Show Notes:

THE IMPORTANCE OF DEVELOPING MENTAL SKILLS FOR PERFORMANCE/SUCCESS

  • Build little mental things in a daily basis and it begins to grow.
  • You just need to keep adding things slowly over time and let it grow and not feel that you’ve got to flip side one day then you’ll have this mental toughness.
  • There are 4 big areas when it comes to mental toughness: confidence level, motivation, your ability to focus and refocus. Figure out of those 4 the one that they need to work on the most and then start to look at that.
  • For example refocus, a lot of people who has been lost or distracted how to be back to the task on hand? That comes down to awareness and training yourself to be able to do so.
  • Cellphones make it difficult for people to refocus because these are such a distraction and it is hard to maintain focus.
  • Easy way to start with is changing how they utilize their cellphone so that the phone is off or silent when they are trying to do work.

WHAT DOES TRUE CONFIDENCE LOOK LIKE

  • A lot of times people think confidence comes from external sources. Confidence comes from two factors: belief and trust in yourself.
  • Also, being able to have true confidence when you truly believe in yourself and believe that things will work out.
  • Trusting yourself that you have whatever it takes to go against whatever comes your way.
  • Be honest to yourself, follow through and stick to your word.

MENTAL IMAGERY, HOW IT WORKS AND WHY IT IS SO POWERFUL

  • We use imagery and it becomes so real. We observe someone and we kinda picture that in mind and then we attempt it.
  • We are actually created to learn faster and better through pictures that we create in our mind.
  • Imagery is so powerful and creating not only seeing something but the feelings that are associated with it, the reason for that is the biochemical change that occurs in our body when we do imagery.
