Here's a hint: true success has little to do with what others say about you and everything to do with what you say to yourself.
When you or your team possesses the ability to think about success, competition and winning in ways that are more internal and less external, amazing things begin to take shape.
If you're looking for better performance from your team, look at the internal playbooks of your team members. I have a long history of helping college and professional teams and athletes clear out their mental clutter so they can increase their own level of trust in themselves and their abilities.
Mental clutter can manifest itself in many ways, including:
* Doubts about performance
* Fear of failure
* Past disappointments, frustrations and losses
* Judgments of themselves and others
* Personal issues that have nothing to do with sports
Any combination of these can clutter up the minds of your players at game time, which almost always results in players who aren't living up to their athletic potential when you need them the most.
