How important is the Mental Game for Athletes?
In the 1980's, the Russian and East German Olympic athletes took the world by storm, winning record numbers of medals and setting world records. Performance enhancing drugs? No, Mental Game Development.
No matter what your level of play, we have the tools to teach you how to develop a strong mental game. In the past decades research in sports psychology has given us a core set of tools that help us develop important skills for success in athletics as well as sports.
The 6 core skills are:
- Positive Affirmation and Mindset
- Goal Setting
- Focus Control
- Emotional Control
Our 6D Sports Mental Game journal guides athletes to adopt these 6 core skills as habits. These skills transform not only your game, but your life as well. How effectively you can develop of all of these skills depends on your personal level of SELF-AWARENESS and commitment. Getting to know the way your mind is wired is simple, but the results are profound. This is why we recommend that all athletes who are serious about deveoping their mental game begin with our Behavioral Style Assessments and our Sports Axiology Assesments before setting out on your journey with the 6D Sports Mental Game Journal.
Our targeted assessments are like looking at the wiring diagram of your mind and emotional habits. These give athletes essential overview of their current mental condition showing strengths and weaknesses not easily discovered even by great coaches and sports psychologists. Our Mental Game coaching services combine the 6D Mental Game Journal with the assessment results, allowing us to personally guide each athlete to greater mental strength, awareness, and satisfaction in their sports.
Any athlete, at any level will benefit from this program, guaranteed! WHY?
Athletic performance training, nutrition, strength training, and tactical training prepare the athlete's body to perform, but re-polishing the tires is not going to help if you keep blowing fuses or getting wires crossed. How can we make sure that all of your circuits are functioning and that you have the tools to keep them working?
Great athletes and coaches know that a strong MENTAL GAME builds a foundation for consistent athletic success. Most athletes spend so much time and effort on their physical training that unless sports psychology or other mental development is built into their program, there is little energy left for developing the mental game. This means that the most important components (self-awareness, goal setting, interacting with others and coaches, coachability, mental toughness, dealing with stress and injury) are all left up to chance. Athletes who do not develop the mental side of the game are always at the mercy of under-developed awareness and emotional habits. How many athletes with great physical potential can not make it to the next level because their mental game is under-developed? The same habits and behaviors can consistenly get in your way and keep you from finding satisfaction and acheiving your goals.
It has been proven that athletes who dedicate even small amounts of time to improving their mental game, consistently outperform those who focus only on physical training. Why is it that so little attention is paid to the developing MENTAL TOUGHNESS, MIND POWER, and the MENTAL GAME? It is time for all athletes to have access to the same knowledge that business leaders and world-class athletes have been using for decades.
