Can you think of a time where you were playing so well and could do nothing wrong?
Can you also think of a time where it seems that no matter what you did you could do nothing right? This has nothing to do with your ability but EVERYTHING to do with your brain.
Just look at the problems that the being in the primitive/red brain gives us.
I’m sure you can relate to times when you’ve had these issues on and off the field.
As a professional footballer, you know that the best players are consistently on top form. Your value, your contract and your sponsorship deals are not a reflection of what you do in a handful of matches, they are a reflection of your consistent impact and form on a regular basis.
Most players train their skills and ability every day but leave their form and performance to chance.
I understand the stresses and pressures of your world and through my exclusive accelerator programs, I can help you to achieve the consistent form to always be at the top of your game. Having the potential to do great things on a football pitch means very little without being able to perform at your best consistently.
We think that the reasons for these issues occurring our beyond our control and a natural response to what is happening in the world around us.
The bad news for players is that because they think like this it is always going to be like this. Problems on or off the pitch. A run in bad form, or even a single event on the pitch from a bad tackle or a missed shot and the red brain gets a little more fuel. Some or all of the issues above get worse and worse.
The good news is that you are about to find out that what is happening doesn’t have to be down to random events occurring in our lives. Or difficulties happening on the football pitch.
I give you a practical understanding of the brain so you know exactly what to do and when, to ensure that you stay firmly in the blue/performance brain and reap the benefits that you can see in the next image.
Conditioning more than the body
Playing well occasionally is what happens to most players. They finish their careers knowing that they could and should have achieved so much more.
Playing well consistently is what separates the world beaters. The players that go on to have the limelight of the most amazing careers. Attracting the best deals and transfers to the best clubs.
A successful career isn’t about your capability. There are literally thousands of players that have had the capability of being world beaters but have never got anywhere near to what they were capable of. A successful career is about delivering your best performances week in and week out. Game after Game.
Managers will always play their most consistent performers and other players always want to play alongside those they can rely on.
When performances are consistently going well it’s easy. Just like with anything in life, when things are going well, your confidence is up, you feel good and everything you do is done at a brilliant level.
But what if this isn’t the case?
What if you’ve hit a difficult period. Maybe off the field events are negatively impacting on your game. Or maybe you’re not even sure why, but you just seem to be in a rut of bad form? Up until now you’ve left your performances and the mental side of your game to chance…
But as you are here right now I’m guessing you’d like to know what can be done?
The simple answer is… a lot.
Whether you’re on fire right now or struggling I can help you to achieve much more.
It’s time to recognise your potential
Every person I’ve ever worked with always says to me “I wish I’d done this earlier in my career”. But it doesn’t matter what has happened up until now. You need to decide that right now is the time.
It’s time to start realising that ‘hoping’ that you have a good game isn’t an approach that is going to get you to the heights that your career is capable of achieving.
I’m here to make you realise that you have so much more control on your life and your performances than you realise. More control on bouncing back from bad form as well as taking great form to even better levels.
Not only am I here to help you to realise this, I’m also here to help condition it into you, so that performing brilliantly consistently becomes a natural part of how you operate every day.
