Posted by

In layman’s terms, being good at sports simply means that you excel at it or the player simply practice hard – no science involved. However, success in sports in similar to being successful in other things in life, whether in music, in writing, in arts, in businesses, in academics or in relationships, there is a need to apply scientific approach. Just like in any classroom scientific research, the initial step in the application of Science in sports is to recognize and then comprehend the objectives. It is necessary to state clearly what you really want to accomplish. In any research works, there is a need to state the objective. In sports, that objective can be being an all-star and MVP caliber of baseball player, be the best pitcher, or be at par or even surpass the greatest of all time/G.O.A.T player in basketball and the most common objective is to win a champion, not just one but multiple times.

Whatever you select, you have to put your passion about it. It should be the main goal and do not settle for less. You may have to change your strategy to achieve your objective, but do not alter the man goal. You may even hearabout many academic scholars and even scientist who eat, sleep and breathewith their studies. You have to apply the same passion in your sports and have the intensity on pursuing the objective.

After clearly stating your objective, the next thing to do is visualization. You have to visualize yourself performing your best and the skills linked with the sports you engage and of course, do it as perfectly as possible. Scientific studies showed that visualization is very beneficial tool for improving oneself. In fact, many champion athletes practice this method before they perform on the bigger stage.

After you visualize, you have to commit in order to develop the necessary skills for the sports you participate. Play hard but practice harder. Allot multiple hours a day honing your skills. Part of being committed is to have the right gears in sports like the appropriate baseball uniform when you play ball, compression shirts to keep your blood flowing throughout the game and so on. Keeping everything in your gym bags is also an example.

Of course, you have to believe in yourself. Always have the mindset of “you can do it”. Recognize and befriend your fears and doubts and slowly, these negative things will go away. Finally, enjoy everything – all the practices, the hardships, the pit stops – and you will savor the success in no time.
