David is a Mental Toughness Practitioner, as well as a Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC) Registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist. He has successfully supported athletes, teams and organisations for over 10 years in order to ensure that they perform at their maximum more often.
He has a comprehensive knowledge around the development of Mental Toughness, a plastic personality trait, which determines or limits people to deal effectively with change, challenges and stressors. In today’s climate, during the Coronavirus pandemic this quality is becoming more and more valuable to individuals, teams and organisations.
Most people at some point experience demotivation, where they lack interest and enthusiasm about something that they have once really enjoyed. This episode #189 is for you if you have reached that point, or if you are experiencing a loss of form or a performance plateau.
Today, I share an approach which is connected to goal-setting and performance profiling and often yields positive outcomes, where athletes frequently feel a lot better about their situation and experience being re-energised as a result.
Key Learning Points
- On performing at your best some great questions to ask yourself include: What do I think about? What emotions do I experience? What will other people notice in my actions and behaviours?
- Aim to note down 25 qualities that are associated with your best performances, then whittle the list down to the 5 most impactful, that can help you turn around your form or the situation that you find yourself in.
- Goal setting can be an overwhelming process for some people.
- Use a SMART approach when creating action plans for the 5 most impactful areas.
