Understanding the impact of the roles you play in your life

What you can expect in this course

In this valuable course we will be discussing common issues within the roles we play.

There are many aspects to each of our roles. Some we like, some we do not. It is about learning how to be adaptable in all our roles and to understand that each role we play allows us to develop and strengthen our mental skill set.

Learning Objectives :

  • Understanding the issues within all of the roles we play in our lives
  • The importance of playing each role in our lives to the best of our ability
  • To create understanding that many of the issues we experience in our lives comes from not fully understanding our roles

Mental stress, mind pressure. Negative brain overload.

Lesson 1 – Introducing your EGO

In the first lesson we visit the EGO and gain an understanding of what it can do to us in the roles we play. It is a powerful thing and if it’s not controlled it can cause major issues for young athletes.

Understanding the roles you play in your life is critically important. It requires awareness and the ability to adapt.

Lesson 2 – The Roles We Play

In lesson 2 we discuss all the roles we play in our lives. We build awareness around the expectations and responsibilities in each of our roles. There is much more to these roles than we are often aware of.


"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way." - Viktor E. Frankl

Lesson 3 – 20 Questions

In Lesson 3 we walk through 20 questions that show us in detail the actions we must take in order to play our role successfully. It is a valuable process that can set the athlete up for future success when taking on new roles.



"My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities." - Mario Testino


Lesson 4 – Accept and Develop

Lesson 4 is all about accepting and learning how to adapt to new scenarios. When individuals become more flexible and openminded, they can then capitalize on the opportunities that are presented to them.

"The truth is: Belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect." - Brene Brown
