One of the qualities of perfectionist athletes is the fact that they judge their performance extremely harshly. They are very self-critical.

Very high level perfectionists want their performance to look good and feel good in order to get the desired results. When they don’t get these results they feel they aren’t performing up to their expectations.

To perform better in competition, perfectionists need to learn how to stop judging their performance.

Listen to this week’s mental training podcast and learn to overcome this highly judgmental behavior.
