In basketball you want to forget about the past because it will haunt you forever. If you did bad in a game, don’t think about just worry about how will you improve or contribute next time. The best basketball players have a 5 second memory span on the basketball court. Furthermore, basketball players that will succeed are the ones that don’t even think about the past.
I took an english test that i think i failed in, but i will just worry about the next test. This will help you forget what you did on the last and focus on the one thats coming up. This will improve your test grades.
