Should people catch it or drop it?


Last night, on BBC Radio 5 Live, there was a discussion about ‘Pressure in Elite Sport’. The panel was talking about the psychological pressure that the Australian cricket side of the late 90s and early 2000s used to inflict on the opposition. Matthew Hayden, the former Australian left hander, said that much of that was possible because of the amazing team spirit and positive energy within the squad.

He then used a phrase, a mantra amongst the players, which immediately stuck in my mind.

“Is your attitude worth catching?”

Like many phrases from an Australian, it’s straight to the point!

So…is yours?
