MOMENTUM

BRAINBOOSTER PODCAST EP19 : JOE SILLETT – BOUNCING BACK IN BUSINESS   How important is mental resilience? How much do we need that skill in our world of deep unpredictability? We all face challenges in our work, in our family life, in our sport and it has always been my aim on this podcast to share with you inspirational stories from people who have the qualities to deal with the ‘turbulence’ of life. Joe Sillett is one such person. From a chance remark and a twist of fate, Joe built up the cricket equipment firm Woodworm from nothing into a multi million pound operation in a few short years. This culminated in securing some of the game’s greatest names such as Freddie Flintoff and Kevin…

BRAINBOOSTER PODCAST EP18 : TOM HEATON – GETTING TO THE TOP

He is wonderfully driven to explore the possibilities of what can be achieved with hard work and the right…

BRAINBOOSTER PODCAST 17 : PHIL RICHARDS – FUELLING THE BRAIN

BRAINBOOSTER PODCAST 17 : PHIL RICHARDS – FUELLING THE BRAIN For a long time now, I have known that some of the tools and techniques I have used with players have had less than the desired impact due to the fact they had such a poor diet and, in turn, poor brain health. The software you try to install in a computer can only run as effectively as the hardware behind it. Today’s show will explain why and, more importantly, WHAT to do about this. Good brain health in conjunction with effective Mind Factor strategies and you have a very powerful combination. Today’s guest is Phil Richards.  www.philrichardsperformance.co.uk Amongst professional athletes and coaches, Phil Richards is regarded as one of the leading strength, conditioning and…

MONDAY MIND FACTOR MISSIVE : PEAK PERFORMANCE 30 October 2017

MONDAY MIND FACTOR MISSIVE : PEAK PERFORMANCE 30 October 2017 IS PERFECTIONISM HELPING YOU FORWARD… OR DRAGGING YOU BACK? Every golfer reading this article will have hit a shot that could legitimately be described as perfect. Ok, some of you might have to raid your memory banks more than others… but think back and it will be there.  That one moment when you felt the ball flush against the sweetspot and looked up to see it soaring straight down the fairway or at the pin. While the memory of that shot gives us pleasure, it can also be the cause of pain. The fact the ideal shot is not only real, but also within our grasp, can lead us into some tricky mental areas involving…

BRAINBOOSTER PODCAST 15: AN ORDINARY GOLFER SPEAKS EXTRAORDINARY SENSE! LIAM GLENNON

BRAINBOOSTER PODCAST 15: AN ORDINARY GOLFER SPEAKS EXTRAORDINARY SENSE! LIAM GLENNON We have a very different show today!!  A couple of weeks ago, a regular listener to the podcast, Liam Glennon, got in touch to say how much he was enjoying the topics we have covered.  To be able to listen to some of the world’s leading coaches and experts share their insight BUT he said ‘what about the ORDINARY player?’ Immediately this resonated with me. We hear a lot from experts which is absolutely great. It is wonderful to hear their wisdom of their collective experience but what about the grass roots? What about the thoughts, feelings and concerns of the ‘ordinary’ player. Liam called himself an ‘ordinary golfer’ but this year he has…
