ABOUT THE MINDSET OF A PROFESSIONAL

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. At CGSA many of our students have learned through CGSA and The Greenwood Method of Technical, Tactical, Physical, and a very important Mental Approach to player development and showing up training professionally, but at the same time with great curiosity on how to BE A BETTER PERSON / ATHLETE TODAY THEN THEY WERE YESTERDAY.

5 PILLARS THAT MAKE UP THE GREENWOOD MENTALITY

  • PASSIONATE - "When you love something you find yourself working very hard on making it become part of your existence."

  • OBSESSIVE -  When a person has become compulsive about something and won't stop till they conquer it. To consume something with all your heart and sole. is obsessive. 

  • RESILIENT - A resilient behavior is someone that can overcome adversity. Important in someone's Soccer career when not all things go well and planned, but the act of building strong character forms an athletes character and will. This is the most important characteristic of a successful person, or athlete.

  • RELENTLESS - AS an elite athlete you must set goals and to pursue them with all your effort, and all your heart. Relentless is someone who will do everything in the power to ultimately becoming the"Best Version of Themselves".

  • FEARLESS - Fearless in sport and in life is important. If you want to be a difference maker in life as a Soccer player you need to take on responsibility to become that player. Through hard work and perseverance, and the obstacles you will face. The bad times and failures, and great times and championships, it is you who your teammates look to when it is pressure time. To be the best and capture The Greenwood Mentality you need to take all the weight on your shoulders and because you are prepared you are never in doubt in their eyes and in yours. Be confident to the chore.
