Take this free assessment to identify the mental barriers holding you back from achieving your potential.

Check off all the statements below that apply to your mental game:

  • You can’t stay motivated. It is hard to always give 100% effort. You need help managing your energy and improving your practice performance

  • You worry about failing or making mistakes

  • You are not sure how to get in the zone consistently. You need help with mental preparation

  • You need to remove mental blocks

  • You need help managing your perfectionism and expectations Expecting to be perfect or make no mistakes gets in the way of your performance.

  • You want to improve your overall mental toughness

  • You need to improve your self talk. Including managing negative thinking, using helpful/positive thinking and decreasing self-criticism

If you have checked 2 or more boxes above you can definitely improve your performance with mental training.

If you want to go one step further look at all the statements you have checked. For each mental barrier rate out of 5 how much it hurts your performance or affects your training. For example if you struggle to bounce back from mistakes you would rate this 5 if you often perform worse afterwards. Once you have done this for each, identify the five mental barriers rated the highest and these are the areas you need to start working on first.
