The benefit of coaching in sport and private or business life

Coaching in sport and private or business life can have many benefits. Not only can it improve your performance in sport or your efficiency at work. It can also let you enjoy live more and give you closer relations with friends and family.

I am a big fan of Formula 1 and this week the 2019 season started. Within minutes you could clearly see the benefit of a mental coach by the performance of one of the driver.

Last year Lewis Hamilton won, but he did not owe it entirely to himself. In Formula 1, there are always two drivers in the same team. The second driver was Valtteri Bottas, and a smart strategy sacrificed his potential victories for the Hamilton World Championship. Maybe not fair, but this strategy is allowed in Formula 1.

The effect was that you saw a more and more frustrated Bottas climb out of his car race after race. He was getting well paid for it, but for sure it wasn't pleasant for him.

At the end of the 2018 season, you saw a broken Bottas. He knew that he could easily compete with his teammate, but simply was not allowed the be the first to cross the finish line. His talent had to be suppressed, and his ego was not important. The question was therefore whether he would appear again this year.

Claiming victory due to coaching

During the start of this season, Hamilton started at pole position and Bottas as the second. Immediately in the first corner, Bottas caught up with his teammate, and it stayed that way for the rest of the race.

With more than a kilometer ahead of his teammate, Bottas claimed the victory. A remarkable turn of the race that nobody had seen before. He could beat his team-mate last year, but winning the race with one kilometer ahead of Hamilton had never been shown before.

Mental health by coaching influences your performance

Once out of the car, the world saw another Bottas. Of course, he was filled with joy, but there was more to it. He looked different from his eyes; his mouth opened a fraction more when speaking, and it seemed as if he had grown an inch.

During the interview, he confessed what was different. He had received intensive mental coaching from a sports coach. A mental coach with a specialization in sports that influenced his performance. For Bottas, this has made the difference that made the difference.

Just grab that one-quarter of a second ahead here and brake just half a second later in that other corner. How is it possible that a mental coach can do that for someone?

It is not about how good you are now, it's about how good you want to be.

How does coaching work?

A coach is a conversation partner who understands how the human brain works and how your thoughts and emotions affect your body. In essence, coaches free you from your obstructing thoughts and beliefs. It is not about how good you are now, it's about how good you want to be.

Imagine that you believe that you can never become a champion because the rest is much better. If you genuinely believe this, it will radiate to your body. Have you ever seen a winner's gaze in someone's eyes who believed he would fail? A coach will not convince you that you are going to win, but will show you the reality that it is not a fact that you are going to lose.

Are coaches effective or fluffy?

An unjustified perception is that coaches are fluffy and not effective. If you have good friends to talk to, isn't that enough? And otherwise you hit your fists against the wall once, and your frustration is gone. If that is true, then 90% of the top football players and other top athletes would all have no friends or no fists.

The difference between a coach and a good friend is that a coach masters the technique to allow you to come to new insights quickly. While a good friend has a listening ear and certainly might come with good advice, a coach will deliberately figure out the problem behind the problem. Because of this, you do not work on the effects of the problem, but you solve the real issue.

Various coaches are online at CallTheONE to give you new insights. They will not make you a Bottas within a day, but most of the time, you feel a different and liberated person within 1 or 2 sessions.
