I have a question for you.
When you drive, do you ONLY use your rearview mirror?
Of course not; if you did, you would crash.
Well, as athletes and coaches we often focus on the past, or what’s behind us. Perhaps we’re focusing on the last shot we missed, or the fact that we haven’t won a game in a few days. Regardless of what we are thinking about, if it’s not the present moment, we’re not going to perform at our peak.
If you shouldn’t drive watching the rearview mirror, don’t compete dwelling on the past.
Focus on the present and watch your results change.
