllables and perform to our very best every time
The results will follow.
Any questions just shout!
