The real secret to successful athletes

October 2, 2009


We salivate at how our sports stars are so physically gifted. They really are gifted. But one thing we do not notice is the importance that psychology brings into athletics.  But if you think about it you will see it makes sense.Because sports is not just about the phsyical ability.When we are talking about competition the mind is always involved.That would be why most of these athletes that we idolize are not just physically gifted.But when you actually get to talk with them you will notice that they are also mentally gifted.

Now what I would like to share from my experience as a San Diego sports psychology is that you can become great in that aspect as well.  One thing you might not have control over your physical skills.But yo can control how tough you are mentally. Sometimes that allows someone who isn’t as talented physically beat out someone who is.We witness it a lot of times.And the thing that makes the inferior ones to succeed is their mental strength.

So hiring a success coach is what most athletes do nowadays. Most of these success coaches are also therapists.  Just like me, I run a family counselor San Diego business and part of that includes helping athletes.  It makes sense that a therapist who is skilled with dealing with mind problems help in this area.

It is not uncommon for an athlete who is struggling come to me with depression issues.Their failures is probably what caused their depression in a lot of cases.  So as a depression counseling it has allowed me to implement sports psychology to overcome their depression.All it takes is that one for most of the cases. Because their failings caused the depression they are having.Remove the failures and you also remove their depression.

So hopefully you see the secret to success isn’t always physical. No, the secret to success is a lot of times within the mind. And by improving their mental tougness athletes experience more success.
