“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”Bruce Lee
The Way Of Jeet Kune Do
Jeet Kune Do was created by Bruce Lee, taking the most useful parts of other martial arts, removing the useless bits and adding some of his personality but he says he didn’t invent a new style, he create a new philosophy.
The practitioners of this martial art believe in minimal effort with maximum impact with extreme speed and eliminating wasteful movement.
In other words, removing the bullshit and using just the useful parts of other martial arts for quick results.
This method divided the people.
The purists were beside themselves. They believed no-one should take one martial art and mix it with another. It was unpure!
People with inquisitive and open minds to learning, embraced the philosophy.
Creating The NEAT Programme
I mould my philosophy based on the same principles of Jeet Kune Do.
The skills I’ve learned through training in NLP, Emotional Intelligence, CBT and Mindfulness all have value but I realised which parts I needed to use in specific situations, depending on my client’s strengths and weaknesses and put aside the useless ones in that moment.
I added my own flavour based on my experiences and personality and create the NEAT Programme.
How Can Professional Football Players Benefit From This Programme?
I understand the career of a football player is limited and I’m also aware that issues and problems can occur and impact on the mental health and performance of players who struggle to deal with certain situations.
A player is a person first and a player second and when the person is struggling off the pitch, the player struggles with performance on the pitch.
When a player is struggling, their career is in jeopardy, meaning their livelihood is on the line and when they lose that, their life can take a turn for the worse.
The NEAT Programme can help them overcome a problem quickly and learn how to eliminate wasteful movement (communication and behaviour) and instil useful communication and behaviours.
How Can You Access The Programme?
Before you consider applying, I need to know which side of the fence you sit on.
If you’re more a traditionalist then perhaps this isn’t for you.
If you have a closed mind to learning, then perhaps this isn’t for you
If you are rigid in your values and beliefs then perhaps this isn’t for you
If you like theories but rarely put them into action, perhaps this isn’t for you.
But if you want results fast with ongoing support and learn how to leverage communication and behaviours, then I invite you to apply.
