This article discusses the importance of establishing a routine and how it relates to your confidence in a game.
What is/was your routine when stepping in the box? Did you find it imperative to relaxing and being in control?
As a business and life coach I completely agree on the importance of establishing empowering routines. Those physical actions, along with the proper mental state bring the body and mind together "in the Zone." It is important to not allow any self doubt to enter this routine or space. Keep it relaxed, focused on the outcome (hitting the ball square) and trust your abilities.
Thanks for sharing the article.
