About This Show
A PODCAST FOR ELITE ATHLETES, PARENTS, AND COACHES... As a Sports Performance Consultant, I've worked with hundreds of student-athletes, parents, mentors, and coaches. The most common hopes and dreams of these Student-Athletes and their support community are to get a D-1 scholarship, go Pro, or make it to the Olympics.
However, they're often held back by pains and fears that include self-doubt, peer pressure, fake friends, making mistakes in games or practice, and criticism from parents and coaches. These personal constraints lead to barriers and uncertainties: such as no confidence, laziness, and depression.
Sports Mastery has been formulated to help the motivated but struggling student-athlete to accomplish their hopes and dreams. But they can't do it alone! THEY NEED YOU, the parent, the mentor, the coach. This podcast provides the Student-Athlete and their support team with the systems and strategies to help them break through all barriers and limitations!
The tools I provide range from visualization exercises to print out reminders that you can tape to the fridge. You can even listen to each episode with your Student-Athlete. Use the episodes as a conversation starter... because your relationship with the Student-Athlete is PARAMOUNT TO THEIR SUCCESS. Start now by downloading my FREE guide: "5 Devastating Mistakes Every Elite Athlete Should Avoid” at http://www.SportsMastery.com

74: Respect The Process
RESPECT THE PROCESS “MOST PEOPLE CAN’T HANDLE BOREDOM. THAT MEANS THEY CAN’T STAY ON ONE THING UNTIL THEY GET GOOD AT IT. AND THEY WONDER WHY THEY’RE UNHAPPY." —50 Cent More often than not our position in sport or life is something that we endure. We wish the season to be over and dream of the future. We are not engaged in the daily activity of the sport. Being constantly distracted, we never harness our full mental powers. Mastering a sport, subject, skill, or trade is not as exciting as life outside work. We tend to be fanatics and focus on others hall-of-fame achievements. From such an angle, it is easy for us to be dazzled and see their success as stemming from genetics and perhaps some social factors. Kobe was just gifted. We could never reach his level, or so we think. But we are choosing to ignore that telling period in their lives, when each and every hall of famer underwent a rather tedious learning and training process in their sport. Know this: the real secret, the real formula for power in this world, lies in accepting the ugly reality that learning and training requires a process, and this in turn demands patience and the ability to endure hours of drudge work. KEYS TO MASTERY • Progress through trial and error. • Master something simple. Develop a pattern of confidence through the parts of your life that you take control over. • Internalize the rules of the game. “With a deepening knowledge of these rules you can begin to maneuver them for your purpose… Knowing how it works, you can take it apart— for good.” • Attune yourself to the details. “Often when you begin a project of any kind, it is from the wrong end. You tend to think first of what you want to accomplish, imagining the glory and money it will bring you if it succeeds. You then proceed to make this concept come to life. But as you go forward you often lose patience, because the small steps to get there are not nearly as exciting as the ambitious visions in your head.”
