)-- Marlon Familton who runs Collaborative Couples & Family Counseling, LLC and Dynamic Sports Training, announce the launch of a new web page on the CCFC site, dedicated to Mental Skills Training for competitive and recreational athletes, located at http://www.securelove.net/mental_skills_training.htm.
Competitive and recreational athletes are individuals who work and train hard in their sport. However, most athletes focus their attention on the equipment and training aspect. Mental Skills work that includes an intentional attitude, self-talk, imagery, and learning tools to manage anxiety, are usually not considered part of an athlete's training plan.
"Ironically the best of the best pay attention to mental skills training." Familton says. "If you want to reach your potential, if you want to reach new levels of success, mental skills training has huge potential to contribute."
"One does not have to be on a professional team or an have competed in the Olympics to be a successful athlete." Familton says. "Being a successful athlete is more about recognizing that your sport is important to you and you are committed to performing your best. Reaching that best should include using all the tools at your disposal. Managing your thoughts and attitude are some of those tools that most athletes don't bother with, to their detriment. Adding and improving those tools are what I help add to an athlete's skill set."
