"Four Essential Traits of a Top Table Tennis Player"

  1. Take Responsibility


The foremost trait you must cultivate to reach the top in table tennis is taking responsibility. It means acknowledging that your journey in table tennis, from today onward, rests entirely on your shoulders.

Let's be clear – losers always have a laundry list of reasons why they didn't reach the top.

 If you ask any player who fell short of their potential in table tennis, they'll provide a convincing explanation, often filed away as a potential excuse for others.

The truth is, those who didn't fulfil their potential in table tennis failed to take responsibility for their specific results.

 Once you set your sights on a goal in the game, you must take full responsibility for achieving it.

 Waiting for success to come to you is reactive thinking. Champions, on the other hand, are proactive thinkers who take charge of their destiny.

  1. Have Hunger

Your reason for playing table tennis is less important than the drive it ignites within you. Hunger, in its purest form, is a powerful driving force. If you're truly hungry for success, you'll go to great lengths to achieve it.

How do you cultivate this hunger? By committing to a reason why you must succeed in table tennis. Make a firm commitment to yourself that you'll relentlessly pursue your goals, regardless of the obstacles.

  1. Set Clear Goals


Goal-setting is your secret weapon for success. It's not just a mundane task; it's a powerful tool that guides your journey. Every top player, whether explicit or implicit, sets goals in their game.

Goals provide focus, keep you on track, and eliminate distractions.

In our next session, I'll conduct a special goal-setting workshop to help you define your aspirations in table tennis.

  1. Utilize the Power of Visualization


Visualization is a timeless technique that can transform your game.

By consistently visualizing yourself achieving your goals, your mind will work tirelessly to make it a reality.

 Even top sports psychologists use visualization techniques to great effect with elite athletes.

Incorporating visualization into your routine can significantly enhance your chances of success.

 Keep an image of your goals in mind, and watch as your performance improves.
In summary, table tennis is not just about physical prowess – it's about playing smart.

It's about leveraging your strengths to achieve optimal results in the shortest time possible.

I'm pleased to see your dedication in sticking with me through this session.
