Even before we start an activity, we can often find a number of reasons for failure - doubt, bad weather, lack of practice, tiredness, anxiety, stress - and find ourselves living up (or 'down') to our expectations.
Essentially, we can find ourselves performing badly because we are not using our minds in a positive way. As a result, we can form limiting beliefs about ourselves which leave us expecting failure rather than success.
By changing how we use our minds when we approach a game - by enhancing self-belief, dealing with how we respond to committing errors, setting goals and maintaining a positive attitude - it is possible to make a significant impact on our performance levels.
