Up until now there has been no practical and agreed-upon solution to handle athletes’ most pressing issues. But here’s the challenge: the coaches who work with athletes are experts in what they know, which is helping athletes develop skills, mechanics, and movements and sports psychologist work with athletes to improve performance, but only from a psychological perspective. So what is the one thing that is missing? The factor that can change everything? The understanding of, implications for, and ability to control the energy of performance—this is what’s at the core for world class athletes!
When it comes to high performance, the vast majority of athletes are simply unaware of why they perform well one day and poorly the next. Rarely, if ever, does skill level change from day to day or even moment to moment. But what IS constantly changing is the athlete’s energy. These performance up and downs often create a love/hate relationship that leads to joys and disappointments. Simply stated, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, athletes just don’t get from their sport what it’s capable of providing.
