Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge

Point of the Game: Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge | Sports exercise psychologist | Scoop.it
Sports Ethics: Keep Your Edge. “I lost my edge.” Athletes and professionals mutter this when they struggle with their skills and when they begin to feel their skills eroding or when they feel competitors starting to surpass them.

Loved this article!

Michael Walsh's curator insight, October 19, 2014 9:46 AM

Great look at athletes struggling with the fact that they cant always be the best and how coaches have got them through those struggles.

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:47 AM

If someone feels like they're losing their ethical edge, it then comes time to metaphorically step back and reevaluate.

Sports Coach :: Maintaining motivation throughout the season | Sports exercise psychologist | Scoop.it

It can be challenging for coaches and athletes alike to stay motivated over a long season. It can be even more challenging to maintain motivation after the major event you have been working towards, like nationals or your local club championship, has been and gone.

With all the negative news in the world, it is always great to see that some people really take advantage of their station in life to set an example for our younger generations to follow.

 

Norm Densley's curator insight, November 12, 2014 8:21 PM

It's good to read about an athlete who is a good example to others.

It clearly is not just the competitors of sport which could benefit from a sport psychologist!  A drop out rate or 50% in newly qualified offcials is a waste of young ability

Can You Talk Yourself Out of Exhaustion?

Can You Talk Yourself Out of Exhaustion? | Sports exercise psychologist | Scoop.it
You know the moment. The one when fatigue threatens to slow you, when that little voice says maybe you should back off just a little, that you can't keep working this hard.
To push through it, all you may need to do is tell yourself to hold on.
