This needs to conditioned not only by athletes or students, but much more for the coach or teacher who trained or taught. Familiarize yourself wit positive thinking can foster self-confidence, increase motivation and build cooperation between the various parties. Positive thinking is major capital can have a strong physiological skills.
Positive thinking followed by action and the positive words also, because it will guide the action. For example, if in playing badminton negative thoughts occur like: “be afraid of, afraid of hitting the ball out, afraid of the ball hitting responsibility” and so on, then it is likely there will be greater. Like what DR. Joe Vitale “Thoughts are sending out that magnetic signal that is drawing the parallel back to you, “The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that like attracts like, consequently, the mental attitude will invariably attract such conditions as correspond to its nature.”: (The Secret, p: 10/Indonesian Version p:11) Another page Lisa Nichols says “You can see the law of attraction everywhere. You draw everything to yourself. The people, the job, the circumstances, the health, the wealth, the debt, the joy, the car that you drive, the community that you’re in. And you’ve drawn them all to you, like a magnet. What you think about you bring about Your whole life is a manifestation of the thoughts that go on in your head”,: (The Secret, p: 20/Indonesian Version p:23). In the Islamic religion which has taught Rosullulloh Muhammad, we know the term either suspect (Khusnudhon Billah / positive thinking) that anyone who wanted serious, will ease the way open. Ability is a gift Allah S.W. T, Laa Khaula Wa Laa Quwwata Illa Billaah, there is no power and strength / capability except with permission. Therefore, try and make it a habit to always think positive, avoid negative. Likewise, in giving instructions to the athletes or your students. Instead of saying: “you are …! It’s hard to teach … wrong and hold …! Beware, do not stop before it can! “Better to say it in a positive way, although a similar point:” Come on … try again, slowly, you could do it. Note, this gesture … move here … because the ball here, Come on … try “.
As a coach or PE teacher, show that you believe that the athlete or your students have the opportunity to get achievements or can do a good skill. Ridicule, disapproval and harsh criticism that is not in place will actually make an athlete or your students react too negative and resulted in decreased motivation to follow decline in achievement.
