For most high-level executives and athletes, meeting professional demands in the boardroom or playing field is easy. The process of working towards achieving goals and meeting milestones is straightforward and relatively simple. The support of trusted advisors, coaches, team members, and peers in the industry help professionals stay focused on the prize, whatever it may be.
When it comes to family, relationships, and other aspects of their personal lives, expectations, and challenges aren't always as clearly defined as objectives in professional endeavors. For sports players and high-level executives, the lack of 'winning' at relationships can cause stress, negative feelings, and in some cases, result in harmful or adverse behaviors.
Luckily, professionals who long for the same level of success they've found in sports or business can use mental coaching to make success in their personal lives become a reality.
"I believe that your mental health IS the most important area to invest in above even your physical health. A healthy mind helps create a healthier person," said Melanie Shmois, mental coach for athletes.
She continued, "Most of us know the importance of working out physically, but rarely do we focus on the importance of mental workouts. I work with clients and teach them how to use the skills they've developed in the gym or office to work for them in their personal relationships. Regardless of the issue, facing problems head-on is the most direct step you can take to fix them."
Life is a "long game." Family is the only stable thing that anyone has at the end of the workday or playing season. After all, they're the ones who go with you if you get traded or have to relocate! Nurturing these relationships is essential to living a well rounded, happier, and more balanced life.
If you're unhappy with the current state of your marriage or family life, it has the potential to impact every other area of your life. Mental coaching is a proven way to overcome obstacles while achieving balance and success at work and home. Melanie Shmois of MindYourStrength.com offers keen insights and processes that help clients build healthier relationships with themselves, significant others, spouses, children, friends, and other family members.
