Do you believe that chances of winning games depend on how mentally tough a player is? How is this possible? I see mental toughness as synonymous with the saying No retreat, No surrender! Whatever position you are in a game, losing will never be an option. That is the spirit of mental toughness.
Mental Toughness in display
What are the situations in which mental toughness can be elicited by a player? If you are very much familiar with the game of basketball, you can agree that mental toughness can be seen in the following basketball game scenarios:
- Pressure Free throws:
This happens in the dying minutes of the game wherein a foul is called. Both teams may be tied, or the other may be up by 1 or 2 points. The fouled player must sink in his 2 free throws, either to tie or win the game. Commentators, sometimes, call this one as the pressure cooker time. A mentally tough player can be able to shoot the 2 charities even with the presence of distractions along the loud noises of the fans.
