To Win You Need To Do The Practice.
Basketball Experiment | Do Breakthrough
Australian psychologist Alan Richardson made a little experiment. He took a group of basketball players, divided them into three groups and tested each player’s ability to make free throws.
- The first group would practise 20 minutes every day.
- The second would only visualise themselves making free throws, but no real practice was allowed.
- The third one would not practise or visualise.
The results were astounding.
The group that practised saw a marked improvement. But there was a significant improvement on the group that only visualised; they were almost as good as the guys who actually practised. The third group, as expected, regressed.
So, you know how to win. Do the 20-minute practice and the visualisation too.
Convince Yourself First.
Here’s the thing. People can smell belief a mile off. They can smell the opposite a mile off too. When people listen to a talk, they don’t listen to what is said. But actually, they listen to how it is said. Non-verbal cues, huh. In fact, there is research that says up to 93% of what you are saying has to do with what you are not saying.
