The Mental Part of the Game
It is generally agreed that the mental part of any sporting activity is a very important part of the game. [ Good thinking skills help at any level of sports from just beginning to the professional level. However, at the collegiate level and especially at the professional level it is even more important because often the physical abilities between athletes are very minor and it is the way the athletes think and use good judgment that will make the biggest differences. In fact, the better your mental skills are, the better your physical skills. How you think at a very basic level can have a profound effect on maximizing your physical skills.
Up to now coaches could only guess at how to improve these basic mental skills, but the American Institute of Learning and Cognitive Development has discovered an approach to improving thinking skills that had been developed in Australia. We have been trained in this approach and have brought it to the United States. We originally brought it here to improve academic and business skills, but we have found it has great application in sports. The developer of the approach told us it had applications in sports, but we had not thought much about it until one of the partners within AILCD, after improving some of his thinking skills, cut twelve strokes off his golf game while actually playing less golf. This woke us up to the opportunities in sports that this approach had. Up to this date we have only worked with amateur athletes. They all have stated that this approach has improved their games. We have worked with a former professional baseball player who played in the major leagues for fifteen years. We worked with him to help him reach greater goals and to be more efficient in his business. It helped him there tremendously and he has stated that he wished he had this training when he was playing baseball as he felt it would have helped him be even better in his playing days. ] Auto answered|Score .7211|jher000|Points 5626|Note:
