Here we are, at the start of a new year, where we, athletes (like everybody else), make a fresh start and swear allegiance to brand new goals and good resolutions.
Yes, only as philosopher Jeremy Bentham wrote “In principle and in practice (…) the rarest of all human qualities is consistency”. And so chances are high, for a lot of athletes, that most of this enthusiasm outburst will be short-lived and soon forgotten. Like last year… and the year before.
Why? Well, as you know, when what is natural is driven off, it returns at a gallop. Let’s face it: reaching a new goal is quite audacious, it implies energy, struggle, progress, or to put it in more practical words: it implies that you change your routine.
And that’s the catch. All athletes like to see themself successful and get easily psyched up imagining the moment where they step on the podium, but they don’t necessarily foresee the process or know how to implement their game plan. Some even confess that they hope for a short-cut to save time and effort…
That’s human after all, but the truth is that process is at the core of success. And only positive thinking and good will won’t be enough. You need to change and you need to do the work. Reaching your goal is a journey.
There is no short-cut, but you will surely reach your goal sooner if you start your journey toward peak performance with a map.
We can help you to “get there”.
We will work with you to plan what to do, why, and how to do it.
Because it takes more than a touch of willpower or a sudden burst of new year’s motivation to change. You need consistency, you need to fight the powerful force of imbedded habits and create new effective patterns that will allow you to achieve your goals.
How do you make the jump from good to great, you ask?
Well, Aristotle nailed it about 2300 years ago, saying in substance that We are what we repeatly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit.
Practically we will help you to:
1. Establish measurable and achievable goals
2. Learn how to prioritize your goals and deal with distractions
3. Build a pre-game routine
4. Make the most of effective practice
5. Improve your training mindset
6. Create long-lasting habits
7. Be proactive in your quest for success
