WHY MIGHT YOU NEED ME, A MENTAL COACH FOR ATHLETES?
Today’s elite athletes are well trained and well coached. The proper mechanics has been studied and equipment to test, measure, and video the proper mechanics is available. Physical therapist are more knowledgeable and educated today on how to treat an injury than ever before. Everything that the physical body would need to perform, excel, and endure is understood, utilized and incorporated.
What about the mental aspect of the athlete? Is it as well trained to excel and endure? Only one athlete per event can stand at the top of the podium. Only one athlete can win gold. Only one in millions that compete can win gold and stand on top of the winner’s podium.
Today’s athletes are better trained and prepared than ever before thus, to stand on the top requires as much training for the mind as training for the physical body.
Everything in our lives is the result of our beliefs. All of our thoughts, feelings, actions, reaction, choices, decisions, and experiences are the result of beliefs.
Do you choke under pressure?
Do you get stuck in analysis paralysis?
Can you learn and rebound from your defeats?
Are you paralyzed by your doubts?
Can you perform in a very bright, global spotlight?
Are you secure enough to be powerful?
Is your identity that of “struggle” and “the underdog?”
Champions are rare. If being a champion was easy then everyone would be a champion and a champion would not be anything special. It is in the difficulty of the task that, once accomplished, makes a champion great.
To be a great athlete, the mental training is just as important, if not more important, than the physical training. To stand at the top requires our beliefs to match our physical capabilities, desires, and abilities.
This is the work I do…healing dysfunctional and disempowering beliefs, thoughts, feeling, and memories on an subconscious level as well as cellular so that an athlete can excel.
