Inspiring volleyball quotes can go a long way to improving confidence in young athletes. Coaches alway tell you to be more confident in yourself, but never actually tell you how to do it.
Many athletes don't realize that you can build confidence with the right exercises.
We all have success in our past performance. What tends to happen with athletes is focusing on the negative mistakes in order to get better. We think that improving mistakes will make us better.
When we do look at the mistakes in a positive way this is when confidence really suffers.
Make a list of past accomplishments and anything you've done well in your sport. Look at this list 4 or 5 times a week and tell yourself you're a really good athlete. This is the mindset you want to have.
You can understand the negative and that you need to improve. And you have to know deep down that you are a very good competitor.
People tend to be good at focusing on the negative. We need to get good at finding accomplishments.
List your personal strengths. You'll always have your personal strengths to fall back on if you lose confidence.
HOPE. Hold On, Possibilities Exist.
Also, Here you get HOPE. By Hearing Other Peoples Experiences.
When you hear about other people having success, you realize you can have the success too.
You start to believe you can do it. They can do it, so why couldn't I?
It also helps when you feel you can relate to that person. They have the same challenges as you so you see yourself as trying to succeed at something similar.
Look at the skill you use most frequently. Then look who else uses that skill.
For example, if you are a left-handed setter in volleyball, look at other left-handed setters that have had a lot of success in volleyball. Watch athletes that do things similar to how you do things.
If you see an athlete succeeded using the same skills as you, then you'll start to think you can do it too.
