I was watching Jordan Spieth, Professional Golfer, the other day in a playoff.

As a coach of over achievers both in the business world and the sport’s world I know their challenges and desires. My experience has shown me that they run parallel and their goals the same, they want to be the best.

I recall working with a young golfer whose goal was to make Team Canada.  They already had dedicated many years from a very young age to develop their skills, both physical and technical, but the one piece that was missing was a formal systematic mental training program. Continue reading

Do you ever feel you are in a fog?

What do you do when you are in a slump?

Do you feel like it will last forever?

One of my friends is currently in a slump and it’s not to do with her sports. It’s to do with her career performance. She’s an entrepreneur, a mom, an athlete and a great person.I had tea with her last week and listened to the despair in her voice and the hopelessness. I could relate to everything she was saying as I’ve been there. She feels like a complete failure and said to me “I’m a head case unable to even think clearly, so stuck”. Sometimes it can be in your head but it still impacts your mental, emotional, physical and technical abilities. Continue reading
