Philadelphia, PA -- Dec 03, 2012 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- "The sports psychology of mental focus and resolve helped the NFL Kansas City Chiefs create an emotional win over the Carolina Panthers 27 to 21," says Todd Stofka Sports Performance Expert http://www.thebestweightlosssolution.com/sports-psychology-football/. The Chiefs team played in the tragic shadow of the Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher having killed his girlfriend and taken his own life the previous morning.
There were talks of canceling or postponing the game as the result of this recent tragedy. However the coach thought that playing the game could be therapeutic.
So how do you turn the hearts of the men on the Kansas City Chiefs and the grieving community around? These are 2 classic sports psychology traits that not only work in football, in every area of life.
a. Mental Focus. Coach Romeo Crennel got his team together. Instead of 58 mourning individuals, he pulled them together as a team. To get rid of the "dreariness" of the locker room, he had them focus on one thing to break there state of mind and that was to beat the Carolina Panthers.
Without a vision and plan teams and individuals flounder and perish. Crennel was able to unconsciously rewire these players. Knowing how much they love the game of football by playing it would be therapeutic for them and the community.
b. Resolve. When faced with any tragedy or distraction it takes resolve to focus on what you want. In this case, taking a team of men from mourning to warriors for at least the afternoon created a distraction from the pain of this event.
Crennel told the Chiefs to, "Remember the positive things about Belcher - how hard he played, how dedicated and passionate he was - and to try to honor those memories." This type of leadership creates a resolve and determination to play well for a purpose. When athletes enter into their purpose it makes it easy for them to enter the zone of peak performance.
If any of these are an issue, it makes sense to seek out a mental sports performance coach to help keep you in the game.
