How do you think before an events?

Wanting to spend all your time thinking about what you are going to do, not what is going to happen. That works. I’m sure it works.

Too often athletes think about the outcome they want to achieve, they tell themselves, “I’m going to jump that measure, I’m going to take that shot, I’m going to make that point, I’m going to score a goal.” These thoughts structure the future but say nothing about what the athlete will do.

The goal is to focus on what you want to do, which corresponds to doing what you know how to do. This mental approach stimulates belief, which in turn is based precisely on positive past experiences. Thus, training in the competition period should be about mostly repeating what you know how to do; you certainly do not want to put doubts in your mind before a competition.

How many work in this way, and how many, on the other hand, until the last day are committed to making corrections? How can one have a strong belief in one’s skills if until the last day one is working on flaws?

You improve not only by perfecting your skills but also by doing more and more of what you know how to do. And how can this happen if training always poses new challenges and never emphasizes continuity?

I hope I have provided some food for thought.
