Georgia discusses how choking is a culmination of errors where athletes can’t bounce back because their focus turns to what went wrong, what they did wrong and past mistakes and failures. They lose focus on what they did and needed to do in order to get where they are. In other words, they lose focus on what works and instead focus on what isn’t working. One key skill that all athletes need to learn is self-reflection – regularly reflecting on what works. Typically, when we perform well, we just continue performing well.
