Dario Simic has just returned from Basel with a game winning goal and some self-confidence that may have been previously lacking, as the Croatian national team on which he plays defeated Argentina 3-2. He said: “I have been through difficult times and I really don’t know how I found the strength to go on. This goal has given me confidence. I was able to stay focused thanks to having faith, and to MilanLab.
In tough times, how do we stay in control and prevent ourselves from falling too low? “What helped me very much was the program used by our psychologist Bruno De Michelis.
Everything starts in the mind: “Players on the big clubs must be able to overcome difficulties and to get rid of the stress that accumulates when you have to play, train, and travel. It is also difficult to stay in top form without too much playing time and to remain alert for when you are called upon to enter a match. I must say Milan was there for me and had confidence in me.”
Since my turn around things have been going much better. I scored the winning goal against Argentina.
De Michelis said of Simic: “The real hero is Dario. With only a few sessions in the Mind Room we were able to find the right formula to analyze and improve his mental state. In this way, he has improved his capacity of movements, his stress control and the way he behaves in the moment he his called upon to shine. The moment that decided the match against Argentina is proof of this.
