"Overheard" from the Minds of some Great Athletes: 

 
 
Normal Self-Talk                 can be transformed into            Fantastic Self-Talk
I've got to get a hit.
I don't have to win, but it sure would be fun. I'll make the most of this opportunity.
Adversity sucks.
At least it's adversity in the game I love.
I just love winning.
I love this game.
What will my coach say?
I know I'm trying my best, so I'm going to enjoy this competition and not worry. Period. No worries.
If we don't win, it will be a catastrophe.
Winning sure beats losing, but it's just a game.
OMG!
Don't get too emotional and lose track of the things I can control.
Wow, I royally messed that up!
Try to be perfect, but don't ever expect it.
 
Players Reminder: "You can either find a way or you can find an excuse, but you can't do both."
Coaches Reminder: "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." 
Winner's Creed: "I will give my best effort one step at a time, accept whatever happens, and do it again."
