The present study aimed to explore the relationships between flow, mindfulness, and self- talk, in  Iranian athletes. 112  participants with experience in competitive sports completed an  questionnaire comprising the Iranin Dispositional Flow Scale, the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire- short form, and the Automatic Self-Talk Questionnaire for Sports. Results confirmed the moderate, positive connection between flow and mindfulness (r = 0.44). Moreover, linear regression analysis indicated that mindfulness appeared to significantly predict flow (F = 50.395 [1, 211], p < 0.001). Furthermore, negative- and positive self-talk correlated moderately with both flow (r = -0.52 and r = 0.59, respectively) and mindfulness (r = -0.45 and r = 0.23, respectively). Additionally, self-talk (negative and positive combined) significantly predicted flow and mindfulness, accounting for 51% and 22% of the variance, respectively. Investigating potential win differences in terms of dispositional flow, mindfulness, and self-talk, was a secondary aim of the present study. Significant differences were found for every variable of interest; in this sample, win appeared to demonstrate higher levels of flow, mindfulness, and positive self- talk, and lower levels of negative self-talk, in comparison to failed.
