The Difficulties of Staying Motivated

I often receive emails from parents, players and coaches wondering why consistent performance is so difficult. The emotions that go along with those emails are fear, frustration, disappointment and anger. It is natural to feel this way when we do not get what we want. If it is your child not playing to his potential, your team underachieving or you simply struggling to feel successful, they are all the same, we did not get what we expected to get.

Having the ability to be consistent and exceptional day in and day out is challenging to say the least. We all have many excuses as to why. Whether it is a bad day at work, at the rink or at home. Someone is always the cause. Our willingness to put our negativity on others is the easiest way to deal with disappointment.Finding something inside of ourselves to solve the problem is the problem. We do not know the answers. We do not know why. Most importantly, until we can develop a process to learn why we do these things, the emotions listed above will simply continue. The cycle goes on and on.

The definition of insanity "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." This is exactly how we feel, WHY CAN'T THEY SEE IT, WHY CAN'T THEY DO IT, WHY CAN'T I DO IT?There are some simple practices that you can start to implement that will change everything, YES there is HOPE!
