Making change when things aren’t working out sounds simple right?
But when you find yourself in a dark place or a place of confusion and doubt, making change should be the first thing you do.
Yet many people struggle to make that change, even when the situation demands it to happen.
This exact moment is where mental health issues are born.
They are born then reside in this place of uncertainty, and begin to grow when procrastination and an inability to make a new choice, fail to materialise.
People think they can handle it or think things will work themselves out yet this is often not the case.
I’m sure you can think of one case where a professional football player struggled to make change when things weren’t working outa and things didn’t go well for them?
Trying to deal with counter-productive situations, when you don’t have the right perspective and mental tools, lead to a change in behaviour and an inability to see what needs to be done, as the darkness envelopes and clouds the mind, leaving that person confused, unsure and a sense of lost self-worth and drive.
Let’s put this into context with professional football players.
Uncertainty, confusion and a loss of drive and self-worth will lead to their careers being cut short. Then what?
REAL FOOTBALLER PROBLEMS
Over the last few months, I’ve connected with and spoken in depth with former professional players that all had a story to tell me, and one player in particular hadn’t shared his story with anyone else and his situation happened five years ago.
If only at the time of his decision did he have someone to help him and think clearly, his playing career would have turned out a lot more fruitful.
His story is just one of many hundreds that are the reality for many former players and it’s this pain and frustration that, to me, doesn’t need to happen which is why I’m asking current professional players to talk to me so they don’t have a horrific story to tell in a few years.
My speciality is helping people see their situation from a new perspective, overcome procrastination quickly and make new choices that create opportunity.
