What was missing is the mental preparation for things going wrong.

    Addiction to DRAMA. Drama create a condition in the brain that triggers the reward system of the brain. The worst part is that your brain acclimates to one level of drama and then needs something more dramatic to get the same reward.

It does not matter if it is real... following politics... endlessly watching the news... or following reality tv... the rewards part of the brain sucks you down the drain.

    It is easy to be a gracious winner. It is classy to be a gracious loser. Where did Cam Newton go wrong?

    Problem one. His mental prediction did not account failure. He was so certain of what would happen that when he had problems, mentally he fell apart.

    Let me be clear…. he had the skills to win that game. What was missing is the mental preparation for things going wrong.

    As I watched the game it was obvious though his body language and behavior that he was rattled. It started on the first drive when he missed some passes by overthrowing them.

    Cam Newton’s state was so amped up that he could not throw. Then he overcompensated by trying harder. More effort in the same direction that is not working just makes things worse.

    As his frustration grew it began to affect the rest of the team. When working as a group or team and you are the leader, your state leads their state.

    It has been said that when you mentally rehearse you should imagine yourself doing things perfectly. That is a terrible way of doing things because the rest of the world will not cooperate. You have to rehearse things going wrong and then what you will do to recover.

    The more reality mismatched what Cam Newton predicted the worse his state deteriorated.

    Even in the post game interview he was not prepared for the possibility that he would be sitting there doing the losing interview. He was upset and ended up walking out.

    On the other side was Peyton Manning. When he got sacked you could not even see a state shift in him because he has been around long enough to know that is part of the game. His mental state was steady all game long.

    What should Cam have done?

    He should have mentally rehearse getting intercepted, being behind and having things fall apart and then rehearsed what he would to to get things on track. What would he say to the team? How would the strategy change? Where would his focus be?

    You have to practice failing in order to keep making progress. If you don’t when you have a problem you will be lost. That is where Newton made his mistake. He did not practice failing and was clearly lost in the second half.

    His emotions clouded his ability and the game fell apart.

    Your mindset is just as important if not more important than your skillset.
