Research over the past 10-15 years has been undeniable in terms of what the most important aspect of human performance is: Mindfulness. Whether it is school, work, relationships, or sports, a person is at their best when they are fully present. When the mind or body is worried about making mistakes, getting hurt, or overthinking every word or decision you make, you are splitting your focus and attention with all of that internal conflict. Athletes have often described the feeling of playing their best games as it being effortless, intense yet calm, free from thought almost like living in slow motion. They, of course, are describing what it feels like to be in the zone or "flow state" – the most optimum state of human performance as accessed through 100% intentional focus on whatever happens to be the most important thing from moment to moment. 

 

We can teach you positive self-talk, goal setting, visualization, pre game preparation, grit, emotional regulation skills, but none of this will make an impact until you learn about your internal world: your thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. By teaching you how to decrease the noise, the distractions inside, and by learning about your values and personality, you will have an incredibly strong foundation for traditional sport and performance psychology tools to take root.
