Does your Game have an Invisible Ceiling?

Outcome and Expectation

When we are young our sport environment bestows upon us certain beliefs and expectations that may encourage or discourage our  personal growth in many aspects of  life and sports. Our sport environment and genetic make up are major contributors in achieving  elite athletic potential.While having Lebron’s genes and training with professional trainers can make a huge contribution to your success on the court, maybe the most important factor in your athletic growth could be your personal beliefs.

Personal beliefs can be both positive or negative, arise from many sources and eventually they can become your reality. As we attach a negative belief to a certain experience like missing a jump shot we start to limit ourselves and believe in the negative outcome as truth in our sub-conscious.

We must refocus our efforts as individuals back upon self reliance and  managing personal expectations with realistic  and positive work ethic.

Dismantling limiting beliefs that put invisible ceilings on our own game by positive expectations,passion and effort. Train to avoid the negative belief or reaction as a form of self practice and re-shift focus to positive outcome.
