Your thoughts govern your future
“There will never be a better time and place than right now and right here to become a champion.” – Jim Afremow, PhD
Performance Psychology targets self-improvement efforts, which means focusing on your psychological preferences. Target what makes you competitive and on your performance, with an approach borrowed from Sports Psychology. Involve yourself, seriously, with a professional and become a champion in your own life.
Emphasize Strengths, Don’t Fix Weaknesses.
Look at your passions. Analyze your strengths and weaknesses. In the end, enjoy the results of your well-deserved efforts. “Perform at your best by looking at your personally unique set of talents with a professional, and improve your confidence to a new level.” – Richard W. Anton
“My body was built to lift heavy objects and throw them… I tried swimming and looked like a drowning monkey. I tried basketball and looked like a caveman…. It is far more lucrative and fun to leverage your strengths instead of attempting to fix all the chinks in your armor. The choice is between multiplication of results using strengths or incremental improvement fixing weaknesses that will, at best, become mediocre.” – Tim Ferris
Feeling confident, remember, is an emotion. It’s an exquisite emotion. It’s a requisite emotion for becoming a champion in your own life. Grow your performance acumen from casually reading about it to working with a professional on it. Get engaged with professional coaching or begin with a few individual sessions first.
“Never put limits or boundaries on yourself. When you do, that’s what you’re confined to.” – Tiger Woods
