In the sports world, everyone is grasping with wanting to improve and get better and they look for many ways to do it, but until one starts looking at principles, you’ll never get to the true heart of how things really work and thus how to get true improvement.
Principles are simply a guideline of how things work, and move away from the principles and you just make things harder and harder for yourself, no matter your good intentions.
For example, the principle of becoming rich is, if you spend less money than you earn, you will become rich, if you spend more than you earn, you won’t and it’s a simple principle and holds true for anything.
The interesting thing is, when it comes to coaching, if you begin looking around the internet you will find very little information on sports coaching principles.
When you look at our reality, it’s a thought reality, and he who controls the thought, controls the reality, and why do you think there is so much effort put into propaganda and marketing? It’s all about controlling the thought processes, and if you understand that principle, you will understand a lot of what is going on in this world and the words that are used.
So if you want to truly get into improving your sports coaching, you have to begin understanding the brain, for that is the hub of everything, especially in understanding that the brain wants to learn.
You have to begin understanding words, for the words control the thoughts and thought patterns
And you have to understand actions, for they allow you do to things on this physical realm and this is where understanding the cores and the keys come in.
So three sports coaching principles become:
The brain wants to learn and learns best through Visual Imagery and Pictures
We live in a thought reality, and he who controls the thoughts, controls the reality
The actions one takes will determine the results one gets
Once you understand the principles, then it becomes a case of knowing the information to make those principles really work.
Once one understands principles, life becomes so much easier and once you understand and begin to apply sports coaching principles, the performance can only rise
