This Is How Showing Frustration Kills Your Game

Productive mistakes are part of the process to growing and it should be a part of your training, but do you find yourself wearing your frustration on your face? Here are a few reasons why you should stop.

"Wearing your feelings on your sleeve will end up being a chip on your shoulders." - John Paul Warren 

Productive Mistakes
If your training is always going great, then you are either not training hard enough or stuck in your comfort zone. You should be making mistakes and at times looking goofy, especially if you are trying new techniques or  tactics.

But you shouldn't show your dissatisfaction on your face, here's why: 
  • It can make the difference between winning a split decision or losing a split decision, convincing the judges you lacked composure.
  • It will motivate your competition. If they see you flustered, they will hit you harder and harder.
  • It will give you self doubt. Negative posture seeps into your thoughts.
  • You will lose focus.

Wearing a Mask
I'm not saying for you to ignore your blunders, but more in line with do not display it on your face. So when you realize that you messed up do not show it in your face, acknowledge it in your mind. Bite down on your mouth piece and march forward.
Best to your training,

Danny Millet
