Abstract

Higher levels of mental skill use and knowledge have been consistently associated with enhanced performances in athletic settings (e.g., Greenleaf, Gould & Dieffenbach, 2001; Hatzigeorgiadis, Zourbanos, Galanis, & Theodorakis, 2011; Weinberg, 2008). More specifically, exceptional athletic performances have been linked to the practice and application of mental skills such as goal-setting, imagery, self-talk, emotion control, activation, relaxation, automaticity, and positive thinking (Thomas, Murphy, & Hardy, 1999). Mental skills have also been shown to enhance psychological resilience, stress hardiness, and performance among members of the U.S. military (Adler et al., 2015).
