IMPROVE PERFORMANCE: MENTAL TRAINING FOR ATHLETES

Play pro: Finding the right people to surround yourself with can be challenging when you are an elite athlete. It takes the right combination of experience, understanding the nuances of competition, practical application and how the brain responds to this stimuli. 

As the founder of Souletics®, I can say this is what I know. It is what I have used throughout my life and what separates me from the pack. I am not someone that has just read about it; I am someone who has studied the psychology of sports and put it to use in all areas of my life. And I have helped others do the same.

I have over forty years of high level competition experience and twenty years of mindset coaching for athletes. My areas of focus include but are not limited to: sports psychology, building confidence, improving focus, developing unwavering commitment, how to find your confidence, positive self dialogue, visualization, how do you handle pressure, strategy development, energy management, injury rehabilitation, dealing with depression in athletes, anger management and choosing a complimentary partner for such a career choice as elite athletics. 

I am the author of peak performance book for atheletes, "Don't Stop The Swagger," which I wrote 15 years ago. The mindset book is subtitled, "Preparing the Mind, Body and Soul For Peak Performance". This was before "mind, body, soul" became a popular tag line, or "swagger" was a buzz word. My next level training is an online course that I walk users through, titled "The 7 Pillars Mental Dominion." I have outlined the top 4 pillars below in the next section. 

How to achieve mental strength and maintain elite high level performance is what I know, what I live and what I love to do. It is my gift and I would like to share it with you.

Mental Toughness Training For Athletes

Mental toughness in athletes is one of the main things that separates the winners from the losers. Also known as "long-suffering," it is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Mental toughness and perseverance aren't just about making it today, and it's not an excuse to be complacent in a bad situation. It's about the athlete becoming resolute in the pursuit of something he or she wants to achieve. It's about maintaining a focus, not being discouraged by the obstacles or trying to take the easy route. Mental toughness is listening to something deeper in yourself that says, "keep going."

It's about ignoring the critics and pushing through the struggle. Mental Strength is a secret to attaining success in life. If you want to know how to achieve goals, mental toughness training is one of the keys. Here at Souletics® we focus on helping develop a mind that is strong, flexible, problem solving and unbreakable. If you're going to make something in life, you're going to have to pay for it through hard work, mental strength and dedication.

Don't get distracted by the shiny facade of reality TV and pop culture. Real accomplishments don't come easy. They take daily action, mental fortitude, and they require endurance to run the race long enough to see the rewards of your hard work.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.” ― Nelson Mandela

If you're trying to accomplish something rare or uncommon, you will need mental toughness, a proper strategy and a team that includes a mindset coach. We are here to support you in achieving the uncommon dream! 

Mindset Coaching

For an athlete, I can't say it enough "Mindset is Everything." As Souletics® the mindset coach, we consider meditation for athletes and a healthy mindset to be the keys to peak performance. Our focus is on providing mental strategies for life, resulting in peak performance in all areas of your life. Today we’re talking about mindset coaching, which is how to train your brain to become sharper for athletic performance, and maintaining that sharpness as you age.

Many once believed that brain function peaks during early adulthood and then slowly declines, leading to memory issues and brain fog in what should be considered wisdom years. As a mindset coach I can say that external factors certainly contribute to this health decline and brain fatigue. However, with the right strategies, techniques, and coaching you can prolong and even promote higher levels of focus and creativity as you age.

Our modern, technology-driven, fast living, processed food buying habits are playing a significant role in cognitive decline like memory loss. Please think about the impact that external factors like diet and other bad habits have on athletic performance. These factors make it critical to limit exposure to toxins, stop eating processed foods and forcing ourselves to function on limited sleep. Much like a swimmer, sprinter or quarterback needs a coach, your mindset should be treated in the same way by giving yourself access to a mental coach.

A healthy lifestyle will result in a healthier brain and possibly encourage neurogenesis, which is new brain cell growth. This results in mental clarity, improved focus and increased cognitive action, which results in improved performance, longevity and more wins.

An additional factor is living a life of purpose; mindfulness will assist in keeping the mind inspired.

Meditation For Sport

Athletic competition is taxing, sometimes painful, physically demanding, and the mental portion is even more difficult.

I still compete so I can always relate to the athletes I am coaching. A mind that is not focused, clear from distractions, in control and sharp is a mind that makes mistakes, lets the errors create other mistakes and loses confidence. The result is lousy performance, which could cost you a scholarship, or a big contract. High levels of stress release cortisone which causes physical issues like fatigue, decreases your ability to focus and concentrate on the task at hand.

For years sports psychologists have stated that mindset is as big of a factor as peak physical fitness. Now we know this is true. During my collegiate and professional athletic career I used meditation without knowing what I was doing. It helped me reduce anxiety, stress, maintain confidence, and limit the other external obstacles that come with high-level athletics. Souletics® meditation for athletes and sports program is focused on positive visualization, building self-confidence and meditation mindfulness, which is thinking about a specific topic.

This is very different than new meditation, or other forms of meditation like transcendental meditation, which is about emptying the mind. When you empty the mind you are vulnerable to suggestions from external influences and other untrusted entities. Souletics® focuses on reflection for a sport, which is meditating on the specific outcome of a game, strategy and other nuances.

Why should you consider practicing meditation for athletic performance?

1. Mediation can support stress reduction, which directly results in better physical body function. The science is less cortisol in the system, which negatively impacts performance on many levels.

2. Meditation can prepare you for the competition. You can walk your mind through the process of competition and possible obstacles and challenges you may face.

3. Meditation can increase focus and mental clarity. By taking time to meditate you remove other external factors that can distract you from the task at hand.

If you are a beginning practitioner  or have advanced meditation practice, we can help. We provide customized meditation for athlete video programs unique to each athlete.
