Being at the pinnacle of a sport certainly brings its benefits but it can also be a lonely place.  Your talents and hard work have brought rewards and plaudits and you provide inspiration for aspiring sports people.

Even the most self-motivated professionals, go through difficult periods when maintaining training programmes and top performances can be especially tough.  

You only have to look at “heroes” like Tiger Woods, Maradona, Paul Gascoigne,… to realise that the pressures are huge and that even ‘superstars’ are human. It is only too common in professional sport that players can face grave situations such as depression, stress, under performance and anxiety which can lead to self-destructive behaviours such as gambling, alcohol and drug abuse.

Every athlete whatever their sport will need to balance their sport with other areas in their life such as education. They also have to manage key transition points as they progress their sporting career and post participation career. If the transitions are not managed effectively and are just allowed to happen they will impact on performance.

Life-style is 50% of performance.
