Player Advice: Want to be a confident player? Train like you are putting pennies in your piggy bank every time you train with your team and on your own. If you only train with your teammates then you will only have as much currency as everyone else on your team. When you train on your own remember that there is an opponent out there that you will face who is saving up pennies too, and you never know when you will face them. There will be games when you have to pay the price for success. True confidence comes from the knowledge that you have more money in your piggy bank than anyone you will face, and that if you have to crack that bank wide open, you will be able to see all the hard work you accumulated, and will have enough.
