Do you look like a winner? Do you walk like a winner?
Do you carry yourself like a champion?
In my years as an athlete, coach, and mental coach, I’ve seen countless athletes perform exactly the way their body language "looked."
I’m guilty of this myself.
You may have just made an error or maybe you didn’t get the starting position, or a coach just yelled at you. You drop your head, slouch your shoulders, and move slower than usual. A display of disappointment in yourself.
However, when you carry yourself like you’ve been defeated, you almost always become defeated.
Brooks Koepka recently won the US Open, for back-to-back victories in the major tournament.
After his 2017 win, many people tried to downplay his success, saying the result came from an overly compliant course.
Koepka commented: "I always feel like I’m overlooked. I couldn’t care less. I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing."
Koepka started this season off a little rocky, having wrist surgery that kept him away from the course for four months. He missed the Masters and the cut in his first tournament back in May.
Him and Johnson, who was the 2016 Open champion and world No.1 golfer, played together on Sunday in the final round.
Both Johnson and Koepka are competitive. Koepka took a lead in the first five holes, one that he would never surrender. Bob Koepka, his father said, "He had his game face on."
"He’s got that Koepka look. He carries himself with a ton of confidence."
Koepka had the look of a winner on Sunday, which resulted in a back-to-back US Open win.
When you walk like a champion, you become a champion. As Koepka demonstrated in the major win on Sunday.
A mentor once told me, " It is impossible to have your head down and positive body language, and it’s impossible to have your head up and poor body language."
In other words, when you carry yourself like a winner, you can perform like a winner.
When you carry yourself like you’ve failed, your performance reflects this.
To help you walk like a champion, you want to develop proactive confidence and maintain your composure through competition.
Also, you want to be aware of your facial expressions and body language, especially after you make a mistake or become frustrated.
Always carry yourself like you want to perform, as Koepka presented in the 2018 US Open.
