Mindset Training Part 3- How can Mindset Training benefit parents?
Parents play an instrumental role in the development of a mindset that will allow for optimal experience, development, and success for their athlete. Understanding the best methods for encouraging and supporting an athlete can be stressful and confusing for many parents. Mindset Training can give parents the education and resources necessary to give their athlete the best chance of achieving optimal experience, development, and success.
Parents that understand and support the proper Mindset will have athletes that:
Play with passion. More passion leads to greater enjoyment. Greater enjoyment leads to the desire to work hard. The desire to work hard leads to optimal experience, development, and success.
Have supreme confidence in their abilities. An athlete that is driven by personal development and growth will always compete with confidence. They realize that their development and success are based on controllable factors like great effort and focusing on the process. An athlete that carries the right mindset, and competes with confidence, will have the greatest chance of ongoing development and success.
Have a present-minded focus. Athletes with the proper mindset are able to put aside potential distractions, allowing them to compete to the best of their abilities.
Possess the ability to overcome failure. At some point every athlete faces failure. How the athlete responds to failure can be a key to ongoing development and success.
Play with a team first attitude. Athletes that possess the right mindset understand that placing the team first will allow for the best chance of personal and team development, and in turn the best chance of overall success.
