Are you confident?
In sports, we come across a lot of ultra confident people. Some “type A” personalities, some big egos, but also a lot of people who are confident in their skin.
We can also develop and increase our confidence by practicing it.
Do the activities you excel at, and enjoy them, congratulate yourself. Savor your victories (no matter how small).
Remind yourself of your skills, the work you have put in, and all your achievements. These will help grow your confidence.
And always think of your support network: your friends, family, coach, team mates who all believe in you.
