I often see athletes get angry after they strike out, or after they miss a shot. This happens all the time, at all levels, from beginner to professional.
But does this help them?
Why would you do something that won’t help you?
What is anger, anyway?
It’s a choice, isn’t it?
Anger is merely your reaction to a certain situation.
Can you control it?
Is it easy?
But it’s like anything else, with practice, it becomes easier.
So the next time you feel like getting angry, take a deep breath instead, and think about if you want to get angry, or if you want to stay focused and get back on track.
