Motivation is an inner force that causes a person to have the desire and willingness to act, and it is a crucial element that helps a person move closer toward their goals. There are various levels of motivation that influence how athletes behave in different circumstances and understanding these factors can strengthen these motivational states. We can work together to learn new strategies for self-motivation that include goal setting and self-evaluative reactions. Research has shown that these types of techniques result in higher levels of perceived competency, productiveness, and intrinsic drive. By strengthening changes in attitude and daily habits, you can learn to boost your self-motivation levels and impact your performance.
By using imagery, athletes can strengthen their mental and physical skills to help them reach the next level. Imagery can be used to either intensify arousal and get “psyched up” for competition, or reduce stress when an athlete feels anxious. Depending on which type of emotion you are experiencing, we can work together to learn new techniques and utilize visualization strategies and mental rehearsal to help you to be mentally prepared.
Research has shown that most athletes experience staleness and burnout at some point in their athletic careers. This can result in cognitive stress, as well as tension, disappointment, irritability, and fatigue. If you are experiencing signs of burnout, we can work together to examine these causes and find solutions to help you to overcome these barriers and move forward with a renewed appreciation and passion for your sport.
