I've been looking for new ways to boost my confidence with game. As we all know, confidence is so important.

One of the best techniques I've learnt recently is to use your body language to gain confidence. By carrying yourself in a confident way you will both come across as more confident to others and convince yourself that you are more confident.

This works because of the connection between mind and body. It has been proven that by acting confidently we produce feelings of confidence.

In reality, I would recommend carrying yourself as would someone who you think of as being very confident; e.g. head up, shoulders back and taking up physical space.

I would be interested to hear what others think of this technique and whether you have benefited.

Read "The Inner Game of Tennis" by Timothy Gallwey. It has extraordinary insights.
Another great read is "Zen and the Art of Archery".
