This week's sports psychology podcast helps athletes understand the training and trusting mindsets. Dr. Cohn contends that athletes must maintain a good balance between two important mindsets in sports: training and performance mindsets. Most perfectionists have trouble with the trusting mindset - they become stuck in their training. Over-doing one of these two mindsets cause you to not reach your full potential.
In this Podcast, Dr. Cohn addresses questions that are of great significance to competitive athletes. He discusses which of the two mindsets are more important? The training or the performance mindset? He goes on to discuss each mindset in detail and talks about which mindset is most common among athletes. And then finally, Dr. Cohn explains how one makes the transition from one mindset to the other.
