Drey Ricks | Motivating Players to Unlock Their Extra Gear
Drey Ricks is motivating players to unlock their extra gear by providing athletes with strategic tools to help them under pressure.
One of the tools are mantras, mantras are very effective and popular practice with athletes to enhance their sports performance and to help keep them going when things get tough. Positive, motivational and inspirational self-talk has been helping professional athletes win for decades.
As a Basketball Performance Therapist & Analyst Drey Ricks believes at all levels of sports performance, it’s not just physicality, but the athlete’s will and focused determination that drives them to perform at their highest level when it matters most. Mantras unlock athletes extra gear when they need an extra shot of courage and strength.
Many young athletes want to know how to perform mantra, Drey Ricks has simplified the method. “Mantras are to be short, positive, instructive and actionable. Repeat your mantra to direct your mind away from the negative thoughts, feelings and distractions and to focus your mind on the helpful thoughts, feelings, and experiences you desire.”
