Is it possible to love every single aspect of your sport? Before you answer, consider every detail, especially what you're not good at.
No athlete likes it when his or her weaknesses are exposed. In order to become better and excel at your sport, you must address those weaknesses. It may not be fun, and it might mean spending time working on aspects you dislike; but it's necessary if you want to improve as a player.
A great way to overcome weaknesses is through mindset modeling. The purpose of modeling is to overcome a deficiency that is limiting your performance. One athlete's weakness is another athlete's strength. Mindset modeling takes advantage of this. It works on the principle that if one person can do it, anyone can do it. So by figuring out how someone else does something and then learning how to do it yourself, you are essentially modeling that individual's behavior.
Are there teammates or professional athletes who seem to be motivated by a particular workout or task that you dread? Why do they look forward to it? How do they approach it? What gives it value for them?
Follow the steps below to change your attitude and gain motivation for a task or aspect you dislike.
