The psychology of improving performance
Deciding to take on a physical challenge is one aspect of your performance, your mind and the power of your thoughts is another. The psychology of any sports performance is now taken extremely seriously and should be apart of any good coaching programme. Winning over your "mind" is one of the most powerful tools you will learn to help you succeed at your sport. Whether this is a personal challenge or you are a professional who perhaps feels that you are not performing as well as you had hoped.
Your mind can make you quit or tell you, you can do this and bring great strength from within you to complete your challenge. One negative, one positive. Which one do you want more of to help you achieve? With my various techniques we can quiet or get rid of the negative part and replace it with such a strong supportive part, that you will achieve what you set out to do.
You have a training plan? You have a nutrition plan? You have a coach? Do you have a mind plan?
In 2014 I challenged myself to compete in an Ironman. I had all of the above, but I know that my journey would not have been as successful without the mind skills I have. I was going to be pulled from the race - twice for time cut offs becoming near. (marshal was very negative) Before my 'mind training' I know I would have given up. But I knew how to motivate myself to keep going and eventually, cross that finish line. For those of you who do not know what an Ironman is, you swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and then run a marathon. My story is posted on another part of this site for those who wish to know more.
So what is your challenge? What do you want to achieve, together we can make it happen.
