Foosball Mental Game
#1
Jonny Lott Wrote:Consistency, or in another words, peak performance is accomplish through the use of inner and external mental tools that creates single minded, undisturbed, focus on execution.

Given ones abilities, both innate and developed, (so long as one has put in the required dues and time and is ready for competition in both physical and mental preparedness), then nothing trumps focused and consistent execution in terms of becoming a winner.

Consistent performance in great players is not dictated by the score in the
match, or the score in the game, but the position of the ball and the task at hand that position creates for you, as a forward or a goalie. That is true focus. Not the score, not your opponent, not the trophies, not even the money to be earned. Your immediate task is dictated by the position of the ball. NOTHING TRUMPS that in importance. For if you win the position of the ball, or the task at hand, enough times you will win the point, the game, the match and the tournament. Consistency is based on extreme focus on execution of the task at hand while winning is an end result of that!!!You need to create a regimen of self-practice and practice against local competition, that results in your physical performance being second nature. However the paradox is, even if you are fully prepared in this area of your game, you're not ready! For at that point your best friend or your worst enemy becomes your mental game. Proper mental preparation coupled with physical readiness will get you in a zone where extreme focus on execution will even trump negative thoughts. Even fear will not be able to intrude your thoughts and make you second guess your execution.

speaking of mental game; are you allowed to wear sunglasses while you play foosball, or is that against the rules?
