When I was 10 years old, I sat with my father, mesmerized in watching the Olympic Games in Mexico City. My father, who had been the welterweight amateur boxing champion of Mexico for two years taught me this – “You must become an Olympian in your mind and your heart FIRST, then develop the skills and practice, before you can walk into the Olympic stadium.” Ever since that moment, the Olympic spirit burned inside me like a torch and fueled my direction as an athlete, a scholar and a coach. This Olympic spirit is at the foundation of the type of coaching I provide.
Are you ready to conquer the challenges you have been having in the areas of leadership, communication or health? Are you ready to thrive and perform like the champion you were meant to be?
To create a breakthrough in performance will require three critical steps. First, you need a shift in mindset, attitude, thinking or consciousness. Einstein said “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” So, you must begin from within, and think an entirely new way while taking responsibility for having created your own problems, subconsciously. Second, you need to have a corresponding shift in actions and behavior. One without the other never works. Shifting mindset without changing behavior is only wishful thinking. Change behavior without the necessary shift in mindset and you are just putting icing over mud, destined to return to the way it was. The first two steps, most intelligent bright people like us can figure out. Yet it is the third step that evades most of us. Third, you need to create a new structure of accountability and support in order to sustain the shifts in mindset and behavior. Without this new structure, ideas and actions never become habits – they merely wither into oblivion. It is only with new practices, guidance, discipline, support and accountability that we can create a thriving new state of performance.
