Getting the right attitude - Introduction

Your mental attitude is vital to your success as a cricketer.

Positive thinking has been proven to make a significant difference to sport performance. While skills and fitness are also key factors, if you dont have the right attitude you will not get the best from yourself.

The great news is that you can train yourself to attain the right attitude just as easily as you can have a net or a workout in the gym. Sports Psychologists have proven a number of techniques at the highest level to do this. These methods are easily employed by any level of cricketer.
