Mastering Limitless Performance Dynamics
High performance is a “state” that brings everything together – it’s where the inner and outer games harmonize and your potential is realized Establishing high performance is not simply about talent or mechanics, but rather about finding mastery. It is a set of triggers, disciplines, mental influencers that come together harmoniously to create an enhanced form of existence and deliberate mastery. When optimized, these elements significantly raise our ability to reach peak performance and map the path to reinstating the state of high performance at our own will.
There is a natural ebb and flow to creating Limitless Performance that is easy to understand, but not quite so easy to master. Unfortunately it is when the game ebbs that we find a drop in the quality of our enjoyment, confidence, focus, and belief in our performance. The Limitless Performance Program is keen on developing athletes who live by a unique process and desire to continually learn, grow, and develop into the best they can be. Establishing a foundation and a clear understanding on how your accomplishments have shaped who you are today and mapping a clear path on who you ideally want to be, how you want to play, and what results you want to achieve within your game. The program assists you in devising a plan to achieve that which you desire through consistency in confidence, focus, results, performance and fun.

Even if the primary goal is as simple as enhancing enjoyment of the game, you will still remain to see an improvement in your overall performance. Furthermore you will discover that the application and teachings of the program result in an overall roadmap to mastery, and a peak to all areas of life. It is a practice we take with ourselves to all arenas of life!

 

A Brief List of Development & Mastery You Will Achieve

This is just a partial list of some of the areas critical to conquering the most common challenges that athletes say they consistently face. Each one of these areas will enhance and optimize your performance level, and are drawn from Limitless Performance Program components that you’ll see below. To perform at your highest potential, you must:

  • Develop confidence, feel it during the challenge of sport, and keep it in the aftermath of adversity
  • Identify your personally preferred method of practice that yields the best results in the least amount of time
  • Learn how to transfer what works in practice to the playing field
  • Create long-term, powerful goals and short-term strategies that work toward the future AND have an immediate effect on performance
  • Remove distractions in order to develop concentration, focus, alertness, decision-making abilities, and other attributes of successful top athletes
  • Develop the understanding of the Mindset of performance and the ability to shift it in the moment
  • Beat self-sabotage before it begins
  • Break down any barriers to improved performance
  • Create a network and team for success
  • Develop a plan for success; implement that plan, be accountable to it, and overcome anything that gets in the way of it
  • Develop a personal success formula and routines that anchor you to your mapped success
  • Use your current level of skill to produce the best results you are currently capable of producing
  • Create a game philosophy and perspective that creates success both in sports and life

So how will you develop the above?

The Limitless Performance Program

Part 1: Establishing A Game Plan

Most athletes are looking for something more out of their performance or game, but they are either unclear of exactly what it is or have only defined part of the goal and not the complete picture. For instance, a hockey player may name a tactic he wants to achieve, but spends no time painting a picture around the type of experience he wants to have while playing or how he plans to handle adversity. Without this clarity and complete vision, you can struggle to reach the level of performance you’re looking for – and even if you reach your goal, you may still feel like something is missing. Any of this can lead to uncertainty, lack of confidence in decision-making, lack of fulfillment and enjoyment, and feeling constantly bored or consistently uneasy.

Part 2: Establishing The Foundation of Your Mindset Performance

When it comes to high performance, athletes are simply unaware of why they perform well one day, and poorly the next. It’s rarely, if ever, the skill level that changes from day to day or even moment to moment; it’s the athlete’s Mindset that is constantly changing. These up and downs often create a love/hate relationship with their sport that leads to joys and disappointments. Simply stated, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, they just don’t receive the full benefits of what their sport is capable of providing. By understanding the nature of mindsets and its role in performance, an athlete can take steps to proactively create consistent experiences, as well as make quick adjustments in the moment when things go sour. Without the right type and amount of mindset fluidity, the game is lost before it’s even played.

Part 3: Finding and Harnessing Your Limitless Performance Influencers

How do you make real, meaningful, and intentional changes in the moment in a manner that either redirects your momentum to get back on track or further enhances your intensity when things are going well? This amazing component helps you understand how to solve issues – on and off the ice in real time. Waiting to make adjustments after your game is for long-term progress – and of course that is very important. You also need to know what to do in the moment so you can revamp, rethink, and retry on the fly.
Our role is to help you understand and embrace how to both boost and calm your intensity and performance as you are playing. You will develop a personal success formula that can be applied in the moment – capitalizing on your strengths, routines, traits, preferences, and attitude. This in turn dramatically improves the repeatability and consistency of your performance.

Part 4: Discipline Meets Mastery

One often wonders as to where these distractions, lack of motivation or confidence, sabotaging self-talk, and other hexes that plague athletes comes from? The world’s greatest athletes get their calm, cool swagger from a frame of mind, perspective, or attitude that unleashes their full potential. They have developed an approach to their game that keeps their motivation high, their resiliency strong, and their ability to spot opportunities to excel sharp. The teachings of Discipline=Mastery is instrumental in bringing out your ideal performance state.

