In the highly competitive environment which is professional football, there are some actions that will help you get noticed and there are some actions that will leave you on the bench.
That’s pretty easy to understand right, but there is a bitter pill that’s harder to swallow.
Sometimes things will happen out of your control that you don’t agree with, that don’t seem fair, that make you realise you fucked up and even seem unbelievable.
And when I say unbelievable, I heard one story from a former player, that blew my mind it was so wrong!
It made me realise that there are people in football that corrupt the game so they can thrive.
The players are pawns in a game of chess and at times can feel they have no control in what happens to them and the love for the game they once loved, is slowly withdrawn as they fall into a negative spin of deceit and uncertainty.
Then what happens?
The player gets moved around, lied to and left out.
Their mental health begins to suffer because as much as they try to find the answers, they can’t.
A player struggling with negative mental health is more likely to be left on the sidelines as they are considered a liability!
To me, that attitude is Bullshit!
When a player is suffering from negative mental health, the player needs to be find solutions fast with the support of someone neutral with only the player’s best interest at heart.
Did you know that a person can often overcome mental health quickly when a new perspective is given and accepted?
Did you know the performance of a player can quickly improve when a new perspective is given and accepted?
Did you know a player can thrive and even improve performance and therefore increase their value when they are given a new perspective and accepted?
Of course you didn’t because this simple way of helping players isn’t well known or accepted.
I really don’t care if you are a superstar or an unknown.
To me, you are a person first and people that struggle need help.
They need a new perspective to consider.
I believe we all have the capability to change perspectives.
I believe all people have the solutions inside their minds, if only they know how to access them.
Some players can figure it out by themselves.
But some can’t and it’s those that I am targeting with this post.
I’m an expert at offering new perspectives so a person can begin to thrive and leave negative mental health behind and begin to perform better on and off the pitch.
Do you know a player that needs a new perspective?
