Here are 3 TOTALLY NOT TRUE PERCEPTIONS I have been hearing lately
Mindset is like talent - either have it or you don’t
This is 100% UNTRUE! Mindset is a SKILL. Just like skating or shooting, your mindset is something you can train, develop, improve and master!
You can only practice your hockey mindset when you are playing hockey.
This is 100% UNTRUE! The best place to start learning and applying mindset strategies is AWAY from the arena.
Mindset is the same as visualization
This is 100% UNTRUE! Visualization is one of MANY mindset tools. Mindset helps you manage adversity, embrace mistakes, stay focused, manage emotions, capitalize on training opportunities, build confidence, establish elite standards, and many more!
Ready to do things differently?
MOST players focus ONLY on their physical development. They shoot pucks, lift weights and do track work. BUT the top professionals know that your PEAK POTENTIAL is much more than physical – Peak potential is also about MINDSET!
How much more? That’s to be debated, but I would suggest the mental part of the game is at least 50% of the equation!
So if MINDSET is at least 50% of reaching your potential, why do most players spend 0% of their time developing it?
This is the competitive edge players are looking for!
