One of essential cricket tips I ever learned was that of goal setting. The ability to set goals and effectively motivate yourself to achieve them are two essential cricket tips and skills that will help you achieve success in any cricket season or sport.
Starting a cricket season without goals could be compared to batting blindfolded in dark. What would be your chance of hitting ball? It is essential to set goals at start of season to aim for: How many runs, wickets or catches will you takes? Giving yourself a target to aim for will help focus your mind and mentally prepare you for setting plans to achieve them.
If when you start your cricket season, you have no goals and aim at nothing; is it not unlikely that you will hit nothing and achieve nothing? If you haven’t set goals, start now and set yourself goal to score 250 runs or take 60 wickets by end of season, then plan how you will do it.
To set effective goals there are a few things you need to know about yourself which will affect how you set your goals. You are affected by, environment in which you live, your experience and knowledge, your attitude and dreams and visions for future.
When you set your goals you need to decide what you want and when you want to achieve each goal. You should spend time writing down your goals and display them in a prominent position where you will see them daily to remind yourself to stay motivated and focused. Cross off your goals once they’ve been achieved, add new ones to ensure when you reach your goals, you can further them and take your cricket to next level.
