What is your mindset when you go into a bout? Do you have a winning attitude? There is the old adage, "The person who believes that they can and the person who believes they can't are both correct." When you go into a bout you have to have to frame your mind in a positive outset.
Many of you had heard me talk about your frame when you get on the strip. When you get on the strip, tell yourself, "This is my strip. I am either going to beat you or this will be the hardest bout you are going to fence all day." Have the proper mental mindset when you approach your bout and if you do happen to lose, be a gracious loser.
