Have fun at the World Cup?

Yeeeessssss – shout the fans but football stars and coaches often say: “It’s getting serious now”, putting on a correspondingly determined face.  According to our studies on the subject of wingwave coaching at the Cologne Sports College – carried out by qualified psychologist, Marco Rathschlag – an attitude embodied by: “If it’s important, we really get serious”, could even be an unnecessary hindrance to sporting performance.

The emotion “enjoyment” releases high performance potential.

The wingwave research results show that sportsmen unlock their highest physical energy levels when they experience enjoyment; they can jump their highest and run their fastest when they are enjoying what they are doing – it even applies to endurance sports. These results for physical energy are, of course, also extremely relevant if you want to be successful at football.

“If it’s important, you have to be serious!” – a dogma of many high-performance sportsmen

In the field of sports coaching, we conducted a simple check with high-performance sportsmen – among them football players – using the myostatic test, by testing the following statements:

  • “Sport is allowed to be fun.”
  • “Football is allowed to be fun.”
  • “A World Cup is allowed to be fun.”

The results give food for thought: when the word enjoyment or fun was paired with words such as “championship” or “competition”, the ring broke on nearly every sportsperson. The subjects tested were overwhelmingly and above all subconsciously of the opinion that these positive emotions have no place in those crucial moments when they have to perform. To explain the test: if a coachee is unable to keep the ring formed by his thumb and forefinger closed when force is applied to it while he is undergoing the myostatic test, this means: “The statement triggers stress!”

Resource coaching with wingwave for an inspiring belief system

This is the starting point for the wingwave coach to use targeted belief coaching to enable the sportsperson to experience their best possible strength and muscle control through the emotion of enjoyment at the very most important moment of their performance.  “A World Cup is allowed to be fun” tests strongly after the coaching and unleashes energy which gives physical strength and intelligent responses.

wingwave – an effective “stress buster” opens the door to sporting success

wingwave coaching in general is a successful, fast and lastingly effective “stress buster” against all types of stadium stress such as tension in the face of the bogey team, chanting from the opposition fans, media hype, travel and climate discomforts, to name but a few examples. Inspired by the football World Cup in Brazil, I think of the many sports coaching sessions which have led to success using wingwave coaching. In 2007 wingwave gave wings to the German handball national team, and they became world champions. Golfers, ice-skaters, sailors and dancers have also been able to triumph with the support of wingwave coaches.

Your Return to the Pleasure of Movement

The days are warmer again, nature lures us outside. It could be more sport yet again, however, many people have the right intentions, but not the right actions. Children, on the other hand, –automatically love movement with ease, without any strings attached. They romp around and play when they can – it’s just fun for them. You go through a natural rhythm of relaxation, concentration on a particular toy, and then joy of motor activity. We’ve all experienced this natural joy of motion in the first years of life as a daily companion. From the beginning of school, the body receives the systematic command to “sit still” or it says: “the child cannot sit still, it still cannot go to school.” What do children think – even if they are not a “Zachary Philip”? “I am big, I can sit long – I must go to school!” Sitting is associated with this, even at the tender age of classroom success and career. Overall, our society has an ambivalent, almost divided attitude to the subject of movement. Of course, movement is healthy. On the other hand, it is regarded as an ornament of civilization, that man can sit for a long time: at school, at the dinner table, in the conference. This silence is rewarded by dominates it as polite and cultured referred. Children are so often reminded not to move around or to fidget, to be not so ‘wild’. So, movement is even linked with pejorative terms.

Every healthy person has 656 muscles, where they account for 40%, with the woman about 23% of total body mass in men. These muscles, through a well-developed muscle memory, are stored in the brain, in which more than 10,000 movements are represented. A simple example are processes such as riding a bicycle, which remain with us our entire life as “Flesh and blood”. Our muscles store various “commands” to harness, rest, relax and organise them reliably, at the unconscious level. We are talking here about muscle memory.

The prohibition of movement from childhood can block us in adulthood in terms of the phenomenon of “Muscle memory”. Many people in our society would love to move more, but are still blocked by a ban in doing so from childhood. In this respect, many people are not lazy, but only the urge to move is solidified at the unconscious level. This phenomenon in hypno therapy is called “Katalepsien”. Hypnosis can change the stored commands in the muscles and you remember again the fun and enjoyment of active movement. So, the return of movement pleasure can be achieved and “it works again!”. Sport, jogging, walking feels easy and good, long periods of sitting only create excruciating boredom. This works  at a unconscious level, naturally and automatically. Support with self-coaching is offered by the wingwave-Music, for example.
