Commitment - Coaching What it Takes to Succeed
Commitment is one of those essential - must have - non negotiable - highly desirable qualities of successful athletes and coaches - yet it is also one of the least understood.
The challenge is this.
Everyone will talk about the importance of commitment - but few understand how to coach it.
Unlike physical skills such as speed, strength and endurance which have well established training methodologies - how do coaches actually coach commitment?
As a working model consider this. In any given situation, a committed athlete - when given the choice between doing things the hard way or the easy way will choose to do things the hard way - or if you like the "right way".
It's the cumulative effect of the athlete choosing to do things the "hard-way" that creates a committed lifestyle and makes a significant impact on every aspect of their sports preparation and performance.
Having a working definition of commitment helps coaches to then develop innovative and creative ways of coaching commitment in their athletes through training, lifestyle and competition experiences.
