The Characteristics of your Elite Football Brain
What should you do if you're having a slump in form? How should you be before or during training, to maximise your development? Your brain is the one thing that holds you back and the one thing that determines your performance either when you are under pressure or when you aren’t under enough pressure.
I can teach you brilliant techniques to deal with all this. However, as when building anything, in order to create significant and consistent improvements that withstand pressure and future problems, we need solid foundations.
The foundation to all my work lies in the Two Brains & the Performance State. In simple terms, you will learn how to harness your Red and Green Brain power in order to optimise Blue Performance State. How to know exactly what to do and why you should do it—and vitally, what not to do.
The worst state for performance on or off the pitch. Here are just some of the effects this will have on you:
You dwell on everything negative. It allows you to build negatives into catastrophes and blow them all out of proportion.
You feel like a shadow of the player/person that you know you’re capable of being.
Your mind drifts to what you’ve done wrong, or what others will say about you. You can’t be immersed and in your best zone, destroying your performance.
Controlling a ball, passing, shooting or scoring are nowhere to be seen. The brilliant parts of your brain for top performance are no longer in control.
Perfect for your life off the pitch—although you may relate to experiecing this in your game. Some characteristics are:
Feelings of wellbeing, calmness and being in a good place.
Body and mind in a great place for metabolising food and cell regeneration. Recovery is effective and efficient.
Confidence and inner belief are high.
Your ability to overcome problems with complex and solution-focussed thinking is at its peak.
Think back to a game where everything was brilliant...
The Blue Performance State harnesses the power of both your Red and Green brains to optimise your game for consistent & brilliant performance. It's the perfect way to play at your very best, every game.
Those many years of training come out naturally and instinctively. You play to your best, almost effortlessly.
Feeling at one with the game. So immersed in the moment that it feels like the game is the only thing that exists for that time.
... of your environment. Not just where your team-mates are and the opposition runs, but you are able to accurately anticipate where you need to be and your next passage of play
Helps you compete at your best level with brilliant intensity. This measured and brilliant level of aggression (not anger) maximises and complements - rather than destroys - every part of your game.
