Sports Psychology: Four Principles of Flight

Principles of Flight

Just as flight is predictable; your success is predictable too.

There are four forces acting on the airplane all the time during airplane is flying.  The four principles of flight are:  (1) Lift, (2) Gravity force or Weight, (3) Thrust, and (4) Drag.

1. Lift: We all need pressure to lift up our performance. We need to raise our personal standards; people who will pressure us, encourage us and inspire us to reach new heights. The right support group helps creates lift.

2. Weight: There will always be people who will try to weigh you down. We need to get rid of the people  that weigh us down.

3. Thrust: Thrust is defined as the forward direction pushing or pulling force developed by aircraft engine; Your thrust come from the right coach, training and team around you. We need to be in the right training environment to have a chance to fly.

4  Drag:    The drag is the friction of the air as it meets and passes over an airplane and its components. To succeed is sport; you need to overcome drag. There will always forces which opposes your forward motion and drag down. Successful teams and athletes remove all the things that cause friction and interfere with their performance.
