"Get out of your head!"



"YOU'RE IN YOUR HEAD!!"

"GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD!!"

Do you think this advice helps athletes?

I'm a 2x Olympian and Mental Toughness Coach and here's what athletes tell me:

  • I don't know what it means.

  • Coach is mad but I don't know how to get out.

  • Dad/Mom are mad but I don't know how to get out.

When athletes are "in their head" they are thinking/worrying about their problems, their mistakes.

These thoughts are going around and around in their head.

To "get out of their head", help them shift their thoughts to actions:

  • Solve their problems: What action(s) do they need to take?

  • Fix their mistakes: What action(s) do they need to take?

Athletes want to get out of their head. It feels crappy in there.

Give them tools to help them get out.


How about a Mental Toughness Toolkit?



CHANGE DOESN'T TAKE TIME. IT TAKES COURAGEOUS ACTION.
