Why do many athletes say their sport is “80% mental”, and yet their training plan does not incorporate their brain?  What is the disconnect?  One reason may involve not knowing how to integrate the mental component into training.  I have a suggestion for you.

Start by tying a part of your regular routine with some mental preparation.  For example, what if every day as you stretched you mentally rehearsed key learning moments from your previous day’s practice?  What if every day as you tied your shoes or skates you reviewed a process goal you wanted to keep in mind that day?  What if every day you wrote one key word on the inside of your wrist that corresponded with something you were trying to achieve more like “risk”, “attack”, or “patience” to remind you of a focus?  The truth is there are many “anchors” already present in your physical routine that you can begin to use as an association to a mental process.  

Get out there and experiment, and adopt the habit of training your mind in conjunction with your body.

Brain Power. It reminds me of this Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being by Rudolph E. Tanzi Ph.D. and Deepak Chopra. I liked how it discussed the brain as not just the greatest gift that nature has given us. but the gateway to an unlimited future of happiness that we can begin to live today.

I think mental training is as important as physical training in a sport because your mind has to be sharp for the sport. Athletes exert not only effort in running and dodging and whatever they do in whatever sport that they're in, but they also have to strategize and formulate action plans so that they could anticipate their opponent's moves and, in turn, they could make their own counter moves.

I agree; mental training should be just as important as physical training. I have personally seen matches won because of the mentality the player has over the other. We have examples of Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams who became champions because of their mental fortitude. Coaches should invest much in training this aspect of their players. It separates the champions from the competitors.

Mental toughness is one of the most underestimated aspect of sport. This is the part of the game wherein the most narrow wins are made. Everyone can be skilled, but it's different to have the best mental fortitude in the game. Young athletes need to take notice of this aspect of their game. On behalf of the athletes, thank you for making the public conscious of this important aspect of sport.

You can't win any game due to the mental stress so off-course mental training is very much essential for everyone and in every aspect of life not only games. Real life experiences gives more stress & needs more mental exercise as you can see in "Big Brother" just one example. Real life time experiences teaches you more by experiencing several events to manage and control your mind.
