“Tomorrow is the match-day So, all of you be in time” The message in the Team group. It gives a sudden hope that i can perform well in this Tournaments. New energy strikes in your body whenever it’s game time. Practiced hard from the early 6:00 A.m in the cheering cold of winter thinking this would be my perfect chance to show my skills in tournament. Then suddenly my Brainstorms about my past tournaments. And the 0 point sticks in my mind. Where I played more than 4 games and was unable to score single point. “NO, this time it is not gonna repeat I am gonna perform well and win for my team”.
What i do before the tournaments days is. I work hard and work on my moves. My pull-ups and spot shooting. Then I watch some of the motivational videos of the basketball legends. Trust me that really fires you up and give some new and powerful energy. After working all of my Drills I stay right beside my mom “Mom Tomorrow is my game” And my Mom replies ” OH, Son i believe you are going to perform well” That believe from my mom motivates me to give my best in the game. Filling my diaries writing in this Tournament I am going to Rock”.
