Take care of your mental health
How you think during the game is essential to the final outcome of the match. If you feel tired or have had a bad day — take it easy and reschedule your grinding session for another time.
Get better at clutches
Together with your team, practice clutches as a form of training. You may fail many times, but that's the point — practice makes perfect.
Optimize your CSGO Settings
Make sure your in-game settings and hardware are good enough. Check if your hardware and in-game settings are not one of your weaknesses or reasons you are losing games. And if so — do something about it if possible.
