Cool The difference between D1 and Pro: Hesitation

Skip to 39:45 or click the link below!

You want to know the difference between a top level pro and a Division 1 player? Hesitation. It cripples some of the most physically athletic players I've ever seen and cuts their dreams of playing pro short. They lack that "gut instinct" to make the right move. Sometimes that right move nets your 5 kills in less than 20 seconds.

How do you remove hesitation from your game? Instead of focusing on winning games at practice, why not focus instead on pushing yourself to the limit. Try and see what moves are possible. If you're not losing in practice, you're not trying hard enough to push yourself out of your comfort zone.

...when time and life moves on and we're only an afterthought in the rear view mirror, we'll at least have this. Something to say we were here, that we fought, and we played the game as hard as we could, because for a time, this was us, our struggle, our life.

Just did this at practice this past Sunday..I said you know what I'm not gonna worry about winning every point and just try new more aggressive moves..Went 50 doritto off break and got 3 kills..No one expected it

This is what practice is for. Try new things and put yourself in different scenarios and increase your knowledge and muscle/mental memory on what to do. This will prepare you for events because if you hesitate at an event I can guarantee you will not be happy with the results. Make smart moves and get kills.

Great advice, this is why I moved up 3 divisions in 3 seasons. Even playing as a back corner player, i would make aggressive moves if I could shoot my mirror, or others to chop the field.
