Over the years I have had the opportunity to train many players and one that I can tell you without notice is the best player who was spiritually strong. It's a hard concept to explain until you see it, but it's obvious when you see a player who has it.
To clarify my point, not all of the best athletes have it. No, every major league player is mentally strong and it's enough that never makes up large divisions with high mental viscosity. It's not about fitness, I've trained many great athletes who had no idea of being spiritually strong and would undergo pressure. They could do well when there was nothing in the line, but when the game was in balance, or competition was strong, they usually failed.
However, I have seen many players with average talent, but spiritually strong, performing in such a way that nobody thought they could perform it. A clutch hit, key bunt, great defense game that stopped the visit, spiritually strong players get a job. Indeed, the higher the pressure, the better they perform.
One thing I have learned from experience is that mental difficulties are not native DNA symptoms, but one developed over time and exposure to side effects. Preparing for spiritual difficulties begins with experience at a young age. Parents can play a key role in initiating the process of training mental difficulties, but they need help along the way. Of course, a high-quality education system with good standards in the classroom, along with strong, but reasonable coaches (or mentors in other projects) with a positive mindset, it is necessary to develop a child mentally, though not an athlete.
This is one of the many reasons that it is important for all children to participate in the balance of organizational staff at a young age: Karate, gymnastics, ballet, music, scouts, children and youth work in the church, or youth participation will participate in begin to instigate discipline and structure needed to develop spiritually. Notice that I said to start participating. It takes time and preparation.
Developing mental difficulty (and leadership) is also the reason athletes need to participate in proper training at the time they are 14 or 15 years old. A training plan not only helps build power, strength and agility, but it is important to develop spiritual education. Players should be responsible for the mentor (coach, coach, etc.). As well as companionship and pressure of a small group, even if there is only one or two others.
If a player participates in a training plan until 14 or 15, it should be for agility and speed training, as well as teaching the right technique in weightlessness. Before training, please contact your child's physician during annual physical treatment, as each child's development is unique.
Definition of Mental Problems
Mental health has a psychological edge that enables them to perform maximum work and efficiency in the requirements they apply to training, exercise or competition. Specifically, when the demands are greatest or conditions are harmful.
When claims are greatest, when the symptoms of psychologists are obvious.
Some of the features that are obvious when the player is mentally tricky are:
Please note this does not mean that output is always working. In many cases, these features can show most of the loss, especially close loss of strong opponents or under adverse conditions. But over time, and with precise training, the mental difficulties of talented players are evident in championship titles.
Spiritual Difficulty Development
To become spiritually strong, exercise must be exercised that leads to spiritual resilience. I wish there was a formula to follow, but it is not. It takes time and patience under the right leadership to develop mental difficulties. Parents, teachers, coaches and other mentors must participate in the training process.
It also takes failure and ability to jump back. Many people develop mental difficulties with experience of failure. Good parents do not want their children to fail and I understand. But today, too many blame others for the failure. Parents are quick to teach the teacher about problems in the class or coach when the child is not outstanding in activities. Mental viscosity can not be developed properly when it teaches others. Indeed, the opposite is the case.
Here are some examples:
"Every strikeout made me almost home to me." Babe Ruth
Babe Ruth grew up in an orphanage home. As he played, he goes out 1330 times to recruit 714 career groups.
" Failure makes me hard to try next." Michael Jordan
Jordan was only 5 "when he came to high school. Because of his speed and sport (and older brother named Larry, the coaches knew well) were invited to try the defense game but he did not He was placed on the JV team where he scored 25-30 points in the game, not only the ability to play, but the drive and the determination to succeed, but demanding the same from his team. His older brother Larry had a lot
Bill Gates and Steve Allen (Microsoft's colleague) failed in his first trade, Traf-O-Matic, which was developed to analyze traffic patterns  ] Walt Disney's first telecommunications company in 1920 failed to leave just one month, he was forced to take work from another company at the time. Coaches, you can train your players to become spiritually strong but it takes time, perseverance and work. But the results are worth it.
