You Don’t Have to Believe in Mental Imagery. It Works Anyway.

I read an interesting report by Dr. Jonathan Parker titled Visualization and Mental Imagery.  It details three reasons why imagery works.

The full report is available for members, but below is the first one of the three reasons.

In my opinion this component is the most important of the three, but like anything else, for best results you should really get all the working parts.

Get my drift?

Anyway…  Imagery works because images are events to the body.

Mental Strength Tip: Confidence Equals Concentration

I interviewed a world-renowned sport psychologist a few days ago, Dr. Alan Goldberg.

Dr. Goldberg worked with the UConn Huskies basketball team in 1999 when they won the National Championship over Duke.

Needless to say he knows his stuff.

Dr. Goldberg suggested that your confidence is determined by what you are concentrating on.

For example…

Do you see the distractions in the stands?

Does your mind wander from place to place; looking at the guys walking around the stadium or checking out the cute girls courtside?

Or, do you think about the way you double-faulted on that last big point?
