Mind Motivation Global is a company run by Dean McDonald, a professional footballer for over 20 years.
Signed by Arsenal at 14, Dean has played top flight football for most of his life and has experienced the persistent pressure to produce definite results from his entire environment.
Currently representing England’s 6-a-side team in the Annual Socca World Cup; Dean began looking at the way forward after football. Seeing many players around him either going into coaching or management, Dean decided to look deeper at his options.
Thinking about his early football career; Dean realised that as well as being strong physically, you had to be equally strong mentally to succeed in the top flight.
Dean explored this further, whilst training to become a personal trainer, a referee and also a Community Youth Co-ordinator.
Dean saw that the spinal cord of optimal performance focused on the mind first. The mind had to be in a fit state in order to accept and become the epicentre of operation. To be able to multi-task; manage life, work, family and balance the expectations of all areas of life, the mind needs to be motivated to do so.
“Therein Mind Motivation Global was born!”
This company seeks to assist the balance of the mind, in order to unlock the key to well-being and a balanced life whatever your goals are.
To begin with, this is to be done in 3 key areas: Mentoring; Motivational Speaking & Coaching..
“So just like the mind, the possibilities are endless..”
We have an deep expertise within the football business and want to focus implicitly on the areas below.
We feel there is a real lack of emphasis on these areas in football
This is not limited just to football, but to all aspects of life.
“Over the last 16 years of myself coaching, Dean would be one of, if not the most naturally gifted footballers we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Good leadership qualities, Dean made others with inferior ability feel comfortable and appreciated for what they had to offer.“
“A very popular person in the changing room with a warm smile and nature. Dean has so much to offer the next generation of future footballers with he’s life and career experiences added with he’s ability to relate to up and coming players in a positive way.“
Gavin Rose – Dulwich Hamlet Football Club Manager
“I knew about Dean as a schoolboy long before I saw him play. Everybody spoke about his magical feet & individual skill, he was often compared to Brazilian legend Romario in his playing style and stature.“
“Two footed, technically gifted, a repertoire of finishes, strong and a deceptive burst of pace. He is one of my favourite players to have played with and in his prime would have paid good money to watch.“
Osei Sankofa – Welling United First Team Coach & ex Team Mate
“As vice-captain of the England 6 aside team, he has had to deal with many different personalities of people managing with the team and leadership on and off the pitch. He has shown his qualities on the pitch by being top scorer for the team in the last two world cups.”
Jamie Leggatt – England 6-A-Side Manager
“Dean is another talented footballer who has taken the referee course to use his understanding of the game to excel in refereeing Dean has a wealth of playing experience at various levels and is a solid addition to the London FA Referees Panel. He has been invited to join the FA Referee Accelerated Promotion Scheme (Fast Track)”
