Three Keys To Mental Performance
Question Of The Day –
“Coach P, I understand in order to perform at my best I need a routine, but how do I create one?”
If I ask multiple high-level performers about what the best of the best that I work with what they do to achieve peak mental performance, the consensus would be that they follow the build routines around the following three keys to mental performance in their preparation. By creating routines, they are effectively able to put them into action each and every day.
CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES TO CHANGE YOUR MENTALITY
When you show up to the locker room, the office, or the gym have a routine that you go through to shift your mindset from outside life to that of the athlete or business professional you want to be, so that you can be more present in order to separate the pressures of your daily life in order to create enjoyment around your craft.
When you change from your street clothes, leave the stress of life behind. Give yourself permission to be present and free to train and compete in your craft.
GO RADIO SILENT
Yes, I know…you can’t remember the last time you turned your phone off.
Well…if you want to be great, you must be present and a big part of your routines must be invested into getting your mind into the moment. As soon as that phone buzzes, it rips us out of the present-moment. Be abnormal in your approach.
Turning off your phone or app notifications while you are training/competing or working on that project will help you shut off the outside world and say “Hello, present-moment focus!”
RELAX, BREATHE, AND VISUALIZE
Taking two or three minutes to find a quiet place on your own to close your eyes, focus on your breathing and visualize your best performance of you in your craft will give you the presence of mind and body.
Remember that with visualization everything happens twice. First, in your mind, then in reality. It creates the confidence you need to get the most out of your day and your potential for that rep, set, training session, business meeting, practice, game, time with family, and, ultimately, your day.
If you get the most out of each day, you will get the most out of your career.
Today + Today + Today = your athletic and/or business career.
Make the destination where you are at today. Treat today like that championship or that dream job you want.
