Over the next weeks and months, the content on this mindset coaching blog will follow a number of interviews aimed at deconstructing or unlocking the mindset behind individual performance in sport, business, and life. I’ll also showcase other prerequisites of ‘good’ performance—i.e. other building blocks that need to be in place for a good performance to happen.
In the first series of interviews, we’ll see how a supportive or focused ‘mindset’ underpins the daily or specific performance of the personalities interviewed. You’ll get a keen insight into the techniques, mantras, processes, and scientific and unscientific quirks of many of the interviewees with a view to improving your own performance in sport, business and life!
In many cases, the techniques that underpin preparation for a performance are transferable to your everyday life. They can be learnt, copied and improved upon to suit your personal circumstances on your journey towards becoming a better performer or person.
My aim is to disseminate these techniques as widely as possible to allow you to quickly benefit from the experiences of others in adopting the right mindset to overcome adversity.
The series on ‘Coaching Mindset – The Malta Connection‘ – focuses on individuals with a connection to Malta and to excellence in sport.
This is a great question: Why Malta and why sports? First of all, local athletes tend to have the physical ability to compete at the highest levels in and out of Malta. But they may appear to lack the mindset required to push further into sporting careers at the highest levels.
Second, I’m a national of the beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta, and I’m an example of the above constraint; manifested by an unfulfilled brief career as an international rugby player. This happened for many reasons, including lack of a suitable early mindset!
To enable you to have as authentic an experience as possible, most of the content that follows comes verbatim from the interviewees. It charts their ups and downs in sport and in life; the mental and physical markers relied upon to get the most out of a particular performance, and aspects of mindset, headspace, training ability and physical energy.
Then, we’ll expand to include different disciplines in sport and business – two key areas of interest for this blog. Subsequent series will see the geographic scope extended to sporting and business personalities worldwide.
