No, no and no!

No, no and no!

No, no, and no!

Is a footballer going to have a 10/10 performance every time?

And Is a footballer going to have a 9/10 performance or better every time?

Is a footballer going to have an 8/10 performance or better every time?

No, no, and no!

And so we may have a problem – a problem because just about every player runs out onto the pitch with the most obvious objective:

“I want to play at my best.” It’s a problem because, more often than not, a player has set him or herself up for disappointment.

Maybe even for performance anxiety. The likelihood is that they won’t perform at their best.

No, no, and no!

The fact is, football, like all sports, is just too hard to have that objective…so we might need a better competitive philosophy.

“I want to play at my best and I want to play my best possible game” It’s that word ‘possible’ that matters.

Some days a 6/10 performance is a really good one. Maybe it’s a day a player feels flat or lethargic.

Maybe it’s a day his or her team mates are playing really poorly.

By helping players explore what an average performance…a 6/10 looks like.

And by helping them understand that some days this kind of performance is good enough

You actually give them a better chance to eliminate the 4/10 and 5/10.

Those best ‘possible’ performances really can be positive ones!
