The Skateboarding Psychology Workbook: How to Use Advanced Sports Psychology to Succeed on a Skateboard (Paperback)
Skateboarders hear it all the time...
"Skateboarding is 90% Mental, and 10% Physical"
"It's All in Your Head"
"The Only One that Can Stop You is You"
"You have to be Mentally Tough "
But what exactly do those sayings mean Without something concrete, it's difficult for athletes to understand what it specifically takes to have a mental approach primed for success.
And rather than have a debate with someone who knows nothing about mental training or sports psychology... or read about theories and mental hacks that may or may not work off some random website...why not use a detailed, interactive, and engaging workbook that shows and teaches athletes how specific Sports Psychology concepts directly impact their performance on a skateboard?
That's exactly what you've found here
Through 10 Dynamic Exercises... we take athlete's on a journey through the Most debilitating Mental and Emotional Obstacles faced by the Vast Majority of Competitors including:
-Decreased Levels in Motivation
-Lack of Goal-Setting Capability
-Suppressing Unwanted Thoughts
-An Inability to get "In a Zone"
-Experiencing Overwhelming Pre-Match Jitters, Nerves, and Anxiety
-Overcoming Serious and Debilitating Injuries
-Zero Formal Education of Necessary Mental Skills such as Mental Imagery and Self-Talk
-Competing without Confidence
-Not Being Able to Focus when it Matters Most
When Athletes Suffer and become Victim to one or multiple issues mentioned above...it becomes Incredibly Difficult for them to maintain a positive frame of mind not only in sports but in life in general. And unfortunately in society today all athletes are under the spot light as they are judged by many of their friends, family, and peers by the level of success they have during competition, which makes it absolutely crucial for athletes to be mentally tough and resilient.
