Sports mental health is no different from any other job-related stress. When you reach the top of your game, the only way is down, whether it be in sport or business. With some, the problem is fear of losing. With others, it is the fear of letting down those who helped them to succeed.
There is a difference in the environment the person finds themselves in. A sportsperson is in the limelight far more than most businessmen. Both have grown up on the climbing ladder of success, and suddenly they are there – at the top.
The sportspeople who relish in fame, like Andy Murray, cope with all that comes to them. Others will start to worry about their performance when they have reached the top. Those below are chasing hard so you have to improve even more.
Then there is the media. The slightest blip in their performance, and the media starts the downward trend. Miss a goal in a penalty shootout and you are blasted by social media.
In the past. those who could not cope carried on regardless until they just faded away, but today they cannot do that, and so some have started to call a rest period (a mental health break) time away from it all to sum up the situation with themselves and the pressure put on them by their success.
