His Emotional Fitness Journey
Robert’s fascination with Emotional Fitness and Mental Skills started as an 11-year-old when selected for the Mid-Canterbury rep soccer team. While very proud of this achievement, he felt out of his depth at this higher level. This massive self-doubt was reflected in not excelling under pressure. Then a similar challenge aged 18 playing tennis for Mid-Canterbury, helped trigger his thirst to learn everything he could about growing his self-esteem and inner confidence, to release self-doubt and gain the edge in both sport and business.
Read the full story here, with a core junction in this journey understanding the powerful influence of emotions in creating his thoughts and future outcomes. Over the 20 years of developing the Emotional Fitness Toolkit, he discovered loads of suppressed emotions and anger that created his self-doubt. Learning the key tools to be able to own and integrate negative emotions so that they facilitate growth was a huge benefit. The outcome of this inner growth journey was a new feeling of freedom, which is the fuel driving him today to help others have greater self-belief under pressure to achieve peak performance in sport and life.
Over the years, Robert had noticed a big reduction in self-doubt when in a supportive positive team environment. This has driven Robert’s passion to help others shift their team thinking, to the new culture of collaboration and high-performance trust. Especially important today when the old methods of team communication are no longer as effective. Hence the right technology to share, focus and support team collaboration, can create huge gains in productivity and team performance.
