A problem in sports are irrational thoughts. The 'language of sport' would have us believe you either succeed or you perish. There is no inbetween. A job of a sport psychologists is to eradicate dysfunctional thought processes and emotions. When you find yourself in a situation that means something to you, every athlete can become irrational. We find we become rigid in our thoughts demanding we must do well. We must perform that movement. We cannot let anyone down. The reality is we want to do well. There is a subtle but clear difference between 'wanting and must'. Of course winning is important. But balance is needed. Sometimes adding rigid, inflexible, irrational demands can render you too anxious to perform to your best ability. The challenge for a sport psychologist is to promote logical, pragmatic, rational alternatives. The problem is when you become anxious your thoughts do become inflexible. It is easy to be rational when you are not in the situation. But once in that situation it is very hard to stop it once it has started. We are surrounded by it daily in sports. There are many methods available to sports psychologists and you.
