Self-motivation for athletes. Motivation techniques to improve performance in sport
Motivation is the most important component in sport. It is the prerequisite for starting a sport and determines the success of training and competitions.
This book offers recreational and competitive athletes a large repertoire of valuable self-motivation strategies. The authors - all psychologists and even athletes - illustrate the topic with numerous scientific studies on motivation and practical examples from different sports. Self-tests show the reader where he stands at the moment and give instructions for future motivation development.
As co-editor of the book, Dr. Michele Ufer has published a chapter "Limit skills. How to increase sovereignty in personal extreme situations". In his new book Mental Toughness for Runners. A Complete Guide he goes even further and offers plenty of tools and knowledge to improve self-leadership and mental toughness. Also outside of running.
