Each week we'll be presenting another part of Joe's revolutionary coaching programme, that helped guide David Palmer and John White to the top of the game.
The Program is applicable to all sports, and represents an invaluable resource for any coaches who have the foresight,
the inspiration, and the commitment to make it work for them.
CREATION OF THE MYTH
By now you should have total realization of all of the preceding seven Coaching lessons. You require knowledge of them before proceeding towards your intended Goal.
We have covered:
1) A Coach and his Role
2) Determining the Psychological Requirements of your Sport
3) Your all important Self Image
4) The Psychological Tests
5) How to access the Brain for accelerated learning in the
Brain Wave Zones
6) Your Affirmations that reinforce our Commitment and
7) Your Goal Setting and how to Achieve your Goals
With all of the access to all of this knowledge, why then do 98% of Elite Athletes fail, and are you one of those 98%.
Alternatively is that figure of 98% incorrect? If it is then you inform us from your knowledge just what the failure rate of Elite Athletes is in your opinion, and support it with Evidence from your State, Country etc. Write down the names of all who were representatives, and where are they now?
WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
The Graph shown here is a Preview of the Coming Attraction, and is definitive and descriptive of what occurs. Take each step carefully, and assess your position now.
Zone 1. You are invited to join the Elite Training Squad in your State, County, Country, etc. You consider that you have made it, and that you will now achieve our full potential. The very first thing that you must learn is that this is all a MYTH. It is not true. Certainly you are given an opportunity to succeed at this point, but there are no guarantees, so realize that it is only a MYTH.
Zone 2 The Refinement Zone. There is a great improvement in your performance at your level. Targets are reset, your program refined, problem areas at this level are eradicated.
Zone 3 The Awareness Zone. The Myth is becoming a Reality. Tempting offers are made to you to go elsewhere. Join another club, Institute, Team, while still Training and improving your Ranking. People are becoming Aware of your potential. Other coaches take over. They are in it for THEIR BENEFIT, not yours.
Zone 4 The Comfort Zone. You accept the offers. The Training declines. You must repay in some way for your rewards. You must Coach the Team, help out somehow at the Club, but the Good Lifestyle and the Money are worth it.
Zone 5 Disillusionment Zone. You now realize that you took the soft option. You did not Pay the Price required to achieve your full potential. You are disillusioned and accept that Change is required, but what can you do now?
Zone 6 Suicide Zone. The Myth that you created is no longer valid. Totally disillusioned, you Suicide your career, and there is only one way out. You either recreate the Myth or you commence a new career.
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Now look around you at the Coaches in your Clubs, National and International, their potential, why they did NOT achieve, and where they are now. All because they the Coaches themselves did not have this knowledge that is yours if your desire it. Where are the former Champions of your Club who wanted to pursue an International career, and failed? It was ignorance of the Requirements of the Sport that did not permit them to achieve. You do not have that excuse as it is all spelt out to you in these Coaching Articles.
Athletes fail for only four reasons.
1. They do not know what to do.
2. They do not know how to do it.
3. They do not have the Resources.
4. They do not want to do it.
