Michael Jordan said it best, “If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
We assist players to win the mental game of basketball from playground to NBA.
- Realize that your thoughts direct your body’s actions when you shoot and handle the ball. The mind always tells the body what to do with actions like defending the offensive player with the ball. So is your mind helping you win basketball games with more buckets, assists or just making you frustrated?
- Whether you are a little league, college or NBA Pro basketball player, there is always room for improvement on offense and defense on the mental side of a basketball game. Without mental confidence, new basketball shoes won’t make a difference.
- Fear is causing you to choke and miss the basket. The anxiety of not driving the lane causing you to pass the ball off keeps you frustrated preseason to the finals.
- Even a lack of confidence could be covering an underlying fear in your shooting that keeps you from taking the shot. It could be the fear of missing, fear of being humiliated and made fun of, fear of being injured, or just the fear of failing in the game of basketball. (Sports hypnosis).
