Fighting Anxiety In Sports Performance With Raven Magwood


Anxiety In Sports Performance
http://www.sportsmentaltoughness.com Trembling, tremors, unsteadiness, body getting
weak, pounding heart and sweating, these are just some of the symptoms that an athlete
is experiencing anxiety in sports. We all know how this can affect their focus
and concentration during the competition and how crucial it is for them to feel uneasy,
causing them to lack confidence and lose the game. This is Part 2 of the series interview with
Raven Magwood, a teenage author, motivational speaker, and TV talk show host. She is the author of the book, “On to Victory! The Winning Edge”, “Double-Sided” and “The
7 Practices of Exceptional Student Athletes” In this video Raven will discuss how an athlete
can stay positive to overcome anxiety in sports performance. I would always get so nervous. I would be awesome in practice then I would
shake and I would throw up before competitions, because I got so nervous. That is when I learned positive self-talk
and taking those deep breathes saying, “Raven calm down.” I would visualize myself in practice and say,
“This is just like practice. You can do this. I can do this.” I would tell that to myself over and over
again, taking deep breaths saying, “I can do this.” Deep breath, “I can do this.” Now I have a saying that I tell all my athletes
and students to repeat it to themselves, “I am a ten. I walk like a ten. I talk like a ten. I get what I want, when I want it, because
I always do what I ought to do, when I ought to do it. I am healthy, I am wealthy, I am smart, and
I am strong. I am a ten.” I do that all the time with my student athletes
and they love it. I have little bracelets I sell on my website
that have an “I am a ten” on it because it is such a powerful thing to tell yourself. I am a ten. When you go into competition, you might be
nervous, but think about it as practice, say “I am a ten,” and go out there and do what
I have to do. You have to remain positive with yourself
in order to get over those feelings of anxiety and stress. Do it every day and do it at practice. Do it before you go to sleep at night. Look at yourself in the mirror saying it. Keep that mentality throughout the whole season
throughout the whole year throughout practice throughout competition. Then when it comes time to compete, you are
ready. Visit http://www.teenmentaltoughness.com to
