Powerful Basketball Mindset

By: Trajko Dangov

Michael Jordan had a powerful mindset. Bill Russell had a powerful mindset. You want me to go on?

All the great players have a powerful mindset. Now, having the right mindset it not enough. Take
a look at Michael Jordan. When he decided to play for the Wizards, he didn't have the same psychical
ability he once had. But in his mind, he was all Jordan.

Here is a recipe for improving your mindset:

1.) Believe in yourself. See yourself as a great basketball player. I remember watching an interview with
Bill Russell. The reporter asked him something about how he manages to be such a good defensive player. Bill
answered that no matter what the opponent will try to do, he can't score. He can't win. He just can't.
It's as simple as that.

2.) Play your heart out. It's not for nothing that a lot of people say, just go out there and give a 110%.
You can win in a game, but if you didn't give your all, you're a loser. You didn't win because you weren't
at your best. You might have actually won the game but that's because the other team sucked big time. Try
to be the best player you can be every game. The next game, try to be even better. It's all inner state of mind.

3.) Have a goal to achieve something. May that be to win a championship of just please your father, or impress
your girlfriend. It doesn't matter. I can challenge the greatest shooter in the world, in his best day, and I'll win.
I'm positive. But first I'll put blinders on him and turn him around a couple of times so he has no clue where
he is at.

Now you may say, well Trajko, that sure is a silly example. How can you possible hit a target you can't see? Pretty
good question huh? Here's one, even better. How can you hit a target, you don't have?
