051 Why Talking Matters

Mental Toughness is not just about getting your head down and gritting it out, it’s more complex than that.  Simply talking about the situations that we find ourselves in, our problems or challenges can help people in lots of different ways, even if you are mentally tough.

You’ll find in this episode, former professional footballers Peter Ramage,  Brendan Pearson and Julian Dowe vouch for this in this episode.  As the saying goes “a problem shared is a problem halved”.


Key Learning Points:

  • We’ll share 5 reasons why talking is important
  • You’ll be walked through how to “control the controllables”
  • Professional sport is not a smooth ride, the right kind of support to help you emotionally and to help you look at relevant solutions is fundamental to your psychological well-being and for optimum performance.
