“Knowing the psychological mechanisms of Natan’s functioning, perfectionism immediately comes to the fore. However, looking more closely, analysing the details, individual matches and conversations, it turns out that this is not the kind of need for perfection and insatiability lined with fear. “What will the coach think?”, “Who am I going to disappoint if I don’t do it?”, “What will the teammates think if I can’t do it?” are foreign questions in this case.
Natan is a case of perfectionism based on a desire for development, passion and the joy of progress, improvement. A player who wants to keep learning, and above all to use the knowledge and skills he has acquired. The constant need to strive for balance in maintaining self-confidence that does not become pride, setting realistic but at the same time ambitious goals that drive self-improvement, the ability to accept criticism and self-criticism without undermining self-esteem. Internal motivation encouraged only from the outside, which gives great commitment and determination in everyday work. The future, passion and joy of what you do.”
