Every player and every team will face adversity. How that adversity is dealt with separates the successful from the unsuccessful teams. Successful teams stay mentally tough and execute a plan to handle mistakes during games.
- Reset – We acknowledge that a mistake has been made. It happened and there is nothing that can change it.
- Refocus – Successful players have a “next play” mentality. We need to get mentally and physically focused for the next play.
- Reflect – The mistake can be revisited, but only in a positive manner. What can we do differently? What can we do to prevent it from happening again?
