The Odds are Stacked Against You
There isn't an athlete out there that doesn't want to improve some aspect of their performance. Whether it be to shave off a couple strokes, .016 seconds or a slice on their serve, improvement is part of the sport. Most athletes spends 100 of hours practicing their moves and don't think to look at the limiting beliefs and mental programs installed from your life experiences.
However, most of the professional athletes know that practice is all important, but understand that having their mental blocks removed is the difference between first place and second. Because of this, they know that once those blocks are gone, they will absolutely perform at their highest level, whatever that is.
Many of these issues include; anxiety, loss of confidence, fear of re-injury, recovery from injuries, loss of range of motion, past performance trauma, mechanical challenges, fear and doubt, stress, relief from pain, lack of consistency, improve focus, improve mental discipline.
Many athletes have said that it's not about being a better athlete. There is a correlation between an athlete having a clear state of mind and reaching their full potential and perform to their maximum under the pressure of the game.
Simply remove the blocks in the way of them performing at their highest level, whatever that is. The highest level isn't the same for every athlete. Not every athlete has the talent to win. Not every athlete has the talent to have a high batting average or set records in their sport.
There are two major areas that factor into an athlete's statistical success. The first area has to do with all the issues mentioned above: injuries, anxiety, loss of confidence, etc. This is the area that I can absolutely have a big impact on and have had great success with in removing all those blocks.
The second area involves factors that also go into their statistical success that I can't control. These include: their level of talent; their amount, commitment, and quality of practice; whether they continue to tap as needed; their nutrition (many athletes have very poor nutritional habits); competition conditions; weather; the defense they play against and the defensive level of talent. This second area that I can't control plays a much larger factor in statistical results.
It is no secret that emotional states affect athletic performance. Athletes everywhere know this and the phenomenon sometimes goes by the names of "the mental part of the game", "the inner winner", and so on. How about you? Contact us for your initial consultation.
