The use of NLP has had a significant impact in the area of sports performance. Some of the world’s leading sports people have put their success down to using NLP techniques.
NLP provides a series of tools and techniques that enable individuals to challenge and change any limiting beliefs, behaviours and habits and in the process enhance their sports performance.
A lot of sports performers spend a lot of their time focusing on improving their fitness and technical ability and often the mental element is neglected, even at world class level.
Most sportspeople have experienced times when they are ‘in the zone’, where they are performing at their physical and mental best.
When asked to describe this state people often say that they feel as though “time has slowed down”
In sports today, the ability to access this state and optimise mental skills can mean the difference between winning and losing.
A fighter who has mentally rehearsed his moves in his mind in what we call “trance time” and who knows how to use NLP techniques to access peak states of lightning speed and explosive power just when required has a distinct advantage.
Tiger Woods, Andre Agassi, Greg Norman, Jimmy White, Michael Vaughan are among many highly successful sports performers who use NLP techniques consistently to achieve excellent results.
