Rob Blackburne. The Footballer’s Mindset.

Leader Manager Coach Podcast

This week Rob speaks to ex footballer Rob Blackburne. Rob helps footballers with their mental health and life off the pitch to make them better on the pitch. He also runs a successful podcast, courses and is writing a book.  They discuss education, coaching and talk all about mindset and how it creates a successful life, making you the best you can be. KEY TAKEAWAYS Rob started off as a PT at 21 to being a nutritionist, training in CBT to where he is now. He has always been interested in mindset and this is what set him along his path. When Rob was released from Chelsea at 16 he surprisingly was ok with the major life change. He realised he couldn’t change it or affect it so he just accepted it. A mantra he has continued to follow throughout his career and life. Rob’s best friend was devastatingly diagnosed with motor neurone disease. Rob helped care for him more and more as he deteriorated. Shortly after his mum was diagnosed with cancer. So he was looking after his best friend, his mum and all his clients at the same time. Finally he ‘snapped’ and had an emotional breakdown including a prolonged panic attack. After this happened Rob realised that he needed to make some changes around how he faced life, how his brain was ‘wired’ and how he emotionally dealt with things. He had always read mindset books but wasn’t applying the learnings to himself, only his clients. He now understood that he needed to take his own advice. As Rob travelled on his journey he realised that he just wanted to help as many people as possible, he discovered that the more people you speak to the more you learnt and he applied this with his podcast. As Rob became more vulnerable and ‘dropped down his walls’ the more people that came to him for help. Group coaching is something Rob really believes in. He thinks it creates an extra support system as well as accountability. It also opens more avenues to be explored, such as creating games, competitiveness and more. Coaching is about asking world class questions to get the response you want and need. It’s not about telling people what to do necessarily, it’s about asking things so that the individual figures things out for themselves. The greatest leaders are the ones that lead people to better places. Through trying to help his wife, Rob discovered that his frustrations and anger were actually because he wasn’t fulfilling his potential and doing what he needed to do. Rob has written a book ‘Your Head In The Game’ which is currently being edited. He has also created courses you can gain invaluable knowledge from. Follow Rob on social media for more information. BEST MOMENTS “Enough information that would last you more than one lifetime” “I just wanted to play games” “My biggest breakdown was my biggest break-through” “I spent my life treating the physicality of people but under it all, after a few years…I think I am now a non-registered psychologist as it’s all about what’s up here not just the physical” “Focus on the processes not the outcomes” “My aim to create leaders” “All the knowledge is out there…you apply it when you’re accountable. People pay attention when they pay” VALUABLE RESOURCES Leader Manager Coach Podcast ABOUT THE GUEST Rob Blackburne Rob’s mission is helping footballers improve their on the pitch game by improving their mindset off it.
