Who is responsible for your outcomes?

Dec 18, 2021

-Coach: John, when you get in that position, think about your consistency instead of hitting a very risky shot.
-John: it would have been in if the bounce would have been good, besides that, the wind moved it slightly out.

Locus of control is an individual’s belief system regarding the causes of his or her experiences and the factors to which that person attributes success or failure.

Whenever you don’t accomplish what you had planned, what is your first tendency? To look for the answer outside and how the exterior factors interfere in your execution or you look inside and look how you could have don’t things in a different way?

Players with and internal locus of control believe that what happens to them can be greatly influenced by themselves. Players with an external focus of control tend to feel that external factors, such as luck or other people are responsible for what happens to them.
I believe that this aspect greatly influences motivation. If you feel that you can be the author of what happens you are certainly going to put more energy on creating the results you want.
Which one do you want to be?
