8. Play The Mental Game, Too
The best athletes in the world train not only their bodies, but their minds, for success in their sport. Why not take a page from their playbooks and do the same?
Visualize your goals, and visualize yourself achieving those goals. Imagine the emotions you might experience during a competition, and think how you can prepare for them. Visualize possible setbacks and visualize how you’ll overcome them.
Visualize your success. Now give yourself an imaginary high-five.
