"Focused for Soccer"

Post by Mike » 07 Feb 2005, 22:09

I was just browsing this site one day, when I came across the books section in the equipment subtitle. I noticed one book called "Focused for Soccer" and became interested. I just went to pick it up at the library a couple of days ago and I just wanted to type up a post that will inform all you players out there about the helful information in that book. I strongly recommend that book to any soccer player who takes the game seriously. It is really helping me out and I think it would do the same for all of you. You'd be surprised how much is mental in soccer.

The book was made for helping your mental aspect of the game.
It teaches you ways to be more positive instead of negative.
It talks about confidence, concentration, visualtion, competiveness, and topics like that.
It gives you great examples of similar situations, clearly explains how to change your view over the game, how to look past your mistakes, and other things that I know help a lot!

Although I'm sure there's much more and I am still relatively at the beginning, it hasd already boosted my game a lot.

If you are not really feeling motivated (what was gong on with me) or have another reason for holding your game back, I suggest you pick it up....if you are just interested or curious then I also think it's a good idea to try it out.

Hope you can get the chance to read it,
Mike

yea i love to look at the mental side of the game, because you should know that it's just a huge part of soccer, that is very overlooked. you should also check out a book called "mind games" and it's not specified to once sport, but it is absolutely brilliant and has thoughts from many of the greatest atheletes of all time.
another thing i would suggest is taking a look at this website: http://iceboxathlete.com/icebox.htm and i did buy this, and even though it's expensive it's well worth it and really cutting edge stuff.