Part 5: Establishing Your Success Formula

It is key to understand and embrace the notion that what worked yesterday may not necessarily work today, nor should it. It is also important to recognize the importance of personal evolution and the fact that both You and Your Game are forever evolving. You have to continue to refine your approach – keeping what’s working, modifying as you go, and eliminating the elements that no longer serve you.

This optimization process and learning to navigate the evolution of your game takes time. Understanding what is and is not working in your game can be complex, as is determining the real driver behind the changes in your performance. Is it what it appears to be on the surface or is it something else that you’re overcompensating for? This is where real optimization comes from – knowing truly what is at the core of your existence and your performance level, and knowing how to mold, shape, and evolve it proactively and deliberately over time.

It’s time for you to play the game as you’ve never played it before

Mental Coaching:
1. Athletic Profile

  • Developing an understanding of the athletes personality type as a performer and within a team setting
  • Investigating perceived strengths and weaknesses
  • Developing an understanding of the athletes ability to address adversity, peaking under pressure, mental preparation, concentration, fears, worry, coachability
  • Identifying the intrinsic/extrinsic variable with measurements specific to burnout
  • Developing an understanding of the athletes learning style. Providing specific guidelines for the coaches with respect to achieving optimal results on communicating and educating the athlete

2. One-On-One Sessions:

Individual coaching sessions are targeted at addressing challenges, providing tools to improve mental skills, establishing a process, and boosting confidence in thriving and excelling in performance.

  • Establishing a foundation and a thorough understanding of the athletes behavioral patterns
  • Maintaining accountability in consistently developing and maintaining the desired habit formation
  • Providing the athletes with an accepting, solution based safe space to express fears and concerns
  • Pre-game and Post- game check-in’s to manage mental perspective on personal goals, and maintain confidence in personal potential – assurance in managing the performance to be delivered and in accepting and assessing the mental components to the performance that was delivered.

3. Experiential Education

Experiential education is where methodologies and concepts are taught through purposeful engagement with athletes in direct experience and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, clarify values, and develop the ability to apply knowledge and skills through experience. Eg. Teaching the concepts of Fear in a classroom setting followed by taking the education onto the ice and transforming it into experience.
Experiences are structured to require the athlete to take initiative, make decisions, and be accountable for results. Throughout the experiential education process the athlete is actively engaged in investigating their own patterns, solving problems, assuming responsibility, being creative, and constructing meaning. Athletes are engaged intellectually, emotionally, socially, mentally and physically. This involvement produces a perception that the education portion is authentic to life and performance.
The benefits received from the ‘Experiential Education’ is endless. The team develops a thorough background on all the primary concepts attached to the mental side of performance and has the opportunity to take the education to new heights through experince on and off the ice. Another grand element that develops from this section of the program is heightened team dynamics as relationships are developed and nurtured between the athlete and the self, athlete and his team, and the athlete and his performance. Some examples from the curriculum: (The curriculum will be customized to what is most required by the team).

  • Understanding your team (individual based/ team based)
  • Motivation in Performance
  • Emotional control in high performance
  • Control of thoughts
  • The art of concentration (Staying in the NOW)
  • Intensity (purpose and control)
  • Fear
  • Pre-competition guidelines
  • Post-comp guidelines
  • Enhancing Read & React Skills

4. Team Development:

Team development is catered to assisting all Coaches in further understanding the individual factors that exist within each athlete in establishing smooth uninterrupted communication and coaching. The meetings are aimed at creating an enhanced understanding of each athlete’s specific needs and methods of best receiving information so that the coaches can further tailor their programs in gaining better results.

  • Learning the essentials of what is necessary to fuel peak performance within each athlete
  • Overcoming challenges unique to each athlete
  • Recognizing the importance of managing your team based on differing personality types and learning styles while coaching

5. Neurofeedback Training

The neurofeedback system is used to allow the athlete the ability to discover the potential of their brain. The system is used to develop and enhance the management of intensity and thought within the brain. The athlete learns how to self-regulate and improve the ability to control stress, anxiety, and intensity and most importantly to calm the mind. The system is quick in providing accurate feedback on when the athlete is achieving results and the duration of achievement. The system also provides information on the mental approach of the athlete and the level of brain synchronicity achieved for both short-term and long-term (systematic charting and data is provided).

6. Meditation

The human mind is relentlessly on a journey of self-discovery where we are ever curious, easily distracted, and always on the go. This continuous mind wandering is the very element that stops us from placing thought into logic and rather locking us in a realm of the imagination where we allow our negative self-beliefs, fears and concerns to haunt us. Furthermore this arena of cluttered thinking is also the primary source of disconnect between who we are and who we want to be. This is a sacred time where each session is meant to serve a greater purpose. We start light and dig deep into both the positive parts of our existence and the negative. Some examples from the meditation work:

  • Connecting with our breath and finding the voice within
  • Believing in something greater than yourself
  • Finding the internal safe space to anchor ourselves to for those hard days
  • Practicing calm in chaos

It’s time for you to play the game as you’ve never played it before
