| CGSA MENTALITY
What Are The 6 Levels of The Greenwood Mentality?
At The Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy we teach our students to embellish the right mindset or mentality. It's called The Greenwood Mentality. This is the mindset of an elite athlete. It is this attitude and total focus that separates the Best From The Best. CGSA calls this The Greenwood Mentality. Here is what it takes to be great...
1. Being a sponge and a total inquisitive footballing student.
"Finding how and what I can do to be better today than I was yesterday."
2. Bring Passion To The Process "Disect and plan out what is required each day to be GREAT."
3. Develop a mature approach to playing and learning the game. "Professional Culture"
4. Take responsibility towards what is necessary to be great and the maturity that is un-wavered by any negative influence. "Holding yourself accountable to always look to improve weakness, and perfect strengths.
5. Set SMART goals and take responsibility to what it takes to achieve those goals.
6. CGSA training programs are where our students become better members of their team, family and community. "Ultimately Becoming Better Versions of Themselves."
Below is the true blueprint of the Day To Day outline of the required lesson plans offered to the inspired students at The Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy Daily Skill Clinics. These important components are the backbone of each and every skill professional player and they are always rehearsed, reviewed, and retrained in their minds eye and installed in their mindset.
CG Mentality is Created From a Premise of Curiosity and Driven Mentality to Be The Best In The World...
A growth mindset is the idea that when meeting a challenge, we respond not with “I can’t do this,” but rather, “How can I learn to do this?” Carol Dweck, PHD one of the pioneers of fixed-versus-growth mindset research, says that unwarranted praise can promote a fixed mindset in children. The same is true of ourselves. While we should respond with self-encouragement after failing, we should also hold ourselves accountable—don’t let ourselves off the hook too easily. At its core, a growth mindset isn’t blind positivity, but rather the understanding that knowledge and achievement comes from the accumulation of hard work and practice.
"I don't think I am the best I know I am!"
