Emotional Freedom Technique can improve the performance of both "weekend warriors" and serious professional athletes
You're a good candidate if you answer "yes" to any of the following questions:
- You become tense or anxious during your game
- You perform better in practice than in competition
- You become distracted by concerns about your performance
- You "choke" under stress
- You find you no longer enjoy playing your game because of your feelings about competition or your performance
- When you are performing your sport, you recall past failures
- You have "limiting beliefs" about your performance such as "I can't putt very well," or "I'll never be a great tennis player"
When the emotional barriers to athletic performance are addressed, athletes can more easily enter a state that some call "the zone" and others call "flow." Here, you feel alert, yet relaxed. You lose yourself in your sport and your best performance comes almost without effort.
