I am not saying that learning to manage your Emotions isn’t important.
If you struggle with anxiety, doubt, stress and fear… you will struggle to access your best.

When I work with individual athletes and when I consult with teams/organizations… one of the most important things I do to help them move toward their goals is to make sure they understand ALL the pieces of the Mental Game puzzle.

Psychology is your emotions. You can use them. Or you can get abused by them.
Neuroscience is your mind. More specifically your Focus. It can be measured with EEG and trained in 10 minutes per day.
Physiology is your body. It reacts to your mind and your emotions. If your Focus is poor or you are getting abused by your emotions… your body will not do what you have trained it to do.
You will improve your performance under pressure if you increase your ability to manage your emotions.
You will increase consistency and perform at your peak more often if you strengthen and tune your Focus.
You will maximize the effect of all your training if you understand how heart rate, muscular tension and breathing affect your physiology during performances.

Understanding the BIG PICTURE of the Mental Game AND learning how to efficiently train all three key areas of Mental Fitness is the core of why athletes, teams and organizations come to me when they want better results than they have been getting in the past.
