#70 Conversations for Coaches | Help your gymnasts believe in themselves this season

This is the final episode of our year long Conversations with Coaches Weekly Mindset Workout series.

All month we’ve been talking about how to help your gymnast change their belief to something that will help serve them. The thought ladder is the best tool we’ve got, and we know that with practice it will be the best tool in your gymnasts tool belt as well! 

In this episode, Ali and Stacie discuss how to put the thought ladder into practice to help your athlete benefit from it. Just like learning a new skill on beam, developing the ability to use the thought ladder is a process. Each progression up the ladder takes time and dedication both in and out of the gym. 

We know believing something new is a skill that needs to be well conditioned. Writing out your gymnasts thought ladder and checking in with where they’re at intermittently will certainly help them develop stronger, more positive beliefs about themselves and their gymnastics. 

This podcast series is not meant to be something you listen to once. Rather that you use it throughout the year to get just the help you and your gymnasts need. So go back to January 1 and keep on going next year!

We would also be so grateful if you pass our podcast on to other coaches! Or simply leave a review so other coaches can get in on the mindset magic and we can help change the culture of our sport to be a place where gymnasts are healthy, happy and know how to win.

We have courses and coaching programs for individual gymnasts and gymnastics  teams that are based on proven behavioral science. And results that speak for themselves. Invest in the one thing that will have the greatest impact on your gym or your gymnasts success. Their mind.

#68 Are your gymnasts freaking out before season? Help them feel better.

Let’s get back to neutral. When your gymnast is spiraling with negative thoughts or beliefs about themselves, it’s so important to get them back to neutral first. They can’t see the positive side of things until they’ve been able to recognize the facts of the matter.

In this episode, Ali and Stacie teach you how to help your gymnast identify what things are facts and what are her thoughts. 

Thoughts are powerful things, and when gymnasts start to believe that their THOUGHTS are FACTS, they limit themselves to believing they can’t move past the thing they’re stuck on. 

This week, we’ll help you identify your gymnasts current beliefs and how to redirect them to positively impact your gymnasts’ lives.

#67 Help your gymnasts believe in themselves this season.

This week, we’re gearing up for competition by helping you instill some strong identity level beliefs in your gymnasts that will set them up for success this season.

We all have certain beliefs about ourselves and who we are. It’s really easy for athletes to believe their worth is contingent on their performance. They want to believe “they’ve got it”… but what will really help them is the belief that they can handle it, even when they don’t have it.

All this month, Stacie and Ali are talking about our most utilized resource, the Thought Ladder, and how it can help your gymnast go from hoping she’s got it, to believing she is capable of handling anything thrown her way. That is the true meaning of “I’ve got this.”

#64 How to actually use affirmations effectively.

When we don’t actually believe “I’ve got this,” saying “I’ve got this” won’t actually help. If your brain doesn’t believe that you’ve, in fact, GOT THIS, it’s going to put up a fight and start throwing lots of icks your way, trying to convince you that there’s no way “you’ve got this.”

Affirmations are only helpful when the “I AM” statement is something the gymnast can actually get behind.

So how do you find the right affirmations for your gymnasts? Great question! In this episode, our master mindset coaches, dig in to how to help your gymnast find the right combination of affirmations and tie them to how they want to feel on each specific event. Sometimes, it’s not as simple as just believing you can.

You’ve gotta take a smaller step and believe that you’re capable, or believe that you’re learning how… it all leads to the same place eventually. AWESOMENESS.

#62 What’s the secret to continued motivation?

Light energy and good vibes tend to get left behind during the grind of the competition season. We challenged our gymnasts to set big goals for themselves that are just a bit out of reach. Now, we’re working toward those goals, and sometimes, the goals are centered more around the end of season. So how do we keep these athletes motivated when they won’t know if they achieve their goal for 7 months?
That is a very long, boring, hustle if you ask me.

In this episode Ali and Stacie talk about the importance of celebrating milestones and growth along the way to the big goal. Making the little things seem like big things can help build momentum and fuel that desire to continue chasing the ultimate goal.

#61 This is the one thing your gymnasts need to learn if they are going to succeed.

Our gymnasts tend to believe that failure is not an option, when in fact, failure is the only way to learn new things. We know that a baby learning to walk is going to fall over a million times before they are stable enough to walk consistently and confidently.

Along the way, we celebrate each attempt as if our child is solving world peace. The look of pride a toddler has when they topple over after taking 1 measly step is so bright.

Don’t you wish your gymnast would have that sense of pride after trying something new, even if it isn’t perfect. Gymnasts tend to have a hard time appreciating the importance of failing because it is not a desirable outcome. But we’re not talking about a long term outcome, we’re talking about mini failures that can help an athlete grow and learn and develop new skills.

In this episode, Stacie and Ali talk about how to help your athletes view failure through a new, more productive lens.

#60 Want to help your gymnast actually apply your corrections?

Our Gold Membership is open until Thursday only! The best gift you can give your gymnasts AND yourself to have a team full of hardworking, self-motivated, emotionally healthy gymnasts is to encourage them to get mindset training!

Gymnasts spend countless hours training their body. But every single thing your gymnast does comes from her brain. In order to get a competitive advantage and unlock their full potential, your gymnasts must also train their brain.

Gymnastics is a mentally demanding sport. And those mental demands take a toll.

Gymnastics coaches and parents make the mistake of believing that a gymnast should get all the tools she needs from just one place – her coaches.

But your job as a gymnastics coach is to train your gymnasts in the gymnastics skills they needs. On multiple events and over time, at many different levels. That is already a lot of knowledge you must have – and teach.

And even though you are doing more than many coaches by listening to this podcast and getting mental training, it is simply not possible to spend time one on one out on the gym floor every week giving your gymnast the attention they need to figure out their brain.

Your gymnasts need the tools to deal with the natural wiring of their brains so they can overcome fear and frustration and learn to calm their competition nerves.

They need the tools to deal with perfectionism and self-doubt to learn how to compete calmly and confidently.

Gymnastics mindset training is the most effective way to help your gymnasts learn the mental skills they need to win in – and out – of the gym.

Your opinion means the world to your parents and gymnasts. Let them know they should check out our gold program!

We would love to help any of your gymnasts who are still working to get their skills for season, especially those that are struggling with fear, frustration and the defeat of past failed attempts.
