3) Create a unique identity to the team (Yes!!!!! we are The Yakuza)
4) Commit to winning.
5) Give them a vision
6) Play / work with passion.
One way of preparing the mind is to visualize. Sit back in a relax position and visualize yourself in the game. How you move, where you move, who to eliminate or bunkered? Move from one bunker to another and eliminate. Study the field and plan the move in your mind. Visualization is one of the important exercise in preparation for competition . It is part of training that provide not only competitive edge but also renewed mental awareness and sense of well-being.
For the last few nights, I have been downloading video clips from You Tube and will be using those to help me visualize the technical moves and tactical moves from experienced players especially those from European and US including tutorial video clips. Watching, remembering and memorising the moves will help a player during the game in terms of providing manipulative information that he might be able to pick and use in the game situation.
The mind has to be set from now on.
