8 Ways Becoming a Mindset Coach Will Transform Your Team

2 Reasons You're Not Practicing Mental Training with Your Team

If you are here, you are probably either already practicing mental training with your team OR you fall into one of the two categories: 

  1. You don't believe that mental training is the fastest and easiest route to higher performance.
  2. You don't know how to train the mind. Maybe you've done some training in the past, but you've never had a proven system to teach mental training.

If you have a healthy appreciation of mental training, you may have even tossed around the idea of bringing Positive Performance (or another mental training expert) to your campus to work with your team.  

While bringing another coach in to train your athletes has its obvious benefits,  I want to propose another option, one that you may not have thought about before: Why don’t YOU become the mindset coach for your team? 

Before diving into these benefits, I want to first address the coaches here who...

What Are You So Afraid Of? Fear, Procrastination, and the 'Bad Timing' Myth

I went skydiving one time. It wasn’t my idea. I was interning after college back in Ames, Iowa and when my internship ended, my boss said he had a surprise for us. He drove us out to a small airport one Tuesday afternoon,  plopped down $700 on the counter, and said... 

“I’m going skydiving today, yours is paid for if you want to do it too.”

I had never wanted to skydive but I knew in that moment if I didn’t take action, I NEVER would. I would let fear paralyze me and it would never happen. I also knew that THIS opportunity wouldn’t necessarily come again. Sure, there are a million skydiving outfits all over the world, but opportunities don’t just materialize over and over again. They are there, and then they are gone.

I’m glad I did it. It was exhilarating, terrifying, and something I will always remember. I know if I had thought too hard about it, if I’d told myself, ‘I’m only 25,...

Trisha Kroll: How a 'Floundering Mindset Coach' Gained the System she Needed to Level-up Her Business

 

Coach Trisha Kroll describes her past self as a 'floundering mindset coach'. As a Division I volleyball athlete and the owner of The Diff (club volleyball) she knew firsthand how important mental training is, but she didn't know how to go about teaching it. Bouncing from book to book to blog, Trisha educated herself on the mental game and scrapped together what she could to help her athletes, but she knew it wasn't enough. 

When she applied to be in the Mindset Coach Academy, she came to us seeking support to help her be proactive about reaching the big goals she has for her company. In her words,

I've been reactive and not proactive about building a system... You don't rise to the level  of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems. 

Through the Mindset Coach Academy, Trisha has felt confirmed in the value of mindset coaching, and re-energized through the process of starting with her own mindset. She has doubled her prices, will soon triple them and...

Why Successful People Pay for Mentorship

 

It’s easy to assume that because you HAVE support in your life that it’s the RIGHT support. Most of the time, I'd venture to say the support we have on an everyday basis is enough for doing what we are doing NOW. But if we are trying to get to another level, trying to break through to something bigger and bolder, the support structure around us is like the scaffolding needed to build a higher building. It has to rise for us to build higher.

Because here is the thing: There is the ‘I love you, I believe in you and your big goals’ type of support. And there is the “You can push yourself way more and I’ll support you every step of the way.” And it’s really hard for people to serve both types of support consistently. Yes, my husband can kick my butt at times (and definitely does) but EVERY time we sit down for a glass of wine, do I REALLY want him in that role? Does he want to be in that role all the time? Of course not.
