Soccer Mental Toughness - How To Focus on The Controllables

Learn how to mentally tough in soccer with pro player Luke Vercollone.


Key Points:

A - Effort!

B - Attitude!

C- Preparation!

2 - Know what you can’t control.

A - Goals.

B - Referees.

C - What Others Think.

4 - Focus on what you control.


Exercise to Practice:

You will need a pen and paper for this exercise or If you are not old school like me then Im sure you can figure out how to do this on snapchat or something or whatever you kids are using these days!

First, write a list of all your goals in soccer. Like making the team, becoming a starter, scoring 10 goals this year, breaking your juggling record, etc.

Next, circle the goals that are outside of your control. Like becoming a starter. Yes, you control how hard you work to make it happen. But ultimately your coach makes the decision and that is out of your control.

Now, write down what you can control to help you reach those circled uncontrollable goals. These are called micro goals. For example, for the uncontrollable goal of becoming a starter, write work hard, be confident, jog in first every time the coach calls the team in, arrive early, stay after practice and work on skills, etc.

Micro goals are small, short term, action steps that will have a direct impact on reaching your long-term, tangible goals.

Now, focus on your micro goals. Focus on these controllables and let the results take care of themselves!



What’s Wrong:

If you can’t stop thinking about why you didn’t score a hat trick in your last game you are focusing on what you can’t control.

 


Bonus Tip:

Understand bad days happen. We all have them. You are not perfect. I’m not perfect. Pros aren’t perfect.

The two most powerful things that you can control are your EFFORT and your ATTITUDE!
