Confucius on self-talk

He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right. ~ Confucius

Self-talk is all the stuff you say to yourself in your mind. Even your emotions are a kind of self-talk, especially if you are mad at yourself. Usually a person’s self-talk is a product of their self-confidence. However, mental skills training can change your self-talk, and increase your belief in yourself. Mental toughness is important for all athletes. Don’t leave out training your most important muscle!
