Achieving Excellence Through Non- Judgement, Acceptance and the Growth Mindset
In sports, a strong value is placed on tenacity and achievement. Athletes train hard, practice regularly and focus on improvement. With such a strong focus on reaching the next level, athletes often become critical of their mistakes and forget to acknowledge their accomplishments. This mindset can hurt not only performance, but also confidence and resilience. Sport and performance psychologists have found that there is a more advantageous way of thinking which can result in enhanced performance.
