the fact is that to be able to be a good player, this is one of the things we have to deal with. as what i've said from my previous answers, the real opponent is not the guy on the other side of the net, but is really yourself.
at some point, especially times like this, we have to rise to the occasion. being good doesnt mean being on tiptop shape every single badminton day of your life, but how to overcome the feeling of weakness when you really need to be strong.
what i suggest is that, every time you feel weak or unaggressive, try managing it in your own way, try to compensate and get over with it. what i personally do in times like these is to outwit the opponent before he does it to me, not with speed or power but using tactics. bottom line is that times like these really is the measure of how good you are, how you manage yourself, especially physically, mind over matter. Imagine not being on tip top shape, and getting over with it, and defeating a better opponent, now that's what i call good

Hey Macazteeg I have a question to ask . So here is how it starts off I played with this player that claims he is the number one in the school . Well I was cruising the first ten points i had a 10-1 lead but then suddenly i felt some pain on my foot because the skin got scraped of but i still kept fighting and find myself losing my touch becoming slower , unaccurate shots , mental block and when ever i returned the shuttle to him he takes it too easy and eventually lost in a game of 11-21 so ive been thinking is this lost because of a phycological weakening or a physical problem . Thank You For Reading This And Hope You Can Please Find A Solution For My Problem

Looks like our in-house sports psychologist is busy.
BCers are really gifted, arent' they? We have our in-house statistician (AlanY), our in-house human search function (ctjcad), our in-house doctor (forgot the username), and our in-house escort (venkatesh).

First of all, 10-1 lead is unusual ... either your skills were very unmatched, or he was just toying with you.Secondly, this is why you need a can of coolong spray in your bag!

I dont mean to be wise or a knowledgeable one, i just dont the habit of blaming any factors when i lose in a match, i know its quite difficult but that's the way it should be, mentally. we lose, theres no more reason in that, either we got a sprained ankle, or a blistered foot, or we had *** the other night, doesnt really matter. bottom line is we lose because were the weaker player.
Most of the time in order to improve, we have to admit that we are weak, that we sometimes dont have the strength to win, at that point of time. hear me out when I emhasize AT THAT pOINT OF TIME. that way we will be able to internalize or know were are we in terms of strength, the are in which we need to improve. That way we will be more humble, and when we are humble we train harder, when we train harder we improve. If losing doesnt not kill you, it makes you stronger, as of now, you have to admit that your weak, that you really are no good. that you have much much more to prove. being humble means to say or admit to yourself that your weak at this time, that you need to improve, always remember bro, you play with the best not because your one of them, you play with the best because you want to be better, not than them, but than yourself. i leave with you with this quote by his airness, Michael Jordan
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. "

Mental toughness is all about controlling the inner voice in you that is negative. And how you can control the situation and your body's respond.
Mental toughness is all about practicing it. Watch and hear can only do little coz it inspire you. Doing it and experience it is a total different story all together. DEVELOP the HABIT of mental toughness will make you a different individual compare to the others

One time, I was playing at a queueing game. While waiting for my match, I was sitting on the bleachers watching this kid training and playing singles with his compatriot, with their coach just a few steps away from me. The kid lost the game and he was really down. This kid is no ordinary kid. He has won several gold medals in the regionals and nationals. However, that day, he was not playing well.
The coach talked to the kid. I was near enough to overhear their conversation. The coach was telling the kid that it's all but natural to commit errors. Everybody makes mistakes. But given the situation, you must not give up. Pick yourself up and try again. Catch up to the lost points. The important thing is, you don't give up. Don't let your opponent control the game. You have to work hard for the points. Don't just give the points to him.
It was really a moment. I thought that the kid was really lucky to have a coach like him. I saw the kid avidly listening to the coach, and that time, I knew that he's gonna go far. I have this feeling that when he's a grown up, he's gonna be representing our country.
