High achievers both in basketball and in life possess a great deal of confidence. Built within them is this supreme belief in themselves and their abilities. Other players tend to gravitate towards them. I call it an ” It Factor.”
But what makes a player confident?
Confidence comes from consistent daily wins. Progress in any area of your life breeds confidence. As a player if I constantly see myself getting better through my daily work, the trust in my abilities will continue to grow. Confidence is earned not spoken into existence.
Ask yourself are you practicing game speed reps? Game situations with game-like intensity and pressure? Competing outside your comfort zone?
