Creating An Important Competitive Advantage
By Tim Engels FRVBC Sports Psychologist
We’ve talked about how important it is to take charge of your thinking as a Front Range volleyball player. And we’ve talked about how valuable it is to use posture and breath to take charge of your thoughts. With the last qualifiers of this season approaching, taking charge of your thinking by taking charge of your posture can give you a significant competitive advantage.
Please watch this Ted Talk by Ann Cuddy on body language: Click Here
Here are the crucial take-away points:
Your body language affects how you feel about yourself, and how you think about yourself.
Your body language affects how others see you.
Use body language to maintain your competitive determination and mental toughness when competing.
Use body language to intimidate your opponents when you compete.
Like everything else in volleyball, you need to practice this regularly to really take advantage of the opportunity it presents. Time’s a wastin! No time like the present to be working on this.
