It is now recognized that much of the success in sport resides not only in the muscle, but in the attitude a sportsman can have while performing his sport. It is said that the true opponent is not out on the playing field, but within the sportsman himself.
Some obstacles are:
- Focus more on any problems one might encounter
- Inappropriate degree of confidence (too high or too low)
- The past tormenting one with internal dialog of sabotage
- Limiting beliefs that do not allow for improvement
- Feeling demotivated after a failure
The purpose of mental coaching is to train the sportsman in order to reduce the intensity of the obstacles, and to provide them with more positive and constructive approaches.
- Use your mind to speed up performance improvement
- Silence any internal sabotage voices
- Surpass your presumed limits more easily
- Increase internal motivation
- Repeat success more consistently, less sporadically
- Interiorize the winning models of the champions, make them your own
- Keeping yourself in an optimized state of mind
- Overcome Traumas and Blocks Derived from Past Failures
