Table Tennis Players/Students – Avoid This Word

RSS
I “can’t

On a daily basis, many of my table tennis students say the words, I “can’t” as it relates to learning a new stroke,  learning a new serve, enduring through physical training, and many other table tennis related activities.

As a table tennis coach, when I hear a player say these words, here is what I’m hearing:

I

Certainly

Am

Not

Trying

Often, when a player has declared that he can’t do something, then he will stop giving his best effort or give up all together.  Therefore, I no longer allow my students to use these words.  Instead, I ask them to say something like: I haven’t fully developed it yet and I’m working toward my goals!

Positive thinking equals positive results in table tennis.
