Royals on a roll: How believing you will win helps you win

Bad teams believe they will lose, so the first thing that goes wrong reinforces that belief. Someone makes an error in the first inning and a dugout full of players think: "Well, here we go." If something goes wrong they believe it’s just the first in a string of things that will go wrong. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy: play with your head down, play like you believe you will lose and there’s a good chance you will.
