Coaching mental toughness

Posted by Malou at 3/03/2012 09:21:00 PM
My father in law was reminiscing one day about how hard they had it growing up on a farm in Central New York. His grandfather basically ran the farm. He tells the story  as to how much work and how much stress you could handle in one day and if you didn't handle all of it you are weak in his grandfather's eyes. Literally some of the things you had to do as one man would take two or three men to do it these days. It was a mental state  he says. It wasn't that you were going to fail you had no choice but to overcome. Specially in the winter time  he can remember digging with the regular shovel for almost seven hours straight to make a path for the cows to get into the building after a freak blizzard snow storm had hit the area. Hand sawing wood then splitting it for burning in the wood stove to heat the house, bailing hay in the summer and rising at five am in the morning  was just part of his everyday life. Nowadays kids have it so easy. But a lot of that comes from technology making things easier. We got soft, if you want to be the best of the best  you may have to have  someone to teach you in coaching mental toughness. These people have ways to aspire your mental toughness to gain an edge over your opponent. The site we found online for my friend's son that wants to excel better in football seems to take the right approach. Its a step per step procedure to evaluate the needs of the individual and they move on from there.
