Keep a Training Diary to Build Self-Confidence

We spend most of our time working with individuals and teams and we’ve learnt that keeping a training diary is a sure way to build self-confidence.

Our team developed a training diary to assist with improving the quality of training and competitive performances.

The MNC Training Diary is an essential tool for anyone who wants to gain the most they can, both physically and mentally, from their training.

Pressure & Expectations: Is parental pressure always harmful?

Come along to our next parent forum in Singapore delivered by Jay-Lee!  It is a great opportunity to gather with like-minded parents to:

discuss current issues on the topic,
examine what the research is telling us, and
learn strategies for enhancing parent involvement in sport that boosts confidence and reduces anxiety in our athletes.

Here’s what people are saying about our past parent forums:
“The forum on perfectionism was very insightful.  Perfectionism may come across as a good trait but the forum built awareness on how it could be crippling in certain scenarios.  The forum helped me identify certain signs that manifested in a perfectionist.  Dr Jay-Lee also helped in understanding the thought process and phases one would go through.  I am better equipped to […]

Bouncing Back from Injury

The brain plays an important and often overlooked role in pain and injury.  Here are five things you can do to train your brain when you are injured…

1. Visualise
The same parts of your brain are activated when you imagine doing an activity as when you actually do the activity.  Studies show that athletes who use visualisation perform better than those who don’t, when other variables are taken into account.  The key with visualisation is to make the image as real as possible and to practise, practise, practise!  That way you can continue to train even when you can’t get on the field!  Visualising a successful return to sport can also assist with building confidence and managing self-doubt, particularly with […]

Leading from the Front: Leadership tips from the sporting field

In my experience, there are two types of people – those who want to succeed and those who hope to succeed.  Over the years, a lot of athletes have started our work together thinking they don’t need to work on the mental side of their game, hoping that it will happen, only to realise that they have neglected their biggest asset because they have not been able to see the performance potential that is available to them.  So how do you realise that untapped potential in different areas of life?  The key is to be intentional.
The development of leadership skills is one area that is often neglected until crisis is reached.  Everyone has the opportunity to be a leader, in […]

Athletes are People too

To say that the last few weeks in Australian sport have been heartbreaking and tough would be a massive understatement.  Not only has the Gold Coast professional football community been the centre of serious drug allegations but cricket royalty has also come under fire.

When things like this happen, the age-old role model debate comes to the fore.  Should athletes have different expectations given their fame and the privileges that come with it?  Should they live by different rules?  Is this expectation realistic?  Some athletes have come out publicly and said that they believe that they should not be expected to live up to the lofty expectations required of a role model.  And yet, young people will continue to idolise […]

Create Certainty Through Committed Decisions on the Golf Course

The more time I spend on the golf course the more I am fascinated by the decision-making process and the variety of decisions that golfers have to make.  Players have to assess a hole in terms of distance, lie, and obstacles.  They have to then work out what club to use out of their bag, determine how the conditions will influence the shot, and narrow down the possible options before deciding on what shot to take…

Then you add pressure to the mix and even the best struggle, either with overthinking (e.g., usually too many technical thoughts or focusing on the outcome potentially leading to the ‘yips’) or suffering from a ‘mind blank’ or panic, leading to a rushed shot.  In […]
