GET OUT OF THE CHALK BOX
I was listening to a podcast awhile back with Dr. Oz & Jordan Peterson. Jordan Peterson mentioned the idea of an “indomitable divine Spirit” that we all have.
My mind caught on quickly to this idea and reflected on what means. Indomitable means “Impossible to subdue or defeat.”
Isn’t that what every athlete believes and wants?!
As I work with athletes, and many other people as well, I find an indomitable divine desire constantly present.
Competitive athletes want to go beyond limits, they want to push through hard things, they want to feel the courage surge through them as they move through fear.
Not just for a win, but out of curiosity of self. What else is the athlete capable of? This is a driving force or question that lingers behind the feelings that drive their incredible actions.
What’s most frustrating to an athlete’s mental constructs are anything that feels limiting. When self-doubts enter their mind and they chose to believe them in anyway, they might start to feel stuck and incapable to moving along the desired path of self-revelation.
Wondering if they are good enough to go to that next level. Wondering if they are good enough just as a human being. I believe everyone is enough without anything or any act or any award. But, does that knowledge satisfy? NO!
Because we know there is so so so much more– much better, much deeper purpose than to sit and stagnate. So, how can you help your athlete thrive when they are sitting with self-doubt?
How can you help their indomitable divine desire to continue when they are feeling discouraged? That desire to create beyond their current possibilities and mental beliefs? They need to learn how to manage their minds. In sports, we call this mental training, mental toughness, sports psychology.
Doesn’t matter what you want to call it, they are all forms of learning how to manage your mind instead of letting your mind manage you and how you feel.
P.S. I am a confidence coach for competitive and professional athletes. I teach tools that open up the impossible goals in a way that allows minds to consider & think of as possible. That make those dreams they fall asleep too at night become a reality. I use cognitive science based tools and evolutionary psychology as my foundation.
