Control the Controllables

Cheryl Higgins, Mum to Ben, Team GB 400m

Learning Outcomes:

Discovering what they can and cannot control is an important part of the athlete's learning curve.

Actionable Steps:

  • Accepting that some things are beyond their control can help put results into perspective, eg. how well another athlete will perform. Your athlete may produce their best performance but, on that particular day, another athlete might be even better.

  • It can also allow them to approach an event with a more accepting outlook, eg. they cannot control the weather conditions, the lane draw, or which athletes they’ll be up against.
