As I shared in past writings, gaining an edge on the competition can take on many points of focus. One can improve their strength, agility, skills, and speed. However, one of the skill sets that often gets overlooked is that of the MIND. I realize that the reason is often a lack of understanding of what it means, along with some MYTHS that cloud one’s understanding keeping them at a distance from the experience. I am writing about some myths because if that is the reason why you have not pursued this work I want to attempt to take away that barrier.
Myth 3: Doing MENTAL SKILLS work will be boring, painful, and a waste. I can do this on my own by just trying harder and being more positive.
If you talk to the people I work with, you will find that some started with this very thought. It was not too long before their Mental Skills work became their absolute FAVORITE part of training. It was INSPIRING, INSIGHTFUL, ENCOURAGING, HELPFUL, and maybe most importantly, SO BENEFICIAL!
Often people build up a perception in their mind before they ever have an experience. Some of the fears people often have are centered around the fear that they will have to share deeply personal, vulnerable, and maybe even long-held shame concerning mistakes made in the past. There might be a time and place for one to dive into these types of topics but, building a mental skills toolbox is not one of them. Different professionals specialize in this type of work.
A mental skills coach is concerned with teaching and training the skills that are most important in the midst of competition.
The building of confidence, overcoming failure, dealing with distractions, overcoming the fear of failure to name a few. These conditions can be overcome, and you can thrive in spite of these challenges. A GOOD MENTAL SKILLS COACH can give you an edge few others have. Not only that, but these skills can be transferred to every area of your life and give you the same kind of edge.
I believe that there is no more exciting, relevant, and inspiring work to do than the work that becomes part of you no matter what you are doing or where you go. This work is exciting, powerful, and enlightening on so many levels.
