I was asked to talk to a group of young elite cyclists about mental skills training. I asked two questions. “How many of you would like to win an Olympic Gold?”. Everyone raised their hands. “How many of you believe you can win an Olympic Gold?” Just one in the group raised their hand. I was blown-away. How could this be? How could any of these youngsters hope to win an Olympic Gold if they did not believe they could?
Hi there. I love the outdoors. I love kungfu, trail running and adventure sports - and truth be told I am rather competitive (and hence my interest in the psychology of performance). I hold a personal belief that drives me to want to leave the world a better place each day. I feel that most when I am engaging with people on a personal level and I feel deep satisfaction when I see people achieve their goals and dreams.
