Homework 2

CH 3 Reading DQ’s:
1. When people fail under pressure they most often attribute that failure to not being confident enough, but in this chapter over confidence isn’t a good thing either. Why is being overly confident a bad thing?

2. What is it about coaches attitude, due to personal issues, that influences athletes without knowing they are the cause to feel blame or fault? Do these athletes know that they have been doing something wrong, like not trying hard enough, or is it just plain empathy that causes this feeling?

3. I’ve noticed in myself that when its extremely hot I feel sluggish and tire easily. What is it about the climate that affects motivation and can this be overcome?

4. What differs in a persons mind to accept failure as learned helplessness or as a challenge they can overcome through continued effort?
