Performance Obstacles

Competing is challenging enough when it’s against an opponent, or the clock. Yet many athletes create additional, self-imposed obstacles that can interfere with performance and rob them of the natural pleasure competing should bring. Developing strong Mental Mechanics can help athletes conquer the obstacles that can get in their way. Some examples of the obstacles we help athletes overcome at Mind’s Eye Sports Performance include:

Mental

Perfectionism, psyching out, blocks, lapses in concentration, poor focus

Emotional

Anger, fear, anxiety, frustration, apathy

Behavioral

Hesitancy, trying too hard, avoidance, not taking chances, quitting

Limiting Beliefs

“I can’t do this.” “I’m not good enough.” “I’ll embarrass myself.”
