Step Into Your Purpose and Change Lives with The Mindset Coach AcademyFeb 01, 2022
Wouldn’t it be nice if, way back in little league, our coach sat us down and taught us about visualization? Way before the social pressure or college applications, before we ever really “needed” it?
The truth is, I don't know if I've ever met anyone who had that experience. Many of us come to mental training the hard way.
We get stuck in a slump that we can’t seem to pull ourselves out of, we get the yips at the exact wrong time (one too many times), we get so burnt out we just want to walk away from the game and never look back.
When we hit rock bottom, that’s when most of us realize that we’ve reached our limit. That no amount of extra reps will get us to where we need to go. That if we want a different result we have to do something… well, different.
At least that’s how it happened for me. I was 16, ready to quit, then I met my coach; my mindset coach, and everything changed. I went on to play professionally and frankly achieve everything I wanted to do in my sport.
I often think about what would have happened if I had walked away. Like I was about to do, like so many talented athletes do. Where would I be today? Who would I be today?
Mental training changed my life, and not just in sports; in basketball and everything that came after. And if mental training changed your life too, you know firsthand that the mental game matters.
That’s why I created The Mindset Coach Academy.
I created The MCA to equip people who are passionate about mindset coaching with the tools they need to start a business doing exactly that: Mindset coaching. To help people like you bring mindset coaching into the world so that you can teach others the mental skills we all need to achieve our biggest goals, in and out of sports.
That’s what The Mindset Coach Academy is all about.
What is The Mindset Coach Academy?
In short, The Mindset Coach Academy is the exact course I wish I had when I was just starting out my mindset coaching business.
The MCA is a 4-month, small-group dual certification program for aspiring mindset coaches. It’s designed to teach you mental training skills and teach you how to build a mindset coaching business from the ground up so that you can help people, live out your calling, and make money.
From how to create custom guided visualizations, to how to get your first client, and a whole lot in between, you’ll learn how to:
- Practice mental training
- Coach mental training
- And make money from mental training
If you've dreamed of becoming a mindset coach, or are already impacting lives with mindset coaching and want to increase your impact and reach, this certification is for you.
When you graduate The Mindset Coach Academy as a Certified Mindset Coach, you will also graduate the program as a Performance Visualization Specialist.
What is a Performance Visualization Specialist?
We devote an entire month of The Mindset Coach Academy to honing your visualization skills and teaching this skill to others. With proper completion of the coursework, you will earn the title of Performance Visualization Specialist.
Visualization is the single best tool for training your subconscious brain to become aligned with what you really want. Doing a visualization (or a ‘mental rehearsal’) is a powerful way to practice a sport, activity, or situation without physically doing it because it allows you to ‘experience’ it before it happens. This strengthens neural pathways and builds your subconscious belief that what you want is attainable (and not all that scary).
As a Performance Visualization Specialist, you’ll know how to create custom guided visualizations for athletes, teams, clients, and people in your life that you care about. You’ll be able to help an athlete get to the next level, help your friend get better sleep, help your sibling heal from a breakup, and teach your children tools to manage pressure. You’ll even be able to turn it back on yourself to foster personal growth and change.
I am so excited to equip you with this skill because I know how powerful this tool is. I’ll give you the script, you’ll practice, you’ll design and record your own visualizations, and you’ll leave with a stamp of credibility and super powerful skill in your toolbox.
How is the Mindset Coach Academy Structured?
This course is 4 months long and each month has a theme:
Month 1: Coach Yourself - If you want to make massive change with clients, you have to work on your own mindset first. We start by putting you in the student’s chair.
Month 2: Become a Performance Visualization Specialist - You'll learn mental training methods and processes with a special emphasis on guided visualization and earn your Performance Visualization Specialist certification.
Month 3 - Applied Practice - Take our methods into the world, create your own techniques, and start working with REAL clients and making real change.
Month 4: Take Your Gift to the World - Learn how to package and price your services and create opportunities around you as you become a Positive Performance Certified Mindset Coach.
Throughout all 16 weeks of the course, you’ll meet twice a week. Once with the full class for a 1 hr weekly mastermind-style lecture with Lindsey. And once with your breakout group, led by your Team Captain. It's about 2 hours of class a week plus homework. But it's purposely designed to not be a bunch of 'busy work' but rather the absolute foundational pieces that will move your business forward.
In addition to these zoom calls, we will be staying connected, posting discussion questions, and sharing in each other’s journey via our exclusive online community.
Who is The Mindset Coach Academy For?
The Mindset Coach Academy is for anyone who wants to grow as a mindset coach, or wants to either expand or start a business or side hustle in the mental training field.
The MCA curriculum is geared toward athlete-minded individuals and people in the sports world. Although we have had students apply the MCA to other arenas, this certification program is ideal for:
- Coaches, former coaches, and athletes - You want to create a business as a mindset coach and strengthen your own mindset practice.
- Skills trainers and fitness trainers - You want to add mindset coaching to increase your impact and income, while separating you from your competition.
- Current mindset coaches, therapists, or other professionals - You want to use mindset coaching in your business to help athletes and other high-performers
How To Know If The MCA Is Right For You.
This program is a 4-month commitment and you get out of it what you put into it. I’ll be honest, it’s not for everyone. You have to really want it and be prepared to do the work. Above all, you have to have an athlete mindset.
I want you to be successful and I fully believe you can with my program, but you have to want it the most.
Here are 4 questions to ask yourself to help you decide if The MCA is right for you:
- Are You Passionate About Mental Training? First and foremost, you have to be passionate about mental training. You have to know firsthand that it works and eager to share it with others. You don’t have to be perfect, but you do have to be willing to do the work to set an example for your athletes.
- Do You Have An Existing Network or Community? Do you have some connections in the community you hope to work in? This is something you can build while going through this course, but it will only benefit you to have an existing community from the jump.
- Is There Financial Opportunity There? Do your connections have money and do they put their money and their time into investing in personal or professional improvement?
- Do You Know Your End-Goal? I.e. What’s your motivation? It’s not uncommon for a student to start the course just wanting self-education and end it wanting to start a business. It’s okay if your goal changes, but you have to have a “Why” and it has to be enough of a “Why” to do the work and really put your heart into it.
