Sport, just like life, is tough. It is full of problems, frustrations and disappointments. But sport also offers a wonderful opportunity to build resilience and learn to deal with difficulties and come out tougher, better, and smarter than you were before. When you understand that problems are part of sport, you learn not to fear them but solve them. You learn to step up and tackle those problems rather than avoid them or become discouraged. You learn that you are much stronger than you think, especially when you are equipped with an effective Mental Toughness toolkit.

The goal is to successfully deal with the difficulties that sport and life present and learn to embrace risk and discomfort because you have the tools to handle both. You can learn to rise above frustration and disappointment and see that mistakes and setbacks are temporary – simply a problem to be solved. When you understand that mistakes are part of sport and all problems have a solution, you learn to become the super-hero in your own life, step up and save yourself. When you are prepared to save yourself, it does not guarantee a gold medal, but it does build self-esteem, character, grit and resilience. I am convinced these are gold medal attributes on the Podium of Life.

Parents, are you frustrated by your child’s inability to handle setbacks and disappointment? Do you wish they were tougher and more resilient? Do you want them to step up in sport and in life? Are you looking for ideas to help them reach their potential? Coaches, are you looking for new ideas to inspire and get the best out of your athletes? Do you want them to be mentally tougher and take more risks? Do you want them to be more coachable? It is obvious there is something more to sport than having the right physical skills.
