The mind-body connection is very powerful. For everything you think in your mind, your body has a reaction, regardless of whether it is real or imagined. For example, have you ever had a bad dream? Usually, you will wake up and your heart is racing, you are sweating and very agitated, even though all you were doing was sleeping.
With this premise, it becomes unmistakable how necessary it is to train both the mind and body for peak performance. At the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, there were approximately 20 Sport Psychology Consultants there working with athletes. It has also been noted that 1/3 of the golfers on the major tours work with a Sports Psychologist or Consultant. Slowly but surely athletes, teams, coaches and managers are not only saying that they feel sports is mental, but they are doing something about it.
In sports, many things are left to chance. Sports are predictably unpredictable. Why let your mental mindset be another one of those things? There's no reason for your mental game to be your Achilles heel! You have the power and authority to control your mind. Our tools and resources will help you remove psychological barriers that can get in the way of peak performance and give you some control over your own performance.
Up until about a decade ago, a Sports Psychologist or Consultant was only considered necessary if the athlete had a problem. Luckily, this stigma has changed. People are realizing that no matter how good you are, you can always improve, and one way to improve yourself is to become well-versed in performance enhancement techniques. There is no room for complacency; the complacent ones get left behind. This philosophy holds true not only in sports but in business as well.
"Sports is 90-95% mental."
