I was introduced to coaching back in 2003, when I started working as a corporate trainer and coach for a company in Australia. However, it was in December 2006, during a visit to my family back in India, when my journey as a Mind Coach began. This visit happened to coincide with my younger brother, Pankaj Advani’s, preparations for the upcoming Asian Games in Doha. Drawing from my coaching experience in the corporate sector, I coached him to gain more self-belief and confidence, as well as convert pressure into performance. Following this, Pankaj went on to win his maiden Games Gold Medal in Billiards, dedicating his win to our coaching sessions. I then applied the same coaching principles to mentally toughen some of my friends in cricket, tennis, and cue Sports. Being a National-level Billiards competitor myself, and with the experience in mind coaching Pankaj and my friends, I understood the need for such guidance in the field of professional sports and how it could help the sportspersons bring pride to the nation. Following this realisation, I went on to pursue my PhD in Sport and Performance Psychology, meanwhile mastering the art of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) – a behavioural technology specialising in rewiring the human mind to achieve peak performance.
So far in my experience as a Mind Coach, I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most brilliant minds over the course of my career; dealing hands-on with athletes from over a dozen sports, students from schools and colleges, to professionals in the fields of entrepreneurship and entertainment. Personally, the experience of working with them to bring forth their potential and seeing them excel in their respective fields bring about absolute fulfilment every single day. While some of them have gone on to become champions, World No. 1s, Olympic medallists, corporate honchos, and National as well as International stars, many more are on their way to Tokyo 2021 and beyond. I have been and am continuing to coach sports people at various levels in disciplines such as golf, tennis, cricket, badminton, football, motor racing, squash, chess, triathlon, rock-climbing, fencing, swimming, table tennis, archery and several more.
In my 15 years of experience so far, the mind, I believe is one of the most powerful yet versatile assets we possess and to master it is nothing short of an art in itself. Isn’t it strange that we are taught how to read, write, drive, play, etc., but not educated on how to compete, overcome mental hurdles and optimize our greatest weapon – the mind?
