Sport requires a great deal of physical fit and vitality, paying attention to the present moment
and coping strategies for stress and resilience. It has been observed that sportspersons face
difficulties such as pressure, socio-economic inequalities, injuries and exploitation.
The visible impact we see is that a few of them dropout midway through their careers or they perform poorly. There is the danger of underestimating the self or becoming highly self-centered. They also need to balance other aspects of their lives with sports training.
In view of these challenges, we offer training based on Mindfulness. Mindfulness allows sportspersons to become aware of personal thoughts and feelings. This way, they can focus on the skills to maintain, quickly overcome problems and generate better results.
The training was a quantum leap in motivation for all. Now coming to self I was not very vocal during the training. The reason was “dropping the stories” as most of the stories was with me and the stories are like self-imposed taboos about which I was thinking and even now thinking. I always have biased and illogical confidence in my brain power and not on the body. Now I have come across the issues of the self, the body, and its synchronization. Small changes I am working out and hoping for a changed self.
It was a wonderful experience. The 4 days were, really, a learning curve. It was really sort of renewal ,as taught in the training, of Physical, Social, Mental and Emotional. In the last 17 years, of my experience , I’ve attended around 8 training programmes . After the training, when someone asks, I would explain it theoretically or rather unable to share. The Module of this Program has been conceptualised in an exemplary way. The execution was too good. Mr.Nitten was exceptional.
Earlier paragraph, I had said,” I was unable to share the earlier training programmes experiences with my friends, colleague or relatives”. I am so happy that I have started sharing this little knowledge, gained ,with my Friends and Family. I had met 2 of my Friends, through my IIM class,on Friday . I was sharing this experience of, 6 needs, Daily renewals , Scramble pattern and Anchoring with them. They were astounded and said, ”It sounds good and realistic”. Yesterday, it was with my wife and neighbours in my Flat. They were all surprised to see a change in my body language and conversation.
Moreover, during the Training we did this exercise of dropping the stories. I had done this with my sister. I reached home yesterday night. I was sharing the happenings of training program with my wife. During the course she said, ”Your sister called me daily in the last 4 days. This has really worked for me. Thank you Nitten. You know what- Today, I got up and then my son woke up. Along with him I shouted,” This is going to be a great day”.
This made me realise how Contribution and Growth can Change not only other’s lives ,but, ours as well. It also made me realise the fact, that,” Language represents Internal Experience”, one of the NLP Pre-suppositions is true.
I believe in the statement of ADI SANKARA—“What we know is 1/6th the size of our palm”. I also understand, with the smattering knowledge one has, we can do wonders if we know how to leverage it. This program has emphasized it.
