#037 – A Mental Strength Exercise That Will Help You Perform at Your Best
The conversations you have with yourself matter. Your inner dialogue affects how you feel and how you behave.
The things you say to yourself impact you over the long-term. If you call yourself names and put yourself down, your self-worth will be affected. And you might not try hard things because you’ll assume you can’t succeed.
The conversations you have with yourself also matter in the short-term. What you think right before you make a sales call or the things that run through your head right before you walk into a party affects how you act–and it could determine whether you have fun, close a deal, or consider yourself competent.
That’s what I’m talking about on today’s episode–how to have a conversation that will set you up to succeed.
No matter what you’re doing, this little exercise will help you perform at your peak.
It’s a trick elite athletes use. But you don’t have to be an NBA star to use it. It can help you do anything better–like negotiate a raise or give a presentation.
