What is Mental Performance Coaching?
There are three factors that influence our sporting ability:
- Our mental performance
- Our technical skills
- Our fitness/nutrition
Although many athletes will spend a lot of time on their fitness and technical skills, the mental side of the game is often neglected. Without training our minds, you can find your performances and attitude are being limited and potential is not being reached.
Mental Performance Coaching is the art of enhancing the mind and turning doubts and anxieties that hinder performance into strengths and motivators.
Why is it important?
As we know, even before we start an activity, we can often find a number of reasons for failure:
- Bad weather
- Lack of practice
Essentially, we can find ourselves performing badly because we are not using our minds in a positive way. As a result, we can form limiting beliefs about ourselves which leave us expecting failure rather than success.
By enhancing self-belief, dealing with how you respond to training on those dark and cold nights, setting goals and maintaining a positive attitude it is possible to make a significant impact on your performance levels. Once you can silence the ‘Running Reaper’ – the voice in your head that tells you that you’ll fail – you can overcome these limits and free yourself from your mental shackles.
When you train your brain to rise above the negatives and embrace the positives, your physical performance will benefit, and your mental wellbeing can go from strength to strength.
Mental Performance Coaching isn’t just a tool or a skill exclusive to sports and physical activity: it can be applied to many aspects of day-to-day life. By eliminating the doubts, training your mind can help you...
- Improve confidence and self esteem
- Cope with stress and anxiety
- Deal with fear and phobias
- Improve relationships
- Gain confidence for speaking in public
- Overcome limiting beliefs
- Stop unhelpful habits
- Eliminate negative thoughts and self-talk
