Helping You Gain A Mental Edge

How Can I Fulfil My Potential?

This is a very important question you should ask yourself

Many athletes and coaches won’t explore the topic of how to achieve your full potential – I’d encourage you to be one of the few that do. So how can you convert your potential so that this is your best or most enjoyable year or season yet.

In my experience, there are too few athletes and coaches who seek to look in the mirror long and hard enough to then squeeze out almost everything they can from the time and resources that they have.  Instead, for most athletes and coaches, they live with the nagging feeling of “if only I’d done this” or “I wish I had tried that” or they live in blissful ignorance of what might have been. The result ends up that their skills and talents are under-developed and that they really could have achieved much, much more.

So what is stopping you from achieving your full potential?

Perhaps it’s procrastination, and a failure to deliver on the promises that you said you would or it may be one of the points in these blog posts.

If procrastination is your issue or your child’s, you’ll likely benefit from listening to our latest episode of Demystifying Mental Toughness where you’ll hear me talk about 3 ways to help young athletes get better organised.
