Anger is an emotion everyone feels. Despite what some people think, it’s normal, okay and healthy to get angry. Unfortunately, too many people see anger as a feeling that is supposed to be avoided.

“ Your mood is a mental state that magnetizes feelings to it. When in a bad mood, you will look for someone or something to blame, because misery does love company. Although your mood is an independent mental event, you can influence your mood.”

More Important Than Talent  - Mental Toughness - SKILL ACQUISITION TO SPORT PSYCHOLOGY | Social, Emotional & Mental Factors | Scoop.it

“Talent goes a long way in determining whether an athlete will make it at an elite level. But the factor that separates talented athletes from other talented athletes: the willingness to suffer and endure hardship.”

Clare Labowitch's curator insight, November 23, 2013 11:30 PM

I really disagree with this. Work ethic and resilience need to accompany talent but a willingness to suffer seems too "old school" to me.

YEAR 12 HPE - SPORT PSYCHOLOGY (term 4 2015)

 

In almost every sport the top level performers are all similar in their level of ability, for example they all have similar attributes of being strong, fast, skilful, and have as much stamina as each other. Yet in every sport some performers emerge as winners while others never quite reach this level.  The difference between these top level performers and the winners are the players who can overcome the mental pressures of a tough game; they can ignore and in some cases embrace the crowd and the importance of the occasion.
