No matter how good you are in your sport-specific skills, if you lack mental strength, you will not be able to celebrate the successes that correspond to your sporting potential. And it doesn’t matter whether you are a professional, semi-professional, amateur, junior or hobby athlete.
You will fail over and over again because of your mental challenges. This is extremely unfortunate, because it not only prevents your successes, but also spoils the joy of sport.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could go into training and competition without pressure, doubts or fears? And it is certainly crucial to stay calm and relaxed, especially in difficult and mentally challenging situations. It would certainly not be bad to be able to simply switch off blockages in the head or to cheat your weaker self, yes, precisely that voice in your head that continuously wants to prevent your success.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily withstand the pressure you put on yourself as well as the pressure that is beating down on you from outside. Do not see this pressure as a burden, but to be able to perceive it as a motivation?
And it would certainly be great not to let setbacks put you down, but to see them as motivation and incentive and to create a “now more than ever” mentality.
If you could just turn all these problems into positive and performance-enhancing ways, that would certainly take a lot of the load off your shoulders, wouldn’t it?
The solution is to break out of this downward spiral and embark on an upward spiral. Simply put, that’s clear. But I have good news for you: It’s not as difficult as you might imagine at the moment. On the contrary, it’s a lot easier than you think. All you need is the right guide.
The key to this is to improve your mental strength so much that you stop the downward spiral in the first step and then set the upward spiral in motion. You don’t need a lot of time or a sports mental trainer. You can teach yourself all of this yourself.
