Self Confidence and Performance

Metrifit Ready to Perform

Confidence is the essential trait that defines each individual’s hope and faith in achieving their goals, that leads to successfully achieving accomplishments in the future. The vast majority of physiologists feel self confidence is essential to gaining success and without it, consistently performing at high levels in school, on the job, in sports, and social activities is not possible– Importance of confidence – www.iceskatingresources.org

What is Sports Confidence?

Individuals who are successful in any walk of life have many traits that stand out, and without question one of the main ones is confidence. It is the same in the sporting world and it is no coincidence that those who are successful in sport, have a great confidence in their own ability. Confidence can often be one of the key differentiating psychological factors between successful and unsuccessful performance. The article What’s Sports Confidence provides us with the following definition:

Having sports confidence means having self-confidence which is YOUR belief in YOUR ability to complete a physical skill or task required in your sport. Our confidence can be bolstered at times by others’ belief in us; but, ultimately, we have to believe in our own abilities to go out there and perform our best.

It may be tempting to presume that this self-belief is something that these athletes are born with, but in many cases it is a trait that the athlete has developed over the years. What is important to understand is that this belief in their ability is not something that comes by accident, or as a result of them simply relying on natural talent.

Preparation is key

In terms of sport, confidence comes from being properly prepared. Dr Jim Taylor in the Huffington Post talks about Prime Confidence.

Prime confidence is a deep, lasting, and resilient belief in one’s ability. With prime confidence, you are able to stay confident even when you’re not performing well. Prime confidence keeps you positive, motivated, intense, focused, and emotionally in control when you need to be.

How to achieve Prime Confidence

In another article entitled Five keys to athletic confidence, Dr Taylor identifies the five key components to achieving Prime Confidence and they are as follows:

  • Preparation breeds confidence: Preparation is the foundation of confidence. This preparation includes the physical, technical, tactical, equipment-related and mental parts of your sport, and it means putting the necessary time and effort into every aspect of your training
  • Mental Skills reinforce confidence: Inspirational thoughts and images will bolster your motivation, positive self-talk and body language to fortify your confidence, intensity control to combat confidence-depleting anxiety, keywords to maintain focus and avoid distractions, and emotional-control techniques to calm yourself under pressure
  • Adversity ingrains confidence: Athletes can’t always train or compete in ideal conditions, so an athlete has to be prepared to overcome adversity. The challenge is to maintain your confidence when you’re faced with the worst possible conditions, situation or opponent
  • Support bolsters confidence: It’s difficult to achieve success on your own. The very best athletes in every sport have many people supporting them. There will be times when things are just not going well, and it helps to have people to whom you can turn for support and encouragement
  • Success validates confidence:
    All the previous steps in building confidence will be for naught if you don’t then perform well and achieve your goals. Success validates the confidence you have developed in your ability; it demonstrates that your belief in your ability is well-founded

Dr Taylor sums up his views by stating:

The ultimate goal of prime confidence is to develop a strong and resilient belief in your athletic ability so that you have the confidence to give your best effort, perform at your highest level and believe you can achieve your goals in the most important competitions of your life.

Sports Confidence among University Athletes

Recent research entitled Sources of sports confidence and contextual factors among university athletes examined the sources of sport confidence among randomly selected Kenyan university athletes. Data was collected using the Sources of Sports Confidence Questionnaire (SSCQ) (Vealey et al, 1998). The SSCQ is a 43-item instrument that examines 9 confidence sources, categorized into three higher-order dimensions which include

  • achievement (mastery, demonstration of ability)
  • self-regulation (physical/ mental preparation, physical self-presentation) and
  • social climate (social support, vicarious experience, coach’s leadership, environmental comfort, situational favorableness)

The abstract of the research states:-

Among the highest rated sources of sport confidence were coaches’ leadership, vicarious experience, mastery and demonstration of ability. Athletes differed significantly across gender in vicarious experience with males recording higher scores. Social support also yielded significant difference across year of study with finalists having lower scores. Mastery, physical and mental preparation, social support and vicarious experience showed significant difference in favour of those who had longer playing experience

The findings of the study have practical implications for student-athlete preparation for sport competition and research suggests that the Management of university sports should consider the implications of the diverse demographics in order to optimize sport confidence among their student athletes.

How Metrifit helps with preparation and confidence

Being prepared means paying attention to all aspects of an athlete’s regime. If a coach or an athlete knows that they have done their best in terms of preparing through nutrition, sleep, training and are mentally focused, then they can go into competition with a self-belief that is based on solid foundations. Through simple effective monitoring, coaches and athletes can easily identify areas that might affect preparation and steps can be taken to ensure each athlete is in their best condition to perform. Metrifit can help build the confidence that might make the difference between winning and losing. Research by Anna Saw (Deakin University, Australia) detailed in Athlete Self-Report Measure Use and Associated Psychological Alterations has shown that use of Metrifit is associated with increased athlete sporting self-confidence. Metrifit is ‘athlete-centric’ helping to develop self-awareness, encourage creative thinking and emotional intelligence as well as developing ownership and responsibility within the athlete for their own success.

"We started using Metrifit to see if it gave us better predictability and allowed easier monitoring than our DIY excel sheets prior to the Tokyo qualifiers. In a sport where measuring training load is very difficult, Metrifit filled a huge gap in our ability to monitor our athletes’ performance state and recovery. After some months of collecting data I was able to clearly see when to back off and when to keep going with different aspects of the training programme, as well as when to provide extra care and support for our elite athlete – and without a doubt it is much more informative and sensitive than our DIY model, not to mention much easier! Looking forward to the next Olympic cycle with Metrifit as one of our essential tools."

I have been using Metrifit for the past number of years and I have found it to be an excellent piece of software.  It is extremely easy to use and has proved very beneficial in preparing myself for competition.  The ability to view my health and wellbeing stats everyday and see how this influences my performance in both practice and competition has been very helpful. I have been able to put more effort into key areas such as fluid intake, sleep and balanced golf practice and training. Having the ability to view my detailed stats helps me to understand exactly where I am and how I need to adjust my training or health choices.  I have found using Metrifit this past year has been a crucial help for me to play well. As I now have turned 50 I am playing on The Champions tour in the USA and have played well during my first year. Metrifit has been as important as my golf equipment in achieving that success.

A simply wonderful product."
"The holistic approach of medical, physical, emotional and even tech/tactical; bringing together what we need to monitor and evaluate our University players. “If you can’t measure it – it doesn’t exist.” I know we were the first Canadian University to use the program and I know many more will be asking for it in the future! I highly recommend Metrifit."

"Metrifit is an integral part of the set up within the senior and intermediate inter-county Camogie.  The data collected daily on the individual players is critical to the decision making of the backroom team including, managers, trainers, selectors, physiotherapist and indeed myself. As a nutritionist it allows me to monitor the quality of the player’s diet, energy levels, sleep pattern and overall wellbeing."
