We are all human, yet as athletes there is this persona that we need to live up to, making us ‘larger than life’ – and the pressure is huge! How can you be a competitor and human all at the same time? The physical strain on the body, the pressure of yourself, your team, the fans, and your coaches can be overwhelming.
Creating the same emotional strength that your body has to perform is key to high performance, on and off, the playing surface. Don’t let your commitment to your sport and the pressures that you’re under side swipe the fact you are still an emotional being. It is possible to be human and a competitor at the same time.
No different than having a coach for your sport, a coach for your mind, body and soul will help you step up your game so that you can take it the next level – kindly and sustainably.
