Replace Criticism With Curiosity
Berating yourself and putting yourself down will not help you to play in the zone. Replace your tendency to criticize yourself with a smart question:
What did you just learn from your last shot or from
the last point?
This wise question will keep you thinking in a smart and useful way and keep you on top of your game.
