The Element That Sets Elite Athletes Apart From Average: The Mindset

All experienced coaches and athletes know very well how much mindset matters in tournaments. Both sides, if experienced, know that enough attention cannot be given to mindset, as it deserves. However, both sides decide on the success of athletes in the short and long term.

Although physical and technical preparation through training is very important, many competitors and coaches will agree with me that competition is 80% mental. Mental strength and confidence play a huge role for everyone, and ultimately, it’s what sets elite athletes apart from the rest. In the whole story about mindset, everything can be summed up as believing in oneself. Only self-confidence can be built through hard work in training, believing in the coach, and in the learning and progress process.

If anything is lacking, it’s difficult for the competitor to build the confidence that is crucial for success.

Confidence is crucial because athletes must enter the competition with the belief that they possess the knowledge and skills necessary to overcome any obstacles. This confidence certainly doesn’t come overnight; it is developed through a relentless pursuit of improvement. Competitors must set themselves bigger and bigger goals and successfully achieve those goals with their coach to contribute to building confidence and mental resilience.

When we talk about mindset, we’re not just talking about individual performance; we’re talking about fostering a winning mentality throughout the team.

Experienced coaches know how important it is to create such a mentality in their competitive team so that their competitors are successful both mentally and physically.

If coaches manage to instill faith in success, such teams certainly rise to another, higher level.
