US-Volleyball-Coach John Kessel about words, language, positive thinking and motor learning
Here an elder post about Rosenberg’s principles of nonviolent communication and (motorskill)learning.
„Choking under pressure“ hits athletes, when they start thinking in stressful situations about their technique and in consequence their access to the automated movement is blocked. A remedy for such „mental blocks“ in the prefrontal cortex is to select a word for such situations, which positively describes the actually controlled movements. Sometimes it is already enough to think about about a color. A professional golfer has describes his movement with „supple“ and thus gets his fear of the decisive putt largely under control. A fine example of a „trick the mind“ strategy.
