Do you coach a sport but also compete and when you go to competition you feel a little bit out of place?
Today I’m going to tell you about how you can feel like you belong when you go and compete.
Here’s the question Dr. Patrick Cohn answers this week:
RICK ASKS: “I’m a tennis coach and I also compete in local and national tournaments, occasionally, but most of the time when I start the match I play timid tennis. I feel strange as if I don’t belong on the court. How can I learn to be more mentally tough and feel like I should be there?”
