Morgan, P. Daniels eds. The iceberg profile is not a tool for team-selection but a diagnostic device that promulgates more questions. The first question that comes to mind is how to define vigor. Smith, Schutz, Smoll, and Ptacek verbally categorized these skills in the Athletic Coping Skills Inventory as including the following: coping with adversity, peaking under pressure, goal setting and mental preparation, concentration, freedom from worry, confidence and achievement motivation, and coachability.

Healthy and well-balanced growth Motivation, much like a spindly plant directing shoots towards the sun, is comprised of direction of effort and intensity of effort,6 and in the context of sport is often interpreted as being trait, situation, or interaction centered. It is important to understand intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and to correctly apply the most effective tactic based on the personality, situation, and interaction involved.
Amotivation or a lack of self-determination can signify that an individual feels incompetent and is frustrated by a lack of control. Achievement motivation develops from the autonomous stage where the individual focuses on mastery of their 6G.
See H. If the individual is unable to establish any control of their situation or progress, it is necessary to review goal-setting in order to establish an environment in which they might succeed.
A sense of progress must always remain central to the learning environment and can be established through the manipulation of and adherence to clearly stated and carefully crafted goal-setting. That said, it is important to set specific goals that are quantifiable and measurable to create a sense of achievement, to set moderately difficult but realistic goals in order to build self-confidence and avoid frustration, to set long-term and short-term goals that are preferably linked, to set performance and process goals to flesh out and better achieve outcome goals, to set both practice and competition goals and thereby recognize the difference, to record goals for accountability, to develop goal achievement strategies while considering personality and motivation as factors, to foster and support a goal commitment, and finally, to provide evaluation and feedback on the goal process.
Williams ed. Intensity as Measured by Arousal Levels and Emotional States A common deterrent and source of frustration is the gap perceived between performance and practice often due to performance anxiety, loss of concentration, or other distractions.
It is easy to place blame on various factors or exclaim that it never happens in practice, the fact remains that performers must prepare themselves for any number of distractions or unexpected situations and develop coping strategies to refocus and deliver an optimal performance despite complications. Many of these complications arise simply from a lack of awareness of emotional states and arousal levels.
It is important to catalogue the various emotional states in order to be able to understand how your body and mind react in diverse situations and to be able to reconstruct the arousal levels and emotional states of your best performances. Arousal is defined as a blend of physiological and psychological activity in a person and refers to the intensity dimensions of motivation at a particular moment along a continuum. Anxiety is a negative emotional state characterized by nervousness, worry, and apprehensions often associated with activation or arousal of the body and exists in two forms: cognitive or 11 Smith, H.
The stress process involved in performance is initiated by a substantial imbalance between a psychological or physical demand and response capability especially in situations where the perceived end has important consequences. McGrath ed. Scanlan, J. Arent, J.
In the realm of orchestral auditions, recorded run-throughs of the program or run-throughs performed in front of people are extremely useful and in my experience, most effective when occurring regularly even up to 10 or more times before an audition or performance in order to have more information about the stress you might experience in the real performance. Terry eds. Psychological Skills and How to Use Them Psychological skills training was developed and systematically used in Russia in the s and refers to systematic and consistent practice of mental or psychological skills for the purpose of enhancing performance, increasing enjoyment, or achieving greater sport and physical activity self-satisfaction.
Often athletes fall into the trap of constantly attempting to reassure themselves through senseless physical repetition to create the illusion of security when effective mental practice could help build the self-confidence to get it right on stage instead of in just in the practice room.
Psychological skills utilize various techniques to give athletes more control over their anxiety or enhance confidence through positive self-talk or imagery while creating mental toughness for high-pressure situations. Clough, Earle, and Sewell posited that mental toughness consists of control or the ability to handle many things while remaining influential rather than controlled, commitment or being deeply involved with pursuing goals despite difficulties, openness to challenge and the perception of potential threats or setbacks as opportunities for growth, and confidence that perseveres.
It is helpful to create a checklist with a five 22Robert S. Clough, K. Sewell, I. Cockerill ed.
The likely culprit in compromising performance through unregulated arousal rates is anxiety. While many anxiety reduction techniques exist and the pitfall of tensed muscles in performance is clearly to be avoided, research has noted that it is equally productive to decide to interpret anxiety in a facilitative rather than a debilitative manner.
