Why should I train mentally?

Many athletes and coaches still do not understand this simple concept.

“Psychological skills training refers to the systematic and consistent practice of psychological or mental skills for the purpose of increasing performance, enhancing enjoyment, or achieving high levels of satisfaction in sport and physical activity.”

Instead, many have a conception based on:

  1. Talent doesn’t need it
  2. I don’t need it for now
  3. It’s not for me
  4. I should just have a little more confidence
  5. The important thing is the training
  6. These are things that you learn when you compete
  7. I only need one experience
  8. I already have a coach who tells me what to do
  9. I tried that and it didn’t help
  10. I already know what to do
