In this book, you will find inspiring tips for young athletes who struggle with their mental game. I wrote this because I thought it would be cool to write a book from a kid's perspective. What goes on in a kid's mind when they have so much pressure to do well? My book, Losing Is The Key To Winning, has many helpful tips to change your perspective and help you manage all of the thoughts happening in your brain. I hope you can take something from this book that changes your life for the better.
In this book, you will find dozens of tips that can be a game-changer for you in your sport. It is short and simple and gives easy strategies to change your game, by adjusting your mental state in competition. You can always take something positive out of a loss. Are you in a slump wanting to get back to what you were able to achieve before? Do you want to learn how to calm your mind and play with intensity and focus at the same time? Chances are that the reason you aren't doing so well is because your brain is messing with you, especially when you are losing. Your brain most likely wants to project negativity on every loss, but there are ways to think so you can elevate your mind when playing. I suggest you read one chapter every day and apply it to your practice or upcoming tournament. You might not notice a huge difference at first, but trust me, it will help a ton in the long run.
