Your body language, posture, and your facial expressions, broadcasts your attitude, mindset, and awareness to the world around you.
Question: If your coaches and teammates had your body language… would that be a good thing?
- Your body language either fills your team’s bucket or it drains it.
- It either raises your team’s energy or it lowers it.
- It either adds to your team’s composure or it rattles it.
Good body language communicates that you are poised… optimistic… and confident.
Bad body language reveals that you are frazzled… frustrated… dejected… and deflated.
Bad body language is a physical display of blaming, complaining, and making excuses.
That trilogy of behaviors will never, ever improve your situation, makes things better, or heighten your performance.
How is your body language when things don’t go your way?
- After a turnover?
- After a missed shot?
- After a referee’s missed call?
Do you take a stoic approach… quickly bounce back…. and move to the Next Play?
Or do you sulk… pout… and stay stuck in the past?
FACT: you cannot perform at your best while simultaneously displaying bad body language!
